Unflavored HUEL without maltodextrin

I have prehypertension and maltodextrin is known to spike blood sugar- any chance it can be removed in future formulas?

They removed it from the Unflavored & Unsweetened v 3.0, but they other flavors still have it unfortunately.

Check out this article if you haven’t seen it yet: https://huel.com/pages/huel-powder-v3-0-product-and-price-changes#ingredients

Wow thank you very much!

Good spot!

Maltodextrin is only present as a carrier for some of the ingredients. We’re talking tiny amounts of around 1%, it’s not a major carbohydrate source at all so the glycemic index of U/U and the other flavors will probably be the same.

The reason why the flavored versions have maltodextrin on the label is the flavors require a small amount of maltodextrin which results in “maltodextrin” being present on the label.
