Continuing the discussion from New Soylent Feedback category:
Idea / Question:
Is there a plan in the works to create a version of Soylent with the same calories, but a boost in vitimins and minerals? Should there be? Let me explain…
So right now, a serving of Soylent 1.5 is 500 calories and approx. 25% of an adult person’s (yes, it varies from person to person) intake of vitamins and minerals, etc. Four of those in a day gives a total of 100% recommended daily values across the board.
Is there a version under development that has 50-75%+ of a person’s required daily intake of vitamins & minerals and 500 calories per serving? So 1-2 servings a day gives 100% (or more) of the recommended daily required nutrients at only 500-1000 calories.
I don’t use Soylent for every meal, I generally use it for a fast and balanced breakfast before I head out for work. It would be handy to have a meal/serving that gave a bigger dose of vitamins and minerals in the (common) event that I don’t have a balanced lunch or dinner. Calorie intake is rarely a problem in meals, but balanced vitamin/mineral intake can be problematic.
There are some vitamins/minerals that can be overdosed on (Vitamin A, E, B, Iron, etc.), so those would be limited to no more than 25% per serving, but all the rest can probably be boosted with little or no ill effects (I’m not a nutritional scientist, so I could be wrong).
This version of Soylent would be ideal for people like me that desire nutritional value but aren’t willing to sacrifice every meal to do so.
(Sorry if I posted this in the wrong area, this UI is weird.)
