Huel is a nutritionally complete powdered food. It's been formulated by a renowned nutrition expert to include the perfect balance of carbs, fat, protein and fibre with all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. You can replace all your food with Huel, but most will only replace one or two of their meals. See full nutritional profile here.
It's made from real food (Oats, Brown Rice, Pea, Flaxseed, Sunflower and MCTs from Coconut) which has been turned into a powder for convenience. The result is a surprisingly cheap, time saving, environmentally friendly, simple, and humane (100% vegan) food. Huel provides at least 100% of the UK and EU 'Reference Intakes' and 'Nutrient Reference Values' for all essential nutrients.
Huel has a GI of 27.
Huel is a nutritionally complete product and is therefore a suitable option for any meal. In addition to all essential vitamins and minerals, it also contains a good fatty acid profile including omega-3s, monounsaturates and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Furthermore, Huel meets the recommended intake for fibre and contains beneficial phytonutrients and more.*

Quite simply, yes. Just like any food, it all comes down to calories:
Eat more calories than your body uses, and you will gain weight.
Eat fewer calories than your body uses and you will lose weight.
Approximately 3500 calories equals 1 lb of fat. Therefore, eating a deficit of 500 calories per day should see you lose about 1 lb of fat a week and vice versa.
With Huel it is easy to know exactly how many calories you consume, you simply weigh the powder, then calculate how many calories are in it. The co-founder of Huel, James Collier BSc (Hons), RNutr's Guide to Fat Loss and Guide to Weight Gain are fantastic aids to your goals as well.
You can find out more about how many calories your body needs with this online calorie calculator.
Huel is generally best enjoyed cold; it’s particularly good with a few ice cubes thrown in! Huel can be drunk warm however, and is a great way to warm up on a cold winter’s morning. We don’t recommend using boiling water though, as this may affect its nutritional profile. To avoid this, boil the water and let it cool, or simply mix it with cold water before adding it to your Huel.
