    Or have a wander round any local 'garden centre' or equivalent and see if you can find a similar bag with a similar red/yellow label

    Sounds most like lime to me, but I'd chuck it. I've bought it like that for growing brassicas, then found soil here is alkaline.

    How big is this bag of white powder.  It could be really valuable in certain quarters!!
