I would be wary of saying the wiki article is proven to be incorrect. To me it appears that the wiki article is sourced mainly from the May 2016 updated nutritional recommendations (updated from the ones in 1968, which are still the basis for NHS and other european health agencies).
Looks to me as if USA/Canada are ahead in terms of how recent the recommendations are.
As much as that maybe the case, Huel is still made using different recommendations and that is why the numbers are different. It’s a British made product, made to EU regulations. What more can they do?
Humans are the same species in UK and in USA/Canada. Therefore, if scientific evidence recommends nutritional values - and this research is newer and performed using more modern methods and observations - then it should apply for both UK and USA/Canada.
Hence looking into what progress USA/Canada are making compared to UK might be a good idea, despite Huel being a UK product.
What @Kizeree said about EU versus U.S./Canada (not about Wikipedia. The wiki page is properly sourced.)
In the same vein, though, that’s why it is silly for Huel to knock Soylent for not having 100% of the U.K.'s RDIs. Apples and oranges. Soylent provides 100% RDI for U.S. and Huel provides 100% RDI for U.K.
It’s interesting that there are different levels set by different parts of the world. Why is this? Do people in different parts of the world have different nutritional requirements? Or are just different criteria used to decide? What is the truth? Surely the truth must be out there, Mulder.
I suspect there is far more variation between individuals than there is between parts of the world taken as a whole. But people are probably going to be far healthier consuming Huel/Soylent/Joylent than eating a lot of the food that people tend to eat these days.
Next time you eat in a restaurant, I dare you to ask the waiter if they know whether your meal will contain a third of all nutritional requirements, and if so, whether those requirements are US, Canadian, British, European, Australian, Ethiopean, or Martian.
Huel contains at least 100% of the of the European Union’s “Daily Recommended Amounts”.
We will have a different vitamin and mineral blend for north America. In some cases they are higher, lower or the same.
Why would it be good to include those on the label? There are a lot of elements which could be shown but there is limited room, why these in particular? This is the first time anyone has asked for this info. Does anyone else list this type of info?
Huel contains 140% of the RDA of fibre.
We can’t list all the elements that are and are not contained in Huel. E.g. amino acids would be useful, but space is an issue. Also all phytonutrients. Does anyone else list this type of info?
