Thank you for all your guesses on what Black Edition is. We’ve listened to your feedback and that of many other Hueligan’s over the years and have taken some of the most requested changes and combined them into an alternative Huel: Huel Black Edition.
Huel Black Edition has an alternative macronutritional ratio to Huel Powder and will give more Hueligans flexibility in their day-to-day diet.

- 50% lower carbs
- 33% more protein (40g protein per serving)

- <5g sugar per serving*
- kombucha for B-vitamins
- added probiotics
- green tea extract for polyphenol antioxidants

- plus all the other great things you’d expect from Huel, eg all 26 vitamins and minerals, high in omega-3s, high fibre, low sugar (less than 5% sugar), phytonutrients; like all Huel products, Huel Black Edition is nutritionally complete at 2,000 calories and each meal contains the right amounts of essential nutrients.
Some of our biggest requests are around a reduced carb version of Huel and this version has a macronutrient ratio of 17:40:40:3 (carbs:fat:protein:fibre). This is genuinely our most requested Huel ever and we’re so excited to release it.
Add two scoops of Huel Black Edition (90g) to water in a shaker, shake well and consume.
*Please note: there was a printing error in the booklets, incorrectly giving the sugar content as 9g; the level is <5g per serving
Why there’s no kelp in Black Edition
You might be wondering why Black doesn’t contain Kelp. We wanted to give you a little more backstory about kelp.
We’ve removed kelp from Black Edition based on feedback from Hueligans here about its inclusion in v3.0
We are seriously considering removing it from v3.0 in time, but nothing is confirmed yet
The reason kelp was included is that we needed a source of natural iodine to sell Huel directly in Japan. Kelp was, and still is, a great solution for this.
The intention was always to get a source with no risk of contamination, which as you’ve pointed out does exist; however, this has proven difficult to source and was not possible further down the line.
