Huel: The Formula Explained

This explanation was written by James Collier BSc (Hons), Registered Nutritionist, who devised the Huel formula. He has over 25 years of experience working in nutrition and dietetics, including 7 years as a Clinical Dietician in the NHS. Covering an array of clinical areas, he worked with people with a wide range of ailments and food intolerances. He also has an Honors Degree in Nutrition with Dietetics.

Huel is more than complete nutrition. Not only does Huel meet the US 'Daily Values' (DV) for all macro- and micronutrients, but it provides a sustained source of energy and has a wealth of other benefits. The DV is what’s accepted as enough of each nutrient to cover most of the population: it’s essentially the recommended daily amount. But there’s a lot more to Huel than just meeting the DV. Here’s why the Huel formula is optimal nutrition…

Huel is 37:30:30:3 Macro Split

The principle macronutrients that we obtain energy from food are carbohydrate, fat, protein and fiber. In Huel we’ve set them at the ratio of 37:30:30:3 respectively; 37% of the energy comes from carbohydrate, 30% from fat, 30% from protein and 3% from fiber. 

Amino acids are the most basic units of protein. Several amino acids are essential for life with others being crucial for good health, so any diet has to contain a significant amount of protein. There are also fatty acids that are essential for life and good health, so including sources of fat is crucial too. Carbohydrates, however, are not essential per se, but they do have significant benefits to sustaining even energy levels and are significantly cheaper, helping to make Huel more affordable.

We’ve designed Huel at these ratios as they are not only within the parameters of the healthy eating guidelines, but also are levels designed for optimum, sustained energy release while covering macronutritional requirements for disease prevention. Fats are more energy dense than protein or carbs, so including them at 30% means there’s less powder and bulk, making Huel easier to consume to meet your energy requirements.

Fine Powdered Oats for Carbohydrates and More

The carbs in Huel are from ultra-fine powdered oats. Oats have been shown to have a low glycemic index (GI); GI refers to how long it takes between ingesting a carb source to the resulting rise in blood sugar and, hence, energy levels. The oats in Huel mix easily and help sustain energy levels until the next meal. Many of the formulas used in sports nutrition or for weight reduction use maltodextrin as the main carb source. Maltodextrin is cheap and easy to mix, so there’s a valid reason for its use. However, although it’s a ‘complex’ carb, it actually has a high GI, so these formulas provide a surge of energy followed by a slump: far from ideal for busy people with active jobs. Maltodextrin is also a synthetic carb, so provides nothing more than carbohydrate for energy. The oat powder in Huel has been milled so fine that it’s readily soluble and there’s also not a huge price difference from maltodextrin. Plus, as oats are natural, they provide so much more than just carbohydrate: many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients too. Indeed, it could be said that the inclusion of oat powder is one of the main reasons why Huel could be considered superior to many foods readily consumed today.

Fats: Flaxseed, Sunflower, and Coconut

The fats in Huel provide 30% of the total energy and are made up of flaxseed and sunflower seeds to ensure that the essential fatty acids are included in optimum amounts. We’ve also included coconut for very good reasons: the fats in coconut are what are known as medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs, and these are treated much like carbs. They provide an energy-rich, sustained fuel and are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles. But MCTs have another invaluable quality: they are not susceptible to oxidation and rancidity, meaning that they do not contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In short, MCTs from coconut are a healthy and efficient source of energy.

There are two completely essential fatty acids (EFAs) that humans require: linoleic acid (LA – an omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha linolenic acid (ALA – an omega-3). Using our blend of flaxseed and sunflower oil powder, we’ve ensured Huel contains sufficient amounts of both of these EFAs as well as other omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Moreover, these natural seed powders provide antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals in a biochemical redox balance to help minimize free-radical production. Free radicals may be involved in the pathology of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and aging, so it’s desirable to keep their formation to a minimum. This is the role of antioxidants.

Why Huel is High in Protein

The DV for protein is around 50g per day, but this only covers our very basic needs and prevents protein deficiency. The Western diet typically provides more, and Huel does too. All essential amino acids are included in adequate amounts from two vegan protein sources: pea and rice protein, as well as protein from the oat powder. Based on an average 2,000 calorie intake, you’ll be consuming 143g protein per day from Huel: this provides a good amount for optimal health as well as building and maintaining a healthy body. Furthermore, protein is more satiating (appetite suppressing) than other macronutrients and we've designed Huel to stop unwanted hunger pangs.

