I’ve been drinking Huel for about a year now and I just got my hands on the v3.0 product. After a couple tries, I discovered a preparation method that works for me, and creates a very smooth shake (especially compared to the v1.1 shakes I was used to)
- Fill the Huel shaker 2/3 with water, no ice.
- Add 2 scoops of Huel and shake for several seconds.
- Add the remaining 1/3 water. Shake again.
- Refrigerate for at least an hour.
To my best estimation, the last step allows the shake to thicken a bit, as well as letting the unmixed clumps of Huel sink to the bottom of the cup. At the end of my shake, I just rinse these clumps out in the sink, which brings me to my question:
Are there any micro-nutrients I might be missing out on by letting the clumps sink to the bottom and not drinking them? (ie: are there some nutrients in Huel that are harder to dissolve and more likely to clump up) In particular, I’m concerned about omega-3 fatty acids, as my current diet (vegetarian) does not include any other sources of these.
