Diy rendition of soylent 2.0


#1

Hello all,

I have near cloned the soylent 2.0 recipe and I am going to put it online this week. I would like to see some interest first and some advice for finding the right flavoring for the recipe. Would people be interested?


#2

Why?


#3

I started adding ingredients to the diy page but unfortunately the site is bringing up an error when I try to add more items now. I’ll try to check back later to see if I can’t finish it up.


#4

Yes this is a fun idea

Here it is. I still have maybe a little tweaking to do to it but overall i think it’s pretty good! It is very similar to the actual 2.0 except it doesn’t store as long.

Looks interesting… I’m looking forward to hearing if anyone else taste - tests it.

The MSM shouldn’t be necessary, sufficient protein should have enough Sulfur-containing Amino Acids to cover you, the consensus in the community for a while has been to calculate the SAA and drop the MSM. Also, are you taking the pills whole, or grinding them into the mix?


#8

Grinding them into the mix of course. Thank you for the tip on the MSM.

I don’t know if you’ve had the chance to try the finished product yet, but if not be aware that some of those pills can be very bitter when ground. I know you’ve added some flavorings though, so that may cover the bitterness, no way to know until you try. There are some powdered alternatives if you have issues, they’ll add a bit to the cost though.

Hi. Looks cool.
Just some comments from me on the formula.

  • Canola Oil. It is impossible to get Algal Oil however a better substitute is (approx) 70% high oliec Sunflower Oil and 30% Canola Oil.

  • protein. The overall protein is 110g. Soylent is 100g.

  • vitamin mix. It would be cool if you could develop a version using @axcho vitamin mix (coming soon?)

I’ll have another look later and see if I come up with anything else.

I guess this is one way to avoid adding sucralose to the soylent powder.


#12

I agree with kennufs on the MSM and on the vitamins… I take my vites separately when on Soylent, because the flavors they impart just don’t work in the mix for me.


#13

Thrive is now available, but it’s pretty expensive.

Yes definitely adding in some Sunflower Oil. As far as the algal oil goes I don’t think it’s essential to the recipe. I think of it more as a clever marketing scheme and allows them to differentiate their product from the diy blends. but thats just my 2 cents. I will also be adding a starch and some trehalose. Also going to decrease the salt. The vitamins taste fine also. It’s not bitter at all. I will repost when I have the final product.