Vitamins and Minerals in Huel

A bulk of the vitamins and minerals – also known as micronutrients – in Huel are from natural ingredients. However, in order to meet the demands of a Western lifestyle, we've added a unique vitamin and mineral formula to provide, in some cases, more than 100% of the recommended amounts.

There have been numerous studies in the past 20 years demonstrating that, for many micronutrients, levels higher than the DV may have beneficial effects to health.

For example, it’s widely considered that the amount of vitamin C we’re recommended to consume is too low, so we've reflected this in the Huel formula. Benefits of consuming more vitamin C include a healthy immune system, healthy skin, and antioxidant properties.

With some of the trace elements the levels are far higher than the recommended amounts. This is because we only need tiny amounts of them, but the natural ingredients in Huel are a rich source.

Choline is a conditionally essential B vitamin and although, strictly speaking, it can be synthesized in our bodies, it’s more efficient to obtain it from our diets. It’s of particular importance for post-menopausal women. As Huel is all about optimum health, the inclusion of choline was felt fundamental.

There has been some concern about phytic acid: a naturally occurring substance in some cereals including oats. Phytic acid can chelate (bind) some minerals, meaning that they’re less bioavailable. As oat powder is a fundamental ingredient of Huel, we've ensured the levels of some minerals, like iron, are higher to accommodate any issues with phytic acid chelation.

Huel is High in Fiber

Huel contains 158% of the recommended daily amount of fiber. The fiber in Huel is a mixture of soluble and insoluble forms all naturally supplied from the food ingredients, mainly from oats and flaxseed, and provides more than most modern solid diets. The high fiber content of Huel helps to ensure the formation of normal, solid stools in healthy users.

Fiber acts like a sponge, so it’s important to consume lots of water when using Huel (1). The Huel formula has been designed to maintain optimum digestive system health. Moreover, you may well have heard about the beneficial soluble fiber in oats called beta-glucan; well, Huel is loaded with this cholesterol-lowering fiber; ideal for a healthy heart (2).

Phytonutrients in Huel

Phytonutrients are substances found in plant foods which, whilst not essential, may exhibit some health benefits like disease risk prevention. Junk food diets and many synthetic liquid diets that aren’t based on real food are deficient in phytonutrients and thus consumers miss out on invaluable health benefits and antioxidant effects.

Because Huel’s fundamental ingredients are plant-based foods, these are already phytonutrient-rich and the benefits are passed onto anyone consuming Huel.  However, we've also added some additional phytonutrients to optimize the Huel formula and to complement the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E and selenium.

Phytonutrient polyphenols in Huel have antioxidant activity and help protect against cardiovascular disease, some cancers and age related conditions. Huel's beneficial phytonutrients include:

  • Avenanthramides are antioxidant polyphenols unique to oats shown to have anti-inflammatory effects (3).
  • Ferulic acid, also from oats, a potent antioxidant and antibacterial agent and has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties (4).
  • Lycopene has been added as it's a potent antioxidant and has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers (7).
  • Lutein: from the flaxseed powder and we've also added additional lutein in our vitamin and mineral blend. Although not essential, there is concern that diets low in lutein may lead to macular degeneration of the eye in the elderly, as lutein is involved in eye pigment development (7, 8). Lutein is also an antioxidant.
  • Zeaxanthin: another antioxidant, this has been added as it also has a role in long-term eye health (8).

Summary - Huel is Food

As you can see, Huel is far superior nutrition to most conventional diets. Huel can be your sole nutritional source, or you can drink it as individual meals or even as a between-meal snack. In this way it can be an add-on improvement to your diet to ensure you’re giving your body what it needs.

Amino Acid Profile of Huel

Protein is made up of amino acids. There are over 500 amino acids in nature, 20 of which are known as the standard amino acids as these are the ones that are coded genetically and are subsequently involved in primary protein synthesis in animals. Of these 20, nine are essential as they cannot be synthesized from other amino acids.

The nine essential amino acids are:

  • Histidine 
  • Isoleucine 
  • Leucine 
  • Lysine 
  • Methionine 
  • Phenylalanine 
  • Threonine 
  • Tryptophan 
  • Valine

The other eleven are:

  • Alanine
  • Ariginine
  • Asparagine
  • Aspartic acid
  • Cysteine
  • Glutamine
  • Glutamic acid
  • Glycine
  • Proline
  • Serine
  • Tyrosine

All protein sources are not equal: some are classed as “complete proteins” and some are not. A complete protein is one that contains sufficient quantities of all nine essential amino acids.

