Sodium fluoride

the vote was clearly no and yet you have added it… why?

They have removed it from version 2.1 Do you want Sodium Fluoride to be added to Huel? (poll inside)

The vote happened right after they added the sodium fluoride, not before.

Linear time can be so frustrating.


It can be. I’ve heard there is going to be a new soylent product called Huel launched soon…that sounds exciting.

Huel v2.1 is now available for purchase.

This version has had sodium fluoride removed.

well… i don’t use fluoridated tooth paste and my water supply is fluoride free… i keep it out of my body as much as possible simply for the last 20 years because its a neurotoxin( even toothpaste is not intended to be swollowed and if you do your ment to seek medical advise never mind eating the crap)… When my partner bought Huel as a vegan option for our vegan lifestyle i didnt think i would be getting poisoned by it,iv been feeling like crap every time iv taken Huel and even started taking it bi-daily and couldnt think why i was feeling so rough and was even thinking of stopping it but know i know i was being medicated against my will as no where does it state that its has fluoride in it unless you squint through the fine print on the back thats almost impossible on a screen
but even reading the forum when you asked to vote it was rejected by 85%…
so sadly i and my partner wont be buying this crap again…and the half bag is going straight in the bin,what a waste of money

In case you reconsider, Huel v2.1 no longer contains fluoride.

hi …sadly i have no confidence it the brand as 85% said no and then we learn that it was already included and not clearly advertised as such but. why does Huel think sodium fluoride was a necessary ingredient for teeth (even dentists say anyone over 14 should not have fluoride) and yet its in toothpaste and some water, why do they think we need it in our food also…?

@whatnofish There are a few reasons why:

  • Fluoride is one of the 27 vitamins & minerals for which the EU provide a recommended daily intake, Huel already contains all the other 26
  • Fluoride can help prevent cavities
  • We sell to over 30+ countries
  • Not everyone has access to fluoridated water “Out of a population of about three-quarters of a billion, under 14 million people (approximately a mere 2%) in Europe receive artificially-fluoridated water. Those people are in the UK (5,797,000), Republic of Ireland (3,250,000), Spain (4,250,000), and Serbia (300,000).”
  • Some people will not use / have access to toothpaste which contains fluoride
  • “National and international health agencies and dental associations throughout the world have endorsed water fluoridation as safe and effective.”

So in summary it’s tricky. Some Huel customers will not need fluoride from Huel as they will get it from tap water and/or toothpaste, but others will, e.g. in the UK only 5.8m receive fluoridated water (some also get natural fluoridated water but it’s not clear how many do).


To be fair, most people when buying something to consume for all of their meals will look at the ingredients information, which is available on their site so you can zoom in. It would have said fluoride was included.


thank you for your reply…
but by including fluoride to those who already receive it you where putting them at risk of fluoride poisoning

“Early symptoms of fluoride poisoning include gastrointestinal pain, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. The minimum dose that can produce these symptoms is estimated to be 0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg of fluoride (i.e., 0.1 to 0.3 milligrams of fluoride for every kilogram of bodyweight)”

i notice lots of people felt fuzzy (as i do myself)
headed while taking huel

why not just state clearly contains fluoride on the bag.and giving your customers choice

i always look at labels to see whats in what i consume and yet myself and my partner both missed it, so clearly not very clearly marked,even toothpaste has it clearly marked.

It was as clearly marked as all of the other ingredients on the label.

Where did you get this info from?

The ingredients list is clearly marked on the homepage, nutritional page, product page and on the pouch.

looking through the forum a few people complain about cotton wool or of being fuzzy/foggy headed… i have been getting it since taking huel. i thought it must be my body detoxing as it feels like the very first stage of a cold (without the snot and sniffles)…

other people have been asking about foggy head on this forum

When you read through that entire thread, the issue was resolved by increasing calories (through an increase in Huel) and taking a Vitamin B supplement. The person wasn’t sure which action fixed the problem, but presumably if fluoride was at fault, increasing Huel (and thus fluoride) would have made it worse.


Trolls never die. They open new accounts, again and again.
Fear, uncertainty, doubt. Lies and false allegations…
Welcome, @whatnofish!

The changes to 2.0 were clearly advertised on our product page, forum, home-page, labelling and newsletter. Furthermore, the quantities of fluoride are entirely undangerous, even when combined with fluoridated water and/or fluoride-based toothpastes. Regardless, we evaluated the concerns raised by the Huel community and setup a forum poll about it’s removal. Since then we have fast-tracked our development of Huel 2.1 in order to remove fluoride from our product sooner. As an alternative we made Huel 1.2 available through our website at a discounted rate for Huelers who are unable to consume 2.0 due to a strong stance against fluoride.

We have recently launched 2.1 with the principal change being the removal of fluoride.

Thanks for your reply…
As someone who was new to huel(we only bought our first batch 3 weeks ago) I and my partner watched many many videos about huel and didn’t see anything remotely mentioning of fluoride being added…
But since stopping huel my headaches/brain fog has cleared up and I feel great again…
