Green Tea Extract hazard?

I’m interested in Huel Black but concerned about the green tea extract. This ingredient has some well documented liver toxicity concerns.

Those studies indicate problems if green tea extract is consumed in very large quantities…the levels you would get in massively consuming supplements over a long period of time. I’m not sure how much is in a serving of Huel…but I suspect it is minuscule. Still; I would be interested in knowing just how much green tea extract is included in the formula.


The studies you linked both say it’s safe if taken with food. Since huel is food I see no problem.

Thanks for sharing. @kotsu is right the doses are much higher than can be found in Huel, so this isn’t an issue.
