Will there ever be a plant based, low carb, healthier alternative to the current Huel products without flaxseed? If not can you recommend a competing such product?
I know the negative side effects of flaxseeds are a sensitive subject in the Huel community and I don’t have the expertise to determine which scientific results to trust.
Still I think you should consider the commercial aspects of exchanging flaxseeds with something that is not said to affect cyanide or testosterone levels.
Also I think you should make the ingrediense list easier to access and explain all ingredienses that are not natural. Also the word “aroma” is a red light for me, because it’s sometimes used as a code word for unhealthy ingredienses that can affect the brain in a negative way.
If you look in Articles section of the Guides & Articles page - there are many articles explaining all the ingredients, how they are produced and why they were selected. There is also a full nutritional profile for each product on its own product page in the main sites store.
I wonder about flaxseed myself–the powder bugs my stomach if I have it more than two meals in a row, but the hot & savory is okay as long as I let the brown seeds fall to the bottom of the soup. I have no idea about cyanide or testosterone, but the occasional stomach fuss aside I feel better on Huel than I do on regular food. It’s not fiber itself that bugs me–I just ate a half cup of cooked barley with no problems.
The ingredients are here on the site–do you need a link?
