The consistency of the powder means that the mass of each scoop varies A LOT! Which got me thinking… Why not have the amounts marked on the opposite side of the bottle from the liquid measures? (I now weigh it out.)
I bought Huel because I’m always in a rush… The bottle doesn’t fit in the bottle holder in car - would be a nice perk!
At the traffic lights I decided to take a quick swig, held open the lid on its boomerang strip… If you’re wondering, Huel doesn’t sting if you get a rather generous portion in your eye!
AND… To top it all off, I chose the plain, unsweetened version hoping that my 13 year old son would be repulsed by it… He didn’t mind it, even after I added two heaped scoops of instant coffee to the mix - gotta get my caffeine fix in there somewhere!
Glad you’re enjoying Huel. 2 answers to your questions:
The reason the amount varies is because Huel contains air. This would also cause the measure if placed on the bottle to be as inaccurate as the scoops. The only way to be accurate is to weigh the product which is what most pro-Huelers do.
I believe this was mentioned before but there is (or at least was a few years ago) no standard for car bottle holder size. The size of a can would fit but I am not sure if a shaker that narrow would have drawbacks elsewhere like mixability or having to make it a lot taller. Some people have 120g of Huel and 600ml of water.
Another way to get your caffeine fix would be to add a big teaspoon of Cacao powder. This is what I do if I want a morning Huel with some caffeine.
