My question is about how to determine whether a bag of the dry mix of Soylent is bad in some fashion. Let me explain.
I ordered a 2 1/2 month supply of Soylent and have been really enjoying it. I love the flavor, love the texture, and love the ease of use. It’s everything I’ve wanted in this product and it meets all of my needs.
However, in the past week I opened a bag to mix and noticed it didn’t have the typical “vanilla” smell. Rather it smelled rather “metallic” or even “fishy” (like raw choline bitrate smells). I didn’t think much of it and mixed the batch and it still had that “funky” smell rather than the vanilla cake batter smell I’m used to. When I tasted it, it had the same texture but the taste was completely wrong. So I threw it out.
The next three bags I opened all smelled the same. I mixed another of the opened bags and it too had the same funky smell and the same bad taste.
Can you please advise on what’s going on? How can I tell if the batch is bad, contaminated, or spoiled? And if I have spoiled or contaminated mix, is there a process to obtain replacements? And will I have to open all of my sealed bags to inspect each one to request a replacement quantity if that is offered?
