Not knowing what to expect, Soylent 1.8 has exceeded my expectations.
I'm new to Soylent. Just finished my first week of 1.8
The inital taste/texture was a litte strange. I've never really been into protein shakes or supplements, so I don't have much to compare it to. But the actual flavor of Soylent 1.8 I find rather pleasent. I describe it as the smell you notice when you are standing in front of the healthy cereals at the grocery store.
The liquid one concocts is decent and creamy, though there definitely is a noticable grit. I personally don't mind it as I'm used to chewing food. Haha. (It's not that extreme). Also, I think it's an easy grittiness to accept knowing that it's just granulated nutrients and not beach sand.
I haven't noticed any digestion issues. There is some mild gas, but nothing unbearable or inconvenient. Granted I'm a single dude in my early 20's.
I haven't intended to be 100% dependent on Soylent this past week as I've been getting rid of stray food items in my fridge/freezer. Once my resupply arrives on Monday, my intentions are to rely on Soylent for all of my nutritional needs, hopefully for the rest of the year. So I'll update my input here if anything drastic changes.
Finally, I know this thread is intended for feedback on the physical powder and the drink it makes. But I do have some comments on the instructions and packaging. Perhaps someone more familiar with this discourse can point me to the right place. Or if anyone is interested you are welcome to inquire.
