The Huel Complete Nutrition Bar Formula Explained

Nutritional Information and Ingredients of Huel Complete Nutrition Bar

Macronutrients in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar

The central macronutrients through which we obtain energy from food are carbohydrate, fat, protein and fibre. Carbohydrates, although not essential per se, have significant benefits to ensuring a sustained and consistent energy level therefore are important to be contained within Huel Complete Nutrition Bar. There are also fatty acids that are essential for life and good health, such as omega-3s and omega-6s, so including sources of fat is crucial too. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and several amino acids are essential for life, with others being crucial for good health, so any diet has to contain a significant amount of protein.

The ingredients in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar are included in combinations that produce a pleasant texture and flavour, as well as providing great nutrition. This means that the levels of the macronutrients differ from the profile of other Huel products.

Carbohydrate in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar

The carbohydrates in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar mainly come from wheat, although smaller amounts are provided by other ingredients.

Fats in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar: Flaxseed and Sunflower

The fats in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar are provided by cocoa, peanuts, flaxseed powder and sunflower oil. There are two completely essential fatty acids (EFAs) that humans require: linoleic acid (LA – an omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA – an omega-3)[4]. By including flaxseed powder and sunflower oil, we’ve ensured Huel contains both EFAs as well as other omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. The two oils are also present to provide a functional benefit by binding the ingredients together.

Huel Complete Nutrition Bar is High-Protein: Rice and Pea

The RI for protein is 50g per day, but this only covers our very basic needs and prevents protein deficiency[1, 2]. The Western diet typically provides more[7], and the Huel Complete Nutrition Bar does too and be considered high in protein. All essential amino acids are included in adequate amounts from two vegan protein sources: pea and rice protein. This provides a good amount for optimal health as well as maintaining a healthy body. Furthermore, protein is more satiating (appetite suppressing) than other macronutrients[8].

Huel Complete Nutrition Bar is High-fibre

The fibre in Huel Complete Nutrition Bar is predominantly soluble and provides more fibre than most modern diets. The high-fibre content of Huel helps the gut function normally, supports the immune system and can reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes [9-11].

As discussed above, using soluble fibre solutions is one method of binding the bar in production. Fibre acts like a sponge, so it’s important to consume lots of water during the day[12].

Vitamins and Minerals in the Huel Complete Nutrition Bar

The bulk of the vitamins and minerals, also known as micronutrients, in the Huel Complete Nutrition Bar, are from natural ingredients. However, in order to meet the demands of a Western lifestyle, we’ve added a unique vitamin and mineral formula to provide an adequate amount of each.

Since the UK Dietary Reference Values were compiled in 1991[1], there have been numerous studies demonstrating that, for many micronutrients, higher intakes may be beneficial for health.

For example, it’s widely considered that the amount of vitamin C we’re recommended to consume is too low[13-15], so we’ve added a high inclusion in the Huel Complete Nutrition Bar formula. The benefits of consuming more vitamin C include a healthy immune system, healthy skin and antioxidant properties[13-15], and it also helps the absorption of some minerals like iron and zinc [13, 16, 17].

Similarly for vitamin D, because it’s so important to health it has been included at a higher level per bar[18]. The type of vitamin D is vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, in a vegan-suitable form.

With some of the trace element minerals, the levels are far higher than the recommended amounts. This is because we only need tiny amounts of them, but the ingredients in the Huel Complete Nutrition Bar are a naturally rich source.

Choline is a conditionally essential vitamin, and although, strictly speaking, it can be synthesised in our bodies, it’s more efficient to obtain it from our diets[19]. It’s of particular importance for postmenopausal women[20, 21]. As Huel is all about optimum health, Complete Nutrition Bar is a source of choline.

Summary – Huel Complete Nutrition Bar Provides Optimal Nutrition

Huel Complete Nutrition Bars are a complete and balanced source of macronutrients and micronutrients, and as such they have a superior nutritional profile to most conventional diets. Unlike Huel Powder or Hot & Savoury, they should not be used as your sole source of nutrition, but they are perfect as a nutritionally complete snack and are the ideal addition to your Huel diet.

Medication Interactions

Huel Complete Nutrition Bar is fine to consume if you’re using most medication.

Allergen Advice

All Huel products are 100% vegan. We thoroughly assess our ingredients and the processes we use to make Huel and whenever we identify potential routes of allergen contamination we will first take steps to eliminate the possibility of any contamination of our product. However, where it is not possible to remove the risk we will clearly highlight any allergens that might be present on our product packaging and ingredients lists in line with current UK and EU food safety guidelines.

However, we recognise that individuals can have allergens to any protein in any ingredient therefore if you have a specific allergy that is outside of the remit above, please contact us directly and we will do our best to guide you on which products are suitable.
