I’ve been a Huel Black user for six weeks and have experienced chronic, low-grade diarrhea the entire time. I stopped using it two weeks ago and my symptoms cleared up in about five days and I’ve been “normal” ever since.
A bit more detail: the diarrhea wasn’t explosive, run to the bathroom, flowing out of me like lava type stuff. Instead it was more like what you might call “loose stool,” and included going poop two or three times in a single morning. I was also gassy at night (stinky farts).
I was having 3 scoops of Huel Black (vanilla) for lunch every day, made with 24 oz of water. I really love everything about Huel so this has been really disappointing. I’ve seen on this forum the suggestion that people try digestive enzymes so my next step is to give that a shot. I don’t know if the issue is the fiber content, the probiotics, or some other ingredient that I don’t tolerate well. I wonder whether I could try isolating the probiotics as a factor by baking the Huel somehow- would that kill any probiotics that are included in the formula?
Anyway, I’m writing mostly to share and solicit feedback if anyone has advice. I’ll update this thread as I try different things!
