HI! PAUL & ALISON HERE, OWNERS AND FOUNDERS OF HENCH FUEL PROTEIN PORRIDGE. WE ARE A FRIENDLY, FAMILY RUN BUSINESS BASED IN THE NORTH OF ENGLAND.
We are passionate about producing food that is as perfectly nutritious as possible and in 2013 we founded RAWnola (TM) and set about producing a grain-free, totally nutritious, chemical free breakfast cereal. We were delighted by the uptake and demand for our granola. This is a combination of Paul’s love for sport, fitness and nutrition and Alison’s passion for cooking and recipe creation. Paul always wanted to formulate a Protein Porridge that was both nutritious and had all the correct macronutrients.
Paul is a former Great British Team athlete in Wheelchair Tennis, he had first hand experience of the importance of fuelling your body for sport “When competing I loved having porridge for breakfast but found that the high sugar content caused too many blood sugar slumps, which affected my performance – both physically and mentally. We have worked tirelessly to create a porridge that has nutrition at it’s heart. Macronutrient perfection is our ultimate goal and as with any other challenge I have faced in my life, my response to those who say I can’t do something is… just watch me…”.
Macronutrients, commonly known as carbs, protein, and fat, were the number one priority. The HENCH Fuel Team wanted to get the numbers just right for maximum nutrition. Once that was achieved, we had to make it taste great too. Its 100% flavour, 0% rubbish without compromising on taste.
HENCH Fuel Protein Porridge contains real ingredients – fruit, nuts, seeds, and spices – to achieve maximum flavour, which also keeps the sugar content to an absolute minimum.
With HENCH Fuel, you can feel safe in the knowledge that the macro-counting has been done for you – We have taken care of the science so that you can focus on your health and fitness training, and enjoy a great tasting product!

WHY PROTEIN PORRIDGE?
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. Studies show that oats have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. Add protein to this and you have a great, balanced meal.
Porridge oats have a very low Glycaemic Index, this means they are slowly absorbed into the body’s blood stream. This not only gives a long gradual release of energy and helps keep your blood sugar levels stable but it also keeps you full much longer than other breakfasts.
Protein is a massive functional component of the cells that make up our body. A protein molecule is made up of long chains of amino acid subunits. Many of these are not made or stored in the body, so it is essential we get plenty of them in our diet, and our porridge is packed full of the stuff.
