A 400kcal meal of Huel Essential contains a balanced macro split of 56:20:20:4 (carbohydrate, protein, fat, fibre) and all the 26 essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive.

100% natural flavours and smooth texture. Our most affordable Huel Powder yet.

All the flavours in Huel Essential are 100% natural, with fine powdered oats and tapioca used as the main carbohydrate source for a super smooth texture. With a larger sized pouch (2.25kg) and a lower cost per meal (1.29 €), Huel Essential has the lowest price per meal of any 400 kcal meal in the range.

Of course, nutrition always comes first at Huel, so you won’t be compromising on that. Huel Essential is still 100% vegan, low-sugar (under 1%), low in salt and nutritionally complete.

Plant-based ingredients. Oats, rice, peas, coconut, flaxseed, sunflower.

With 20g of plant-based protein and a 56:20:20:4 macro split (carbs, protein, fat, fibre) per meal, we’ve managed to lower the cost of Huel Essential by stripping the ingredients back to just the essentials that your body needs to thrive.

With a slightly higher carb content down to the use of more oats, Huel Essential is available in two delicious flavours (Vanilla and Chocolate). It’s Huel nutrition, for less. Oh, and did we mention our new pouch is also recyclable!
