Salty flavour

Hello everybody. I’ve been using huel since 1 month and I feel good with it. Just one question… what about a salty flavour? Yeah ok it’s a vegan and healty product but all flavours are sweets…

Agreed! There might be some ideas here on how to turn the unflavoured version into savoury meals

If it’s salty flavour it may be a good thing for me to encourage me to drink more water!

For savoury flavours your only choice is but it is nutritionnaly (much ?) less interesting than huel

I put nutritional yeast in my lunch U/U Huel today. I feel mixed about it. It was a nice flavour but it wasn’t the right sensation in my mouth as it was cold. I want to keep playing with it though. Some of the recipes look interesting. Maybe slightly warmer would be better for savoury.

@Catty has the right idea with making warm savoury recipes.
I mix the UU Huel in a blender with minimal cold water (100-200mls) to retain nutrients, then mix the savoury flavours in hot water, then combine the two. The result is warm Huel but without any degradation of nutrients (which would happen if you added boiling water or if you cooked it).

I’ve had success with
-Spicy tomato
-Golden milk (plant milk plus turmeric and chai spices)
-Spiced butternut squash soup

Have you tried adding warm salted water to the UU mix?

Nice joke… Actually, I don’t think it helps hahahaha
I don’t want to offend vegan people, but if Huel made a flavoured powder or a flavour boost like… for exemple… chicken or bacon lol I’d try it.

Salty is not the word you wanted to use
C’est une mauvais traduction du français

What you ment is savoury

You have also Vitaline (both french), but with less options. I would also say that their savoury flavour is not for everybody, it is very soup like.

I think Kuik has other savoury flavours boosts, too.

I’m not french… Anyway I’m not looking for other brands. I just wanted to say that I’ve been using huel since a month and the only thing sometimes I miss is a nice pasta dish or a juicy hamburger. I stop huel once a week but it’s not enough hahahaha

Where are you from?

OK. Here are some options.

Easiest- Huel Soups.
General idea is to make a soup and add Huel to it. Soups are usually very nutritious but low in calories, so the idea is to use Huel to add up the extra calories and nutritents.

I choose Huel because I work the entire day and I don’t have neither the time nor a kitchen to do all that. My question was if someone else would like a “SAVOURY” flavour like me. Nothing else.

No, I wouldn’t want a flavour as salty as you.

As of April I work close to the KFC and there is the “Bucket Tuesday” which is some
hotwings and crispy strips, a large chicken popcorn, 2 medium fries and 2 medium drinks.
On Tuesday, €10,- instead of €20,- .
Still haven’t went, might do so soon enough :joy:
It’s a dangerous thing, I guess.

Ha-ha-ha-ha. You’re not helping.
