Grains of rice in my soylent?


#1

My soylent seems to have some little hard grains of rice in it… is this normal?

Lot G5112DA v1.5


#2

Haven’t heard of that before.

Get a pic of it?


#3

probably clumped vitamins


#4

Tagging @Conor because that is NOT normal.


#5

I have found many of these but they all look like this: https://i.imgur.com/INPWkKn.jpg

They are very hard. Their texture seems like rice and their texture when wet seems like rice.

Because they are mostly oblong I do not think they are clumped vitamins. I think they are rice.


#6

Oh should I stop eating it then? I wasn’t too worried because rice isn’t going to hurt me…

#8

That sure looks like rice.


#9

Don’t shout too loudly about your free rice, everyone will want some.

I am still working on my stash of 1.4 and there was a batch that had those sometimes. They float to the top and there’s never more than two or three in each 500cal portion. Always white, hardly ever bigger than the one @glass pictured, and when bitten they just crumble and are flavorless. I would not be surprised if they turned out to be rice.

Funny how when something is so homogenous we notice something so small. I bet if these little things were in a potato salad or something (at the same rate, ~2 per serving) we would never even notice.

It’s a bit US-centric to include a one-cent coin for scale. You should use something more international, like a banana.


#12

I’ve noticed that about every tenth or twentieth veggie pizza I order will have a tiny bit of sausage or pepperoni on it.


#13

Is there a standard size of banana?


#14

And onion rings often have a spare french fry.

A grain of rice is probably >= 10 mesh. The coarsest screen in a hammer mill is usually 60 mesh. That tells me that Rosa Labs does not properly mill the Soylent powder mixture before mixing. Content uniformity of a mixture is achieved when the proportion of the ingredients is identical all over the mixture. The smaller the particles, the better the content uniformity.


#16

I always use a banana for scale.


#17

Nope.


#18

The variation in banana sizes allows for misleading advertisements…helps make a sale when size matters

Hey everyone, I spotted the Imgurian.
