Getting ingredients, mixing (etc) in germany


#1

I was wondering if there are people from Germany (or even “closer” to me: Berlin) that are interested in forming some “ingredient-buyer-partnership” or just to exchange views and tips about Soylent. Like where to buy ingredients in the beginning, etc …


#2

I am also from Germany (Bavaria). This is my recipe https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuZkB7qqRcX6dDgwUFRXb1hTbTVIN2NzeEEzTk0yLXc&usp=sharing

It is low on carbs and i am buying the proteins from US. I have not yet tested it and i might change some things.

Also th to however created this design.

Im from Germany - Karlsruhe)


#4

I’m from Germany too. Definitely interested.

Thanks for sharing your recipe, LordMord.


#5

I suggest you find a european protein source, shipping times and costs from US are not worth it. Here is my choice. http://www.myprotein.com/home.dept

The guy in the fitness store I was in yesterday suggested that their protein products might not be the best quality.
My Maltodextrin actually is of the Myprotein-brand though.


#7

That the MyProtein is not the best quallity?

I am taking a look at it, cause it is cheaper. But i am not sure if it contains phosphorus wich i need and didn’t find any other source jet.

Also i made a slight change to my recipe replacing sunflower seeds with coconut. It is cheaper and contains mtc fatty acids.


#8

Yes, he was of the opinion that Myprotein doesn’t produce the highest quality stuff.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004VMDP7S/ for Phosphor.

I have ordered and received my protein batch from there. As soon as I receive the rest of the ingredients I will put it to the test. What I can tell from the pouches is that nutritional facts are too generic to be useful and reliable for something like soylent…

I ordered it from their ebay store actually, not their site cause it has cheaper shipping, dunno why!

I am currently on a soylent with Protein and Malto from myprotein, and it works fine, except my mixture needs a little finetuning.
Maybe the myprotein-stuff isn’t the best whey on the market, but “the best” is also the most expensive - not always because of quality, but the brandname, fancy ingriedients for profi athletes…
At least you can have a look at the test results they did for their whey on myprotein:

A second good source is http://www.xxlnutrition.de/ - they do free shipping to germany and the shipping is also very fast.


#11

I am from germany (near Bonn) too.
Would be interested in a buyer-partnership…


#12

I’m preparing a recipe using soy protein from a German company; anyone know anything about Pro Sana?

#13

CuriousBen it seems like i can’t buy that Phosphor. Says it can’t be shipped to me. Any other sources?

#15

thanks for that. Got something different for the time being but unfortunately more expensive. If the experiment goes well i might us this.


#16

Just chipping in to say that I’m from Hamburg, Germany.

I’d be interested in buying some Soylent, or helping anyone in my area prepare a batch, just ping me.


#17

I’m from Hamburg, Germany too and would be interested in buying ingredients / making Soylent in a group.

I guess Soylent would be an interesting thing for Hackerspaces too.
What about meeting up in the c-base (Berlin) or Attraktor (Hamburg) to make it there?


#19

Another in Hamburg ready to join in group buying or group creation


#20

Attraktor sounds like a good option, any Hamburgers have any experience with precise scientific unit measurement?


#21

I live in Osnabrück and I’m interested in buying from a group. Message me if someone is starting a buying-group!
