Go to Soylent: Discover what it’s all about

What if you never had to worry about food again?

Soylent asks this unseemingly harrowing question, and I can’t help but think that the future of food may be here.

It has all of the nutrition in a full meal. Hear it from the makers themselves here:

Some of their points include:


  • Prepare multiple meals in minutes – no need to shop for individual ingredients or plan ahead


  • Spend less than $10 per day on food, and less than $4 per meal – get more than a day’s worth of meals for less than the cost of takeout


  • Eat balanced and wholesome – get all of the essential nutrients required to fuel the human body

You may be wondering, what is Soylent made of?

As the primary source of energy for the body, carbohydrates are the largest component of Soylent by mass. The two main sources of carbs in Soylent are the starch in oat flour and the oligosaccharide Maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is a medium-long chain of glucose units composed of both 1->4 and 1->6 glycosidic bonds. Starches are long polysaccharide repeats consisting of amylose and amylopectin linked together by glycosidic bonds and are broken down slowly by the body, thus preventing a spike in blood sugar.
