Hi, i’ve seen related topics on nutrition of Flaxseed. I’m asking here about whether I’m receiving any nutrients from flaxseed in Huel Hot&Spicy at all.
I love H&S flavor but i’m concerned if the claimed nutrients, largely supplied by flaxseed (among the first 3 ingredients in all H&S flavors), can’t actually be used by the body due to flaxseed indigestion.
Speaking from consuming multiple servings of Huel H&S over the past week, I do observe large amount of undigested flaxseed in my bowel discharge. The seeds remain intact. This is not speculating, but this is real observation.
One could argue that I should chew the food more thoroughly. That’s a valid point. I did try but I still find significant amount of them unprocessed (intact seeds). I tried to put Huel in microwave for 10+ minutes, in the hope that prolonged heat would rupture open the flaxseed shells. However, this does not help.
Do people have similar experience on whole flaxseed in H&S products. How can I get more nutrients out of it. Are there plans by Huel to use ground flaxseed for subsequent versions?
