Huel review and comparison (with Genesis Foods)


#1

Hey guys :slightly_smiling_face:

I just posted a review/comparison of Huel and Genesis Foods for my blog at OPLETE.co [https://oplete.co/huel-vs-genesis-foods-a-tale-of-two-scales/].

I realise some may view this as advertising my blog etc., but I genuinely hope everyone finds the article (and others on OPLETE.co) interesting and useful.

If so, please let me know and I’ll write more :smile: I’d love any other feedback too, so feel free to comment and criticise (constructively).

Interesting read, thanks.

Nice article.

But after reading it maintained and reinforced my Huel preference.

Genesis is on vegan version based on Soy Protein isolate.
For Standard version, on Whey Protein.
The main reason I choose Huel is the absence of both ( before Huel I tasted Jimmy Joy & Queal which had those two ingredients).
Whey protein for obvious reasons, and soy because is one of the most, if not the most extensive culture with highest GMO rate. Difficult to find non-GMO soybeans:

Regarding ketosis ( without a specific diet, or powdered food to attain it ) I think IF ( intermittent fasting ) is also a way of reaching that state.

But all the information is clear. Congrats.

Just going to jump in here.

Firstly, almost all soy sold in the EU is non-GMO, with EU law on GMOs being pretty much the most stringent in the world: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_food_in_Europe

Secondly, there’s no solid evidence at all to show GMOs are harmful, and plenty to show the opposite and that they’ve saved billions of lives.

Finally, I can confirm the soy used in Genesis Foods products is non-GMO.

As for IF and keto, IF can get you into keto briefly, though not for long, and it will be a lesser extent of ketosis than if you follow a ketogenic diet.

Aside from these brief responses though, I’m not going to discuss our products further on this forum as I have agreed with Tim to keep such discussion to an absolute minimum - I’m happy to answer questions or respond to comments like the above where there could simply be a misunderstanding, but I don’t want to market or advertise what we offer above Huel here.

Hello again,

Just wanted to let here three small links on Ukraine soy:

Of course non-GMO is a solution for hunger and food scarcity in the long term and the world overpopulation. But I don´t choose my nutrition based only on that.

All the best for Genesis Food in the meal replacements arena ( to my knowledge the single with a keto diet powder alternative).
