A lot of people experience stomach discomfort and bloating when they first start using Huel but as it seems you’ve been using it a while, I’m not sure what it could be. As you say it is acute pain like food poisoning I would certainly consider contacting the Huel customer team with the batch number to see if they have any other reports and/or consider seeing your doctor to look into the possibility of any other underlying issues.
I’ve been drinking Huel for years now, I usually drink it as soon as I wake up as a pre-workout meal before hitting the gym.
I got a new batch recently (with a new flavour which I never tried: banana). I added half a shake at mid-morning and half a shake at mid-afternoon as snacks, and that’s when it started causing me such pains.
I didn’t change anything else in my diet.
Could it be the new flavour? Does the banana flavour contain anything over other flavours (I’ve tried and used: vanilla, chocolate, chocolate mint, original, coffee)?
I tried a different Huel Flavour from the order I got, and had no problems. Now, how should we proceed?
My mind is in conflict I’d like to try another bag, but also I don’t want to end “wasting” 2 bags of Banana, so I might want to return the one I have for another flavour?
What’s your thoughts?