Generally, proteins derived from animal foods (meats, fish, poultry, milk and eggs) are complete. Indeed, some proteins derived from plant foods (legumes, seeds, grains, and vegetables) are often complete as well. Examples include chickpeas, black beans, pumpkin seeds, cashews, cauliflower, quinoa, pistachios, turnip greens, black-eyed peas and soy. Many plant foods have insufficient amounts of one or more of the essential amino acids. Some are notably low, such as corn protein, which is low in lysine and isoleucine.

The protein in Huel comes from five of the main six ingredients: pea protein, oats, brown rice protein, flaxseed, and MCT powder. This ensures a good range of all amino acids and that there’s sufficient amounts of the essential amino acids. Rice protein is high in the sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, plus contains good amounts of all the others, but is very low in lysine. Pea protein is low in cysteine and methionine but high in lysine. This is why we selected these two sources, ensuring everything was covered while keeping Huel vegan. Plus there’s additional protein from the MCT powder, the flaxseeds, and the oats, which are reasonably high in all essential aminos.

Additional Nutrition Notes

Manganese in Huel

Manganese is an essential trace element; it’s needed for good health but we only need tiny amounts. The amount of manganese in Huel is notably higher than the recommended daily amount and some people have asked if the larger amount could be toxic.

Manganese is a toxic mineral, but all reports of toxicity come from inhalation of manganese in industry and mining where there has been damage to the lungs. Nutritionally, manganese is one of the least toxic of all elements because, when excess is consumed, absorption is very low and that which is absorbed is efficiently excreted via bile and the kidneys (9, 10).

There is limited evidence that intakes of water high in manganese may be associated with neurological symptoms, but this has only occurred in areas where the drinking water was contaminated with manganese. Plus, manganese in drinking water is a lot more bioavailable than that in food.

There has never been a reported case of anyone consuming too much manganese from food and there is no evidence that the consumption of a manganese-rich plant-based diet, as in the case of Huel, results in manganese toxicity (10). The only caution is in people who suffer from chronic liver disease who should consult their doctor before consuming Huel.

Huel and FODMAP

FODMAP are short chain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed and consequently ferment so can be irritant to some people's intestines.  Huel is low in FODMAP constituents so is suitable for people who follow a low FODMAP diet. Read more here.

Cautions and Allergen Advice

Huel is food, therefore it is suitable for people with most conditions. However, as some conditions require dietary intervention, like with any food, please heed the notes below for the following conditions:

  • Diabetes mellitus - Huel is suitable for type 1 and type 2 diabetics.  As with all food, if you're using medication to help control your diabetes you should structure your intake of Huel appropriately.
  • Celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis - the oats used in Huel powder are not gluten-free, so we suggest caution. Also, Huel is not suitable for individuals with very sensitive gluten intolerance. Gluten-Free is available.
  • Inborn errors of metabolism - if you have a glycogen storage disorder (GSD) or other inborn error of metabolism where you require dietary manipulation, you must consult your doctor or specialist clinician before using Huel.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease - if you suffer from Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or proctitis, and are experiencing a flare-up, we advise caution when using Huel. However, if you’re in remission, Huel may actually be beneficial.
  • Pregnancy & lactation - Huel is fine to use during pregnancy and for nursing/lactating mothers, but it should not be the sole source of nutrition as there are different nutritional requirements during this period.
  • Children - Huel is not suitable for children under 4 years of age. However, older children may include Huel as part of a balanced diet that includes a variety of other foods, but Huel should not be their sole source of nutrition as they have different nutritional requirements to adults; for more information see Children, Adolescents, and Huel.
  • Eating disorders - Huel may be consumed by individuals with anorexia or bulimia nervosa as a useful source of complete nutrition. However, we recommend that individuals with eating disorders only use Huel after discussing it with their doctor or relevant clinician.

Huel is not suitable for those who suffer from phenylketonuria (PKU).

Medication Interactions

Huel is fine to consume if you’re using most medication.  Although there are no obvious reasons why Huel should be an issue, there may be specific drug-nutrient interactions relating to a particular medicine you're using, so we recommend you read the drug information provided with your prescription. If you have any further concerns, please discuss them with your doctor.

Allergen Advice

Huel is 100% vegan and free from most potential allergens. However, the oats used in Huel may also contain traces of wheat, rye, and barley and are therefore not registered as gluten-free.

Huel (Gluten free) is 100% vegan and free from most potential allergens, including gluten.
