    Diabetic review

    Overall Experience:

    I actually bought it as the Huel site says it has a low glycemic index of 27. I'm diabetic and working and eating 5-6 meals a day to keep my sugar ok is quite a challenge. So I was thinking I can use Huel for 1-2 meals a day as a convenient substitute to ordinary meals. Every time I eat Huel I get sugar blood content of like 350-450 mg/dl. For all non-diabetics out there, this is like toxic levels. I could eat the same amount of refined sugar and get similar results as I get with Huel. I don't know what they put in it but it seems to be about as healthy as a diet made of eating only candy bars. If they are willing to lie about the glycemic index and risking some diabetics like me getting sick because of this misleading claims, I wonder what else are they willing to lie about. My 2 bags of Huel, unfortunately, will go to the trash. As now I am convinced that actually eating it would be harmful to my health. It may not be as harmful to non-diabetics, but for diabetics like me, I would like to warn you. This thing is literally a poison as it will push your sugar into hyperglycemia as if you eat sweets.

    Sorry for my English, I live in Poland and I'm not a native speaker and don't use English often so I'm not too good.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
