Are the creators of Soylent aware of this nutritional critique from examine.com? The gist of it is that they believe simply fulfilling RDA values is too simplistic a view of nutrition. They point out several concrete things that Soylent lacks sufficient quantities of such as cholesterol, fiber, and psuedovitamins like choline and nitrates.
At least some of this seems to be out of date. For example, they claim that Soylent uses olive oil as it’s only source of fat, but that’s no longer true (It now contains fish oil and canola oil). Looking at the ingredients, soylent also now has a source of choline.
I generally trust examine.com, so I’m curious to see how Soylent has responded to this. I’m hoping this has already been discussed, but I couldn’t find an existing thread in search.
