Is Black Edition a meal replacement?

While meal replacements may seem similar to Huel Products, they are far from it. They are generally marketed and designed to support either weight loss or a fitness programme, and they're often low in calories.
A two-scoop serving of Huel Black Edition is a nutritionally complete meal, containing 400 calories, a good amount of fibre and fats, and a low GI.

It also contains green tea extract, a source of antioxidants.

How do I use the new Huel Shaker?

Although the new Huel Shaker may look different from the Buchsteiner, making the perfect Huel is still super easy. Instead of measuring out your water quantity each time, we’ve now got just one simple 500ml fill line. Add water until it reaches the line, add 2x level scoops of Huel Powder, put the grid on, screw on the lid and cap, shake hard for 10 seconds and enjoy!

For more detailed instructions, check out our How to Use Powder page.

What are the similarities between Huel Powder and Black Edition?

Huel Black Edition contains all 26 essential vitamins and minerals, just like all Huel products. They both contain added phytonutrients such as lycopene, and kombucha, and probiotics. You add water (or plant milk) to both, there’s minimal packaging, they’re sustainable and vegan.

What are the benefits of the new ingredients?

Kombucha is a source of B-vitamins, while green tea extract brings catechins, which act as antioxidants. Probiotics may have many beneficial effects, particularly in relation to gut health.

Why have you removed oats?

Oats bring a variety of nutrients but are also high in carbohydrates. To make Huel Black Edition low in carbohydrates, we replaced the oats with tapioca, which is also in Ready-to-drink. This provides a smooth texture and gives Hueligans a low carb option.

Why have you removed sucralose?

There is nothing wrong with sucralose. However, we listen to requests from some of our Hueligans who wanted a flavoured Powder option without sucralose, so here you go! Huel Black Edition is naturally sweetened by stevia and a small amount of organic coconut sugar. If you prefer a higher carbohydrate meal, we offer Unflavoured & Unsweetened Huel Powder, which also doesn’t contain sucralose.

Can it help me lose weight fast?

Simply, no. It’s a common misconception that carbohydrates make you gain weight. Huel Black Edition is food, and weight loss is mainly about eating fewer calories than your body needs. Much like our Huel Powder and Ready-to-drink, it can help with making you feel full as it’s high in protein and fibre.

Is it suitable for a keto diet?

It could form part of a keto diet. However, a typical keto diet is typically higher in fat and lower in protein than Huel Black Edition.

Primary Plus Black Created with Sketch.

Does it taste different from other Huel Powder products?

It has a more subtly sweet taste. The Vanilla flavour is milder than Huel Powder, and the Chocolate flavour has more of a dark chocolate taste. You can’t taste anything from green tea, as it adds to the nutritional profile rather than the flavour of Huel Black Edition.

Primary Plus Black Created with Sketch.

Why is it more expensive?

Huel Black Edition is lower in carbohydrates. which tend to be the cheapest macronutrient. We are also using a more expensive ingredient as a source of carbohydrates compared to the rest of Huel Powder products (tapioca starch as opposed to oats). The higher amount of pea and brown rice protein, flaxseed, sunflower oil, and MCT powder have also contributed to a higher cost.

Is there any caffeine in Huel Black Edition?

The caffeine level in most flavours of Huel Black Edition is below the level of detection. Green tea brings a small amount of caffeine but this is under 3mg per 90g serving. In a standard cup of coffee you would find roughly 90mg of caffeine.

Please note:

In Coffee Caramel there is 66mg per 90g serving.

In Chocolate there is 6mg per 90g serving.

Where is Huel Powder made?

Huel Powder is made at our state-of-the-art facility in the UK. It’s produced in accordance with rigorous food production regulations.

Primary Plus Black Created with Sketch.

What is the shelf life of Huel Powder?

The shelf life of Huel Powder is 12 months from production date if your pouch is unopened and stored in a dry, cool environment, away from direct sunlight. Don’t worry about keeping track, there is a best before date printed on the pouch.

It’s 3 months if your pouch is open. Just reseal and store in dry, cool environment, away from direct sunlight.

Once you’ve prepared your Huel, keep it refrigerated for 24 hours. You can save more time and make up your breakfast the night before, plus it tastes great cold.

If you’re on the go and don’t have a fridge handy, providing the temperature is cool, your prepared Huel can stay fresh for a few hours.

Please note, we try to send out product with as long as possible before the best before date to give you enough time to consume your Huel, however this does depend on levels of stock. There may be some cases where you receive something with 3 months until the date.

If you receive something with less than 3 months, please reach out to us so we can help.

Is the packaging of Huel Powder recyclable?

The pouches of Huel Powder are sadly not recyclable, currently. They are made of a composite of plastic outer layer for strength and to ensure they are waterproof, and an inner layer of foil to block light and stop the micronutrients degrading.

We could make the pouches recyclable tomorrow, from biodegradable material. However, the compromise is that they will be weaker, will start to break down in the presence of moisture and will not block all the light. This means that the shelf life of Huel Powder will need to be reduced, and there will be significant increase in product being spoiled due to water damage and general wear and tear. Therefore, we think overall using the current stronger, light blocking non-recyclable pouches actually creates less waste overall.

Despite this fact, the amount of waste that Huel packaging creates is frankly minimal compared to the packaging involved in most shop-bought food. This picture shows the amount of Huel Powder and packaging for 96 years of Huel Powder.

What's in Huel Black Edition?

A typical 400kcal meal contains a balanced macro split of 17:40:40:3 (carbohydrates, fat, protein fibre), all 26 essential vitamins and minerals, and phytonutrients (the good stuff from plants).

Whether you're trying to lose weight, build muscle, or just eat healthily, Black Edition gives you a bumper dose of protein and everything else your body needs to be at its best.

Nutritional information
Carbohydrate 17g
Protein 40g
Fat 18g
Fibre 6.6g
Vitamins & Minerals 3g

All-natural flavours and sweeteners only

All Huel products are plant-powered, and Black Edition is no exception. You won't find any nasty bits here – all of our flavourings are completely natural, and we've used stevia and coconut sugar to give the powder a natural sweetness, while also keeping its overall sugar content below 5%.

All-natural goodness comes from green tea, which acts as a natural antioxidant, and MCTs from coconut, which can benefit your health.

Weight loss done right

We would never describe Huel as a weight loss product, but it can help you lose weight if used correctly.
Losing weight is simply a case of consuming fewer calories than you burn – each Huel meal contains 400 kcal, but Black Edition lets you be flexible with your caloric intake – if you want fewer calories, simply add less scoops to your shake!

Unlike most weight loss shakes, Huel powders are packed with loads of additional good stuff like amino acids and phytonutrients. No empty calories here.
