I was wondering if anyone knew where it may be possible to purchase a plastic mixing ball for the Huel shaker bottles? I understand Huel doesn’t currently offer/provide the mixing balls with the bottles, so I am using a wire-ball instead. I would prefer if possible to use a plastic (BPA free) version, but cannot find anywhere in the UK that sells these standalone (i.e. without having to buy a new shaker as well).
Any help with this would be much appreciated.
P.S. Would it be worth considering providing such options as an add-on purchase on the Huel site to accompany the current shaker bottles on offer?
not that it matters, but you will only find BPA in polycarbonates (plastic resin code 7) when its used in rigid food and beverage applications. It’s very unlikely a mixer ball would be made of polycarbonate - more likely they will be made out of ABS.
I’m just thinking back to when I used to use a metal (stainless steel) mug for drinking tea, and I always had a ‘metallic’ like aftertaste when using this mug. I’m not saying I’ve experienced that with just the metal wire ball, but using an alternative might remove that concern.
Can I just make a note here for @Phil_C to explain that there is actually a good reason for purchasing a shaker of a different shape of using a ball to mix. Memory is shot to pieces but something about a rounded base ensuring better mixing… he’ll definitely be able to explain as I recall reading it at the time and understanding it, rare enough, but I just use a blender so not hugely relevant to me.
Worth holding off until he responds tho, I’m certain it was pertinent and he knows his onions on this.
yes - one rounded end = good, both rounded ends = better. round holes and square pegs - that sort of thing thats why without a mixer ball, a bottle like the ShakeSphere is practically useless but with one - makes a very smooth drink - providing you can shake it hard enough
I’m back to the Huel shaker cup with “grill/ice barrier thingy” after trying the ShakeSphere thing. Utter garbage and destined for the bin, so glad I got it on a deal from QVC and didn’t pay the normal, full price.
