Received my Soylent last week and was eager to give it a whirl. I have two big issues with the product:
- Packaging of the oil is messy and does not inspire confidence. That the caps are merely screwed on (loosely, in some cases) and the contents are not sealed in any way is troubling. Tampering and spoilage are major concerns.
- The choice to use sucralose was misguided. In a product where every ingredient is crafted (and, incidentally, critical to the benefit proposition), using artificial sweeteners is both unnecessary and frustrating. This is worsened by the flavor profile: the dry aftertaste ruins the consumption experience. (Note: I feel this way about anything with sucralose, not just Soylent.)
Does anyone want my extra Soylent? I’m going to find an alternative that aspires to use better ingredients.
