Astroturfing Thread

I had been taking Huel Greens every morning for about 2 months with no issues. Then I came down with that horrid stomach bug and was sick for over a week. Once I recovered (2 weeks) I took my greens and within 3 hours I was vomiting and sick for 12 hours. I waited a month and tried again last week. Again. 2 1/2 hours I was vomiting and diarrhea for several hours and sick for 24 hours eating saltines and Ginger Ale.
Does anyone have any clue as to what is in the greens that I can’t tolerate? I’m good with veggies and fiber, caffeine and I take a good multivitamin with every am on an empty stomach with no issues.

Thank you!

Since Huel Greens only launched today in the UK we haven’t yet been shitting through the eye of the needle. Hopefully my order will arrive in the next day or two and I will have the needles prepared by then.

You could perhaps ask on the US Huel forum rather than this one.

Really sorry to hear this! Please could you reach out to our support line on this (, and if you pop ‘FAO Amy’ in the header, I’ll be sure to pick it up.

I’ve been taking greens for about a week but today i took it the same as i always do and as instructed but have been been sick all day and unable to keep anything down. I dont know if it is because i had the greens on there own without having eaten anything before but i have been unable to keep down any food all day. I’m really disappointed as i really wanted it to work but im not sure I’ll be able to stomach it again without feeling sick following this. Any help appreciated.

Hi, I never puke, but this week about 1 hour after taking HDG, I violently puked up. Didn’t think it was HSG that caused it so I stupidly took some again this morning. 1 hour later I was screaming into the toilet bowl.

I think HUEL have a problem with this product.

Oh this isn’t ideal at all!

Can you please drop us an email at so we can look into this for you? :heart:

Hey, I had a similar experience: was taking Huel Daily Greens consistently for a couple of weeks with no issues. Then out of the blue, nausea and then pretty sudden, violent vomiting.

Thought it might have just been an off day, that maybe I didn’t drink it quickly enough or eat enough food, so tried it again a couple of days later with unfortunately the same result.

Yet my partner has been using the same batch with no issues.
I’ve had no other problems with any other Huel product. I have the A-Z vitamin drink daily - but not when I was trying the greens.

So sorry to hear this, Rachel. If you haven’t already, please reach out to us via email at so that we can support further :black_heart:

Unfortunately, very similar experience!! Was drinking HDG for a few days, then had terrible acute sickness & diarrhoea! Didn’t initially relate it to HDG, but stopped drinking it for a week as I was away for a few days.

Drank it again today, felt completely well beforehand, and almost identically to the first episode, have had chronic sickness and diarrhoea. On both occasions almost exactly 2 hours after drinking, very quick onset and very unpleasant, subsiding after about 24 hours!

No more for me!

Yes same issue today after taking it every few days for 2-3 weeks approximately.

Had stomach pains and bad wind each time then today feel extremely unwell, dizzy and nauseous then been sick a number of times.

Seen a lot of posts on Reddit about this and now here.

I have contacted Huel via email as stated below in replies.

Huel need to address this. If it has been happening in America before launching here in the UK why are there no warnings on the packaging? Just my opinion.

Not good!!

There’s something very … intriguing about the last three posts by brand-new members; the length, sentence structure and language relating to the claims made all seem rather similar… :face_with_monocle:
