Continuing the discussion from How do you flavour your Huel?: I’ve read a couple of articles about how coffee/caffeine interfere with nutrient absorption. It’s reccomended that we wait for 30-45 minutes or so after a meal before drinking a coffee for example. Anyone familiar with this stuff?
Also, keep in mind that Huel provides a more complete nutritional profile than probably anything you or I ever consumed beforehand. So the most extreme example: caffeine can reduce iron absorption by 80%. If you break down Huel in four meals and have coffee with the first meal you would lose 20% of your total iron RDI.
The point being, you still ingest 80% of your RDI of iron, which is 1) fine, and 2) probably more than you were getting before Huel.
(Iron is, by far, the most extreme “possible loss,”)
