Huel and general inflamation


#1

Anybody else see to have issues with huel and inflammation based symptoms ?
When using huel have general joint pain and worse asthma. when not using the huel symptoms dissipate in a day or two. 100 % reproducible.
Ive tried using the gluten free version of huel but that makes no difference. Guess the last attempt is to try the unflavored/unsweetened version with no sweetener. I’m reacting to something in huel just don’t know what.

I’ll be interested to hear if anything is different for you with the unflavoured/unsweetened. Since starting to drink Huel, my asthma has pretty much disappeared. There could be other reasons for it though.

Interesting post


#4

Mine too. :slight_smile:


#5

I am convinced my asthma is linked to IBS. It is much improved since starting on Huel.


#6

Well, that’s the thing… As well as drinking Huel, I pretty much cut wheat and dairy right out of my diet too. And I know that those weren’t good for me.


#7

Me too, almost completely. I have one of my favourite meals of a couple of slices of Danish bread under chopped tomatoes and two poached eggs perhaps once a week now, otherwise no bread at all. No bread means no butter or spread either which is no bad thing. The only cow’s milk I have is a small amount in my tea once or twice a day. I can drink black coffee no problem but don’t like black tea.


#8

I don’t like it either, but I stopped drinking it for a few weeks and then tried it black, and it was not bad…few week later and it’s fine. Soya milk is nice in tea, and Oatly barista too, (in my opinion).


#9

I sometimes have a cup of Earl Grey. No problem with that. I use almond milk on my granola but don’t like it in tea. Soy is a no no for me. Oatly barista I have never tried. Will have a look for it.


#11

Just curious @Africorn how did they effect you?


#12

Oatly B…is now in quite a few major retailers as well as many independent stores. Alas it is quite a bit more expensive than other plant milks.


#13

Bad indigestion which I thought was from wheat, but it turned out to be a reaction to dairy that was causing my digestive system to coat with mucus which was preventing me from digesting wheat and some other grains properly. I haven’t had indigestion / heartburn / acid reflux since I quit dairy. I still don’t eat a lot of grains, mainly because I try to get my carbs rather from non-starchy vegetables.


#14

Found it, thanks. Looks promising. Will get some tomorrow


#15

That’s probably cos milk is for calves not humans. Loads of people have intolerances to it.


#16

Yep. Pity more people aren’t aware of what is causing their digestive issues.


#17

Yeah I blamed wheat for everything but I was also drinking a couple of pints ( sometimes more ) of semi skimmed milk a day. I do feel better not having either of them, I am glad we can mix Huel with water and not milk


#18

Me too! I sometimes put in 100 ml of almond milk, mainly because for some reason it thickens the mix up. No idea how, but it does.


#19

It is the thickeners in the almond milk. Different plant based milks have different strengths (or weaknesses) in that regard. Huel did post an interesting video about it sometime. I would enlighten you but I am currently entertaining a “lady” friend who keeps chatting to me despite my protests.

Oh, here it is, I managed to locate it while waiting for her to finish stuffing her face with cake.
