How important are those best-by dates?

Hi there. I still have an unopened bag of Huel and realized it had a best-by date of May 2018. Any harm in consuming this?

I’m sure it’s fine, just give it a whiff. The best buy date, to my knowledge, just ensures the vitamins are still good. Vitamins will degrade naturally over time, but the powder its self should still be quite edible.

Hi @Christo,

Unopened - 1 year. Huel can be stored up to a year in a dry, cool environment, away from direct sunlight. There is a best before date printed on the pouch.

Pouch open - 6 months. You can reseal an opened pouch and store in dry, cool environment, away from direct sunlight for half a year.


The 24 hour mixed shake deadline is for real. After that it separates, and becomes toxic.
