I’ve been doing some online research about my gut problems and one possible thing could be FODMAPs triggering some kind of IBS-like symptoms.
FODMAPs is an acronym for
- Oligosaccharides (eg. Fructans and Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS))
- Disaccharides (eg. Lactose)
- Monosaccharides (eg. excess Fructose)
- Polyols (eg. Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Xylitol and Isomalt)
This article is pretty good.
Is this something you’d find in Huel?
I’ve been close to 100% Huel for a couple of weeks now and my gas problems were getting out of control.
Today I’ve not had any Huel at all, and now I’ve got no gas problems - my this time of day, after 600g of Huel, it’s usually off the scale!
While on the Huel I was getting about 150 to 200 g of protein a day, where as before, it was more like 50 to 100g. Could that be it?
The bad gas has problem I’ve had since before trying Huel, but the Huel definitely didn’t help and seemed to make things a lot worse.
I’m going to see a Dr in a few weeks but in the meantime, I’d like to still try Huel and not suffer from bad gas problems.
Any nutritional experts here?
