If you missed my previous posts in this series – I asked – do you see some of the terms relating to food being thrown around lately and wonder what the “beep” they mean?
Me too. So I thought I would do a series of very short posts on these to explain!
This week – we will talk about:
What is Soylent?
Firstly before I go any further, let me just say this is a post I am writing for your information only – at present I haven’t had Soylent and I don’t plan to try it. But if you do – please let me know!
In a nutshell (or perhaps shaker), Soylent is a powdered food source you mix with water and consume for breakfast, lunch and dinner…in fact it is all you eat, or rather, drink.
It’s designed to save you time in food preparation, money and provide a complete diet as the powder has been developed to provide all necessary vitamins and minerals. Unlike the Soylent in the movie “Soylent Green” from 1973, thankfully this is “human-free”.
Its creator, Rob Rhinehart states:
“Food should be optimised and personalised. If Soylent was as cheap and easy to obtain as a cup of coffee, I think people would be much healthier and healthcare costs would be lower. And I think this is entirely possible”.
So there you go. If you want to buy some Soylent (I should say it looks a lot like baby formula in the pictures), see their website.
