For Soylent users who are experiencing gas, could you help test some possible solutions?
One is Beano. This gas-preventing enzyme is going out of patent at the end of the year, so if it works on Soylent, it would be easy to add. A casual first-time buyer wouldn’t even have to think about it, since the gas-preventing enzyme would be fixing the problem from the start.
Another solution is simply to soak Soylent overnight. There’s some speculation that the gas may be due to the oats, and an old solution to oats causing gas is to soak the oats overnight. Some sources say to soak oats in the refrigerator, others say at room temperature so that the enzymes develop. Another advantage to soaking Soylent is that it supposedly results in a smoother texture. But I’m not sure if ordinary consumers will always want to soak every glass for hours.
Anyway, if one of these methods works, we can solve what might be the biggest complaint people have been registering. I hope one of these solutions works for you!
