Cover picture: BERTRAND, an alternative to Soylent, which obtains its nutrients from natural, organic ingredients.
The way we have been feeding ourselves so far is inefficient. That is the key premise from which the product Soylent by former software developer Rob Rhinehart has emerged. In its powdered version, Soylent is mainly a melange of soy protein, isomaltulose, and maltodextrin. Synthetically manufactured vitamins and minerals are added in order to cover the recommended daily nutrient requirements. Most advantages of a nutrition powder are obvious:
Time saving through Soylent
The conventional way we eat is rather time-consuming. We have to reflect on what we want to eat, we have to buy the ingredients to prepare, we cook, eat, and do the washing up. With a Soylent diet, the expenditure of time disappears almost completely. The purchase is handled online and delivered via package directly to one’s home. For one meal, a bit of powder is filled into a shaker, water is added, the concoction is shaken briefly, and the food is ready-to-eat. Most of the time, the respective activity does not have to be interrupted for consumption.
Healthier diet through Soylent?
Soylent contains, so the manufacturer promises, all vitamins and minerals that are recommended for an average adult per day. If one takes the scientific recommendations on nutritional value seriously, a healthy diet is in fact not easy. In many households, standard meals are being prepared varyingly which do not depict nutrients in their respectively recommended amount. It has yet to be proven if a Soylent diet, to which synthetically manufactured nutrients have been added, is in fact healthier than a conventional diet with actual food. But there is an alternative to Soylent.
