Did you try the wombaroo dot com website? I believe they sell the powder there. It comes in a blue box, you can order it online and have it shipped to you directly. The other ingredients are typically easy to find in your supermarket, with the exception of bee pollen which I found on Amazon. I make mine and freeze it, it lasts about 6-8 weeks for me.

2 Cups Warm Water
1.5 Cups Honey
3 Scrambled Eggs(can cook in microwave or stovetop)
1/4 Cup High Protein Wombaroo Powder (Increase to 1/2 cup for pregnant/lactating females.)
1 Tablespoon Bee Pollen

Cook Eggs, set aside.
In a large bowl mix warm water and honey until the honey dissolves.
Add in the Wombaroo High Protein Supplement and mix well.
In a blender, blend eggs, bee pollen, and 1 cup Wombaroo High Protein Supplement mixture for two minutes.
Add remaining Wombaroo High Protein Supplement mixture to blender and blend for two minutes.

Pour the HPW diet mixture into a freezer safe container or ice cube trays and freeze. It freezes to a soft consistency that is easily scooped nightly.
Nightly Feeding(per glider):
1.5 Teaspoon of Original HPW
1 Tablespoon of mixed Fruit
1 Tablespoon of mixed Vegetables

I highly recommend switching to the OHPW version of this. slightly harder to make, need raw honey, but is the SAME THING, just not instant. ALSO I recommend the version of instant WAY MORE then exotic nutrition.

1. people have complained about the quality of exotic nutrition's version.
2. critterlove version sold extensively AND by many other places but usually
repackaged. IE pocket pets.
3. I started with instant, then got the wombaroo powder with a new set of rehomes.
so I made it up instead of wasting it, the gliders LOVED it, would not eat
the instant if OHPW was available.
4. some have posted statements questioning the quality of instant as far as the
chemicals needed to dry the honey and eggs into a powder... some K chemical.

Finally to answer your question.
I received information that the Critterlove version of OHPW/instant from
maker peggy brewer, that all the calcium and vitamins the gliders need is in
the instant ALREADY..along with the required fruits and vegetables on the side.
I have used wombaroo high protein powder mixed into OHPW for all 7 or 8 years
I have had my gliders.
