Henry’s input can easily be ditched as as superficial rubbish though. The criticisms about taste are completely misplaced as it is overlooked that many flavourings readily available.
“This (Huel) has the highest levels of vitamins and minerals of the products sampled, but also the highest fat and salt content.”
“Dr Mayur Ranchordas, a senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, insists nothing can ever replace food entirely. ‘I think these things are OK once in a while for convenience, say if you’re on a long journey,’ he says. ‘The shakes won’t contain some of the polyphenols [micronutrients in plants] our bodies need.”
I think the reviews are fair. It doesn’t taste amazing. We all know that, that’s not why we use it.
It can’t and shouldn’t replace real food in someone’s diet, I use Huel for around 75% of my calories but still admit these remaining calories are eaten as whole foods to keep me regular and functional. 100% works for some, but not for me. That’s okay. That’s not something we have to argue against.
The fat claim is absurd, fat is a macronutrient like any other, fat doesn’t make you fat, I hate people who claim fat is a bad thing.
WTF they have compared the U/U Huel with flavoured versions of the rivals? That is unfair
U/U tastes horrible, I completely agree that its a 1/5, but it is not fair to compare the U/U with the chocolate version of Soylent for example… Its veeeeeeeeeeeery different. With Vainilla Huel it would have been very different
I told you before… Huel should have a plain/neutral flavour, which is quite difficult to develop
