Anytime I try any product with Sucralose I get horrendous stomach issues. Not just Huel. I switched to Huel Black and had no stomach issues. I recently had a checkup and showed my doctor the product and he said that Huel Black is way too much protein for my size and activity level. I’m guessing my only option if I want to stick with Huel would be to switch to unflavored. Years ago I tried Unsweetened and didn’t care for the taste. Any tips on the best way to flavor Huel Unsweetened without adding calories?
I use 50% U/U with 50% Black
You might also get a second opinion on what is too much, considering if you are using Huel for 100% of your meals or only breakfast/lunch with maybe less protein for dinner…
I was also going to recommend unflavored mixed with Black.
Otherwise maybe find a Stevia-based syrup. I use the premium syrups they use at coffee shops for mine otherwise sometimes I do some sweetener and then cocoa powder or a splash of vanilla flavoring.
Here is (hopefully if it works) a screenshot and a link of the syrups I mentioned:
Nice! Thank you! I’ll try those!
Delicious and zero calorie
(Sure, that means a bit of food science chemicals, but I chose my battles)
This stuff is great. Tried it with the unsweetened and I like it better then. Regular Huel or Huel Black flavors. This is my new way to drink Huel. Thanks for the recommendation!
I have known other people who had allergic reactions to artificial sweeteners. One woman I know had sever stomach problems, and went to numerous doctors and had countless tests, before a doctor said to her, “What is that you’re chewing on?” “Sugarless gum,” she replied. “Aha,” said the doctor.
Personally I hate all artificial sweeteners so I use the UU. I have looked pretty hard to find ways to improve the flavor. I have tried spices, bananas, cocoa powder, sugar, etc. My favorite was miso, but then the recipe changed and that stopped tasting as good. Lately I have been doing OK with Indian spices like curry powder and garam masala. It is not great, but it beats artificial sweeteners.
You could also try the flavor additives that Huel sells. Some of those are pretty good.
