I don’t know if it’s because people are trying to be politically correct, or if they just have no idea what they’re talking about.
But statements like " I wish every article I read didn’t compare Soylent to Plumpy’nut or Ensure, they’re completely different products with entirely different nutritional benefits." are starting to get to me. WHAT NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS?
The ingredients in ensure and pretty much every other meal replacement out there SUCK. Don’t like people ragging on corn syrup? Deal with it, it sucks. I could go on and on.
Any “benefits” that exist in any other currently existing meal replacement, exist in soylent. Without the tons of random shit they put into it for preservation etc.
I see a lot of potential in soylent, it’s just agitating when people compare it to INFERIOR products. Individual ingredients matter people, and the less crap we put in alongside the things we actually need (Macro/Micronutrients) the better.
