Heavy Metals Test in v1.1?


#1

Hello, I wanted to know if it would be possible to get my hands on the latest heavy metals analysis for Huel v1.1. I know the latest analysis posted (from February 2018 of Huel v1.0 Vanilla https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0578/1097/files/COA-15-Feb-18-40918766-0_Redacted.pdf?4893006483405314237 ) gave a lead ratio of .02 ppm (w/w). Which, if you are not familiar with the measurement, is quite confusing. After some digging I found out that ppm (w/w) means “parts per million (weight / weight)”. So basically, weight of substance contained in total mass divided by total mass times 1,000,000. So in order to get a lead ppm (w/w) of .02 there has to be 0.000001g (1μg) of lead per every 50g of Huel (0.000001/50×1000000 = .02). Therefore based on that math if one had a complete Huelfull diet (2000 calories of the stuff), one would have an intake of 10μg of lead per day. It is also good to note that while the FDA reduced the intake of lead by children from 6μg to 3μg (thank god), their website still states that “safe” intake levels of lead per day for an adult are 12.5μg ( https://www.fda.gov/food/foodborneillnesscontaminants/metals/ucm2006791.htm its kinda hidden, you have to click on the “… Monitoring and Testing …” link almost at the bottom if the article). Anyway, please correct my math if I am wrong, I ain’t no food scientist or anything like that. If anyone could provide a more recent heavy metals analysis it would be awesome!

Heyo! We are conducting the heavy metals test for 1.1 and will have the report soon :slight_smile:
