What makes the Huel Bar different?

On the face of it, all snack bars can seem the same and it can be hard to see the wood from the trees. Don’t worry though we’re going to give you the lowdown on what makes the Huel Bar special.


Protein Bars

As the name suggests protein mainly makes up a protein bar. They can be helpful if you’re trying to put on muscle and are struggling to get protein from other areas of your diet. However, they’re not providing much else. Protein bars lack essential fats, vitamins, and minerals so you’re going to have to get those elsewhere. Also, a Huel Bar doesn’t contain any palm oil, artificial flavourings, or colours.

Energy Bars

Energy bars are most often the best selling snack bars on the market and they tend to be super high in sugar, often 5 teaspoons plus per bar! This is great if you’re doing some prolonged exercise, we’re talking 1 hour or more, but for all other times, this sugar is just adding calories without any other nutrients or purpose.

Energy bars may contain some added vitamins and minerals, but not always, and they probably won’t contain all 26 essential vitamins and minerals.

Granola Bars

A granola bar usually consists of oats, grains, and nuts. They do provide carbohydrates and fibre however, they lack protein, good fats, and again those hard to get essential vitamins and minerals. Despite their often healthy and natural appearance, they are often high in sugar to appeal to your taste buds.

Chocolate Bars

The focus of a chocolate bar is not nutrition but taste. The issue is chocolate bars are high in sugar and fats without providing any real nutritional value. Having a chocolate bar every now and then is okay as of course food can bring enjoyment but you don’t want to be having one every day.

Complete Nutrition Bars



This is where the Huel Bar comes in. We define complete nutrition as providing at least 100% of Dietary Reference Values of all essential nutrients per 2000kcal, or more simply, a Huel Bar provides everything you need, it’s complete.

A Huel Bar is not:

  • a protein bar because although a Huel Bar is high in protein, with 12g per serving it contains much, much more than just protein.
  • an energy bar. A Huel Bar contains at least 50% less sugar, which is mainly there to help everything stick together. This is less than half the sugar of an average energy bar and a Huel Bar also contains essential fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals in the right amounts.
  • a chocolate bar. That one is obvious, right?
