This is a question for @JamesCollier
I am wondering whether it is on the agenda (in the future) to develop a version of either the RTD and / or the Bars so that they do not include chicory root fibre, so as to make them low FODMAP? Is this even possible?
It is fantastic that Huel is gluten free, vegan, and contains no common allergens, to make the products suitable for the majority of the population. But chicory root fibre does cause significant problems for anyone with IBS or intolerance to fructans, even in tiny doses.
At the moment, the powder is the only Huel product that I can tolerate. I can’t have the granola anyway due to the gluten (but I probably wouldn’t bother with a cereal product anyway even if it was gluten free). I would however love to be able to use the Bars as occassional snacks, and the RTD as occassional convenience (plus everyone who has received them today is raving how delicious it is !!)
I think the low FODMAP and / or fructan intolerance does affect quite a lot of people.
Is there any way the products could be developed without the chicory root fibre?
I do know of some other food bars that I tolerate without problems, and I don’t know the science behind needing chicory root fibre in the Huel bars (other than it being a binder) or in the Huel RTD.
Any informative science on the need to include this particular ingredient, and the feasability of developing all Huel products to be low FODMAP in the future, would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance for your time to answer this question
