I believe that has something to do with the food/nutrients being absorbed too quickly and not making it to the small intestines therefor not allowing the good bacteria to feed of it as much. Thats what I heard anyway. I still have a blended smoothie every day though.

I was a bit sceptical initially, but I can see the logic in this. Blending probably has a significant effect on the resilience (for want of a better word) of resistant starches and fibre.

I wouldn't consume Huel or other similar products solely because I enjoy creating my own meals from wholefood. I try to buy local where I can and fresh (when local) or frozen to retain as much nutritional value as I can.

I can completely see the benefits though to those who add this type of produce for both convenience and to ensure they obtain a good nutritional profile where their diet may not be "optimal".

I've not done any reading/research on the pros and cons of nutrient/fibre retention with such "processed" (not in the strictest sense) foods so can't comment. Although any reading would be out of interest rather than supporting a decision to consume them.

I've not used it yet, but we we're discussing it on a recent multi day hiking trip.  It makes perfect sense to be used as a food on ultra-light hiking and climbing trips.
 
You wouldn't even need to pack a stove, just enough Huel and your water sanitation tablets. You can make a meal with just a water source and your canteen.

Comments on the video within youtube are typical cult member nods of agreement. One guy says using a blender "destroys nutrients" is there anything in this?

Sure. But there's no basis for this as I'm sure you know.

This may be of interest?

I'm pretty interested in the ready mixed product that's soon to launch. I've sampled the vanilla Huel and find it pretty tasty. I don't "do" typical milkshake drinks as I don't like the sweetness and as such I've never found a protein shake I liked. I've normally used vanilla with a spoon of coffee added to remove the sweetness and enhance the taste. I've recently found myself having the Kvarg yoghurt drinks for breakfast for convenience but am conscious that they do lack in carbs and other nutrients. I would definitely go for Huel over these.
