Thoughts on Huel
One serving is three scoops, which equates to one cup of powder. That serving has 500 calories: 37 grams of protein, 47 grams of carbohydrates (9 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugar), and 16 grams of fat (3 grams of saturated fat, no cholesterol).
When it comes to the vitamins and minerals, I was super impressed by the spread. If you include sodium there are 28 vitamins and minerals here, providing everything from Vitamin A to zinc, plus a lot of nutrients that are often left off of meal replacement shakes like Vitamin K, chromium, choline, and chloride. In one serving you’ll get 25 percent of most of the nutrients, with some coming in higher: there’s 40% of your magnesium, 70% of your selenium, 80% of your Vitamin C, and a few others get higher dosing as well.
Besides the lengthy vitamin and mineral blend, the ingredients here are pretty simple: oats, pea protein, flaxseed, brown rice protein, medium chain triglycerides (from coconut), sunflower oil powder, artificial vanilla flavoring, stevia, sucralose (an artificial sweetener also called Splenda®) and three kinds of gum: xanthan, acacia, and guar.
It’s worth pointing out that all these ingredients are vegan. Remember that this product is also available in unflavored and gluten free versions.
