What’s in Soylent?
Since we launched our campaign, we’ve gotten hundreds of emails asking about the contents of Soylent. People are concerned about allergens, vegetarian/vegan-friendliness, or (understandably) just want to know what they’ll be putting in their bodies.
While the formula for Soylent will change somewhat on the path to large-scale manufacture, we want to release the current list of ingredients today, and reassure our supporters and skeptics alike that in fact, Soylent is not people, and contains no person-derived compounds. Rather, it is:
Oat Powder (carbs, fiber, protein, fat)
Whey Isolate (protein)
Grapeseed Oil (fat)
Powdered Soy Lecithin
Ferrous Gluconate (Iron)
Once we finalize our formula, we will release a revised ingredients list, along with a detailed nutritional breakdown. Please note that the above list includes the major ingredients of Soylent, and Soylent contains some vitamins and minerals that are not listed above. For more information on what these are, please visit: http://robrhinehart.com/?p=424
Finally, an enormous thanks to everyone who has contributed, emailed us with their questions/concerns, and shared our promise of an easy, healthy future of nutrition with their friends and family. If you have any concerns about these ingredients, or suggestions about more optimal sources of the nutrients listed above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
