Maybe you can clarify some confusion I am having with the heavy metals report you released. It isn’t really reassuring to me, though I’m guessing that’s because I don’t fully understand it. This is a link to the report you released last year on heavy metals in Huel: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0578/1097/files/Huel_Powder_v2.2_Heavy_Metals_Nov17.pdf?16695768511088697551
According to the FDA, the safe level for lead is 6 micrograms / day in food. That is an outdated number from 1993 that hasn’t been updated, but the current assessment is that it is too high and they are still in the process of finding a lower safe value (https://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodborneIllnessContaminants/Metals/ucm557424.htm).
However, according to your own report a single serving of Huel (100g) contains 0.004 milligrams of lead (4 micrograms). This is below the FDAs old recommendation, but that’s for a single serving. I don’t see how you could have more than a single serving a day and still be below the safe level of 6 micrograms (which is, as the FDA states, too high anyway). Certainly having Huel as the only source of nutrition would put someone above that number very quickly.
I’m sure you’ve done your homework, so I’m just trying to do mine and get a better understanding of how the safety determination is made and its relationship to other measures of food safety. Is there something I’m missing about the heavy metal report or recommended serving sizes?
