Huel (Original) the UK's leading nutritionally complete food v1.2
Important notice: This is an former version of Huel, which we have revised into Huel v2.1. All stock is well within date, but it will not have a year long shelf life left like it would if you purchased v2.1, as they were created earlier in 2016. We have a limited number of Huel v1.2, so cannot say how long it will last.
Free shaker and t-shirt: With your first order of Huel (except the 100 gram sample size) you will receive a free shaker and t-shirt.
Huel is a nutritionally complete powdered food. It's been formulated by a renowned nutrition expert to include the perfect balance of carbs, fat and protein and all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. You can replace all your food with Huel, but most will only replace one or two of their meals. It's made from real food (Oats, Brown Rice, Pea, Flaxseed, Sunflower and MCTs from Coconut) which has been turned into a powder for convenience. The result is a surprisingly cheap, time saving, environmentally friendly, simple, and humane (100% vegan) food.
Huel provides at least 100% of the UK Government's 'Reference Nutrient Intakes' and the European Union's 'Daily Recommended Amount'.
Huel has been approved by a Registered Dietitian.
“Huel is a nutritionally complete product and is therefore a suitable option for a meal replacement. In addition to all essential vitamins and minerals, it also contains a good fatty acid profile including omega-3, monounsaturated fat and middle chain triglycerides. Furthermore, Huel meets the recommended intake for fibre provided the consumer meets their full calorie requirement with Huel”
Rachel Clare BSc (Hons), Registered Dietitian.
Huel v1.2 is:
- 100% vegan
- High in protein - 150g per 2000 calories
- High in fibre - 35g per 2000 calories (140% of the RDA)
- Very low in sugar - 3.4g per 2000 calories, less than a teaspoon
- Nutritionally complete - provide at least 100% of the RDA for all 26 essential vitamins and minerals
- Low GI
- Huel contains: No added sugar, no meat or animal products, no soy, making it suitable for those with even the most complex dietary requirements.
Huel now comes in two flavours Vanilla and Unflavoured & Unsweetened.
The Vanilla is our original flavour, it has an oaty and light vanilla taste. After extensive testing and custom demand we recently reduced the strength of the flavour and sweetness. This slightly less sweet version is more mellow and more flexible. I.e. you can customise it with different flavours more easily if you desire, although we believe it tastes surprisingly good straight up.
Unflavoured & Unsweetened
Also due to customer demand we have launched an Unflavoured & Unsweetened version. This version does have a chalky and earthy taste which is certainly not to everyone's liking. Most people will need to add a flavour (sweet or savoury) and/or sweetener. If you intend to try Huel for the first time we suggest you start with Vanilla, it's far tastier and requires no additional sweetener or flavour.The good news is that this version is totally customisable and does open the possibility of a savoury Huel. Some ideas include - curry, fruit, vegetable stock, etc. You will find some more ideas here: How to add extra flavours.
Pouches of Huel flavours and sweeteners - Huel has developed a range of delicious flavours - Strawberry, Mocha, Toffee, Rhubarb and Custard, Pineapple and Coconut, Banana and Chocolate. These are designed to work with both Vanilla Huel and our Unflavoured & Unsweetened version. These flavour pouches use natural flavours and a natural sweetener (Stevia) and cost approximately 11 pence per use. See the Huel flavour pouches here.Who devised the Huel Formula

"I am really pleased with it ! So easy to use, the taste is great, and I have not felt hungry.
I am getting on brilliantly with Huel for weight loss....started 17th July at 17 stone, now, at 2 weeks I am at 16 stone 8 lbs, which I am delighted at."

"Nearly three weeks on Huel, and I just love it, I'm losing weight, not hungry, and feeling so much better! I eat a meal when I fancy it, but otherwise stick to Huel, it is perfect for me - thank you."
Matt Phillips - Source: Radio 4
"I found the convenience really quite useful and health definitely comes into play. Being able to receive your week’s food / shopping, if you will, in one box that just gets delivered to you and contains very little waste, is good for everybody involved.
The benefit of actually eating healthily rather than unhealthily, as a side effect, is a great one. I feel more alert, a bit more awake, and I've noticed an improvement in my skin. I've noticed an improvement in my general well-being. When you eat a real meal, it’s very easy to overeat, but because you’re eating a prescribed amount with these products, you feel really sated; you feel that you've eaten, you feel healthy, but you don’t feel that bloated awkwardness that you can easily get by simply eating too much."
Patrick D'Arcy - Customer Feedback Survey
"Huel has genuinely changed my life. I get to eat healthy, eat ethically, and save money. Unless you're a real foodie, its hard for me to imagine a reason you wouldn't at least replace breakfast with Huel."full delivery info here
Next day delivery is FREE to all UK mainland addresses. If you order before 2pm it will be delivered the next working day. We don't pick and pack at the weekend, so if you order then it will be picked and packed on Monday and delivered on Tues.
Please note: The days quoted below are estimated working days (Monday to Friday). Whilst we subsidise the delivery charges for both the flavour/sample pouches and Huel, we subsidise the costs of the flavour/sample pouches less than Huel. This means often it will be cheaper to order the flavour pouches with your Huel, as they’ll be included in the delivery cost of the Huel itself.

Cautions and Allergen Advice
Huel is suitable for vegans, GMO-free 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.
Please consult your doctor before using Huel if you have a medical condition that requires dietary intervention or are on any medication that may interact with specific nutrients. See further details here.
