I am looking into huel and i was hoping to be able to take the bars to work as it is not really convient for me to make a shake at work. is this the intended way to use the bars or is it meant to add onto the normal huel usage.
is it not possible for you to pre-make the shake and just store it at work until you intend to consume it? As far as I’m aware, the bars are formulated to the same standards of “nutritional completeness” so I can’t see there being anything wrong with doing this, it’s just that the shake powder is much more cost effective, it gives you twice the nutritional value for the same cost (311 cals/£ for shakes, 145 cals/£ for bars - base cost, no subscription/bulk discounts)
At that kind of cost efficiency even the cost of an extra shaker if you need one, pays for itself pretty quickly compared to the cost of using bars instead
The bar not a replacement per say for the powder. The powder has a better nutritional profile than the bar. This is because you have to compromise somewhat to be able to turn a powder into a solid. The bar still contains a very good macro and micro profile but things like sugar per gram are higher in the bar because sugar helps bind the powder into a solid. Another ingredient in the bar acts as a laxative and for this reason Huel don’t recommend consumption of more than 4 bars a day.
Solutions to your problem might be to weigh out your Huel and take to work in a plastic container so you just need water. Or mix at home and take into work via in an insulated drinking vessel with some ice in.
Absolutely, all Huel products are designed to provide at least 100% of the RI for vitamins and minerals at 2000kcal. However due to the format of each product there are nutritional differences. @Coup gives a good example! @JamesCollier (superstar Huel Nutrition legend) made a spreadsheet, which I’ll screenshot here, that summarises the differences in nutritional value per 100g of each Huel product! Hope it is interesting and useful! These figures are based on EU formulas 2.3, 2.0 and 1.0, respectively.
