BERTRAND in comparison with Soylent

BERTRAND in comparison with Soylent

In addition to BERTRAND, other powdered foods have been created that contain all the essential nutrients that an average adult needs per day. One of these products is Soylent by Rob Rhinehart

When selecting powdered foods, there are categories, such as nutrients contained in the food, which you as a consumer can directly compare. But there are also philosophies about which ingredients a food should and should not consist of. Which composition you choose depends on the goals you want to achieve with powdered food. But now more about this in a direct comparison.

The philosophies of BERTRAND and Soylent
Soylent obtains its contained nutrients mainly from synthetically produced vitamins and minerals and thus follows a trend that was first initiated by Soylent developer Rob Rhinehart. The advantage of synthetically produced vitamins and minerals is that they can be stored for a very long time and are very inexpensive to produce.

BERTRAND obtains all nutrients from ~20 natural sources such as gluten-free cereals, oilseeds, almonds, nuts, berries, algae and other natural ingredients. With this philosophy we follow the recommendations of the major nutritional societies, which consider the intake of synthetic vitamins unnecessary and sometimes even harmful.

We have also summarized our view of the benefits of nutrients from natural sources here.

The figures in comparison
The comparison of the variants is complex, as BERTRAND and Soylent have different package sizes. We have therefore compared the largest packages for one-time orders. Soylent from RosaLabs is not yet distributed in the EU, we have therefore not considered the shipping costs.
