Jake compared to Huel

jake vs huel

What is Jake?

Jake is complete food. Complete food provides every nutrient your body needs. In 2015 we introduced our first complete food, the shake. Since then we’ve been working on further development. Ingredients have been replaced and flavours have been improved. The Vitaminbars and later the limited edition shakes were added, and meals have gotten easier. And we keep on creating and testing new products, so you can stay healthy.

All the ingredients in Jake are carefully selected to contribute to the nutritional profile of the meal replacement shakes & the meal replacement bars. That means Jake gets you all of the good, and none of the bad. Jake is lactose-free, animal-free and vegan. The 26 vitamins and minerals are according to the recommendations by the European Food Safety Authority.

What is Huel?

Huel, like us, is complete food. Founded by Julian Hearn in 2015 in the United Kingdom they started making shakes. Nowadays they sell three complete food products: Huel RTD, Huel Powder & Huel Bars. Huel contains a balance of all 26 essential vitamins and minerals, protein, essential fats, carbs, fibre and phytonutrients in a single product.
