Green Spots on Pitcher? Right after Preparing


#1

I’m seeing a mix of posts talking about green spots being mold vs being safe. I made the pitcher, then drove to work (30 minutes). I’ve noticed them before within 15 or so.

What are they? It’s 1.5.

I think that is just some of the fat that is encapsulated in the maltodextrin. I’m pretty sure the only mold problems were with the 2.0 liquid version


#3

Mold was 2.0 bottles not being sealed properly.

That looks like oil or fat to me.


#4

They look like clumps of lecithin. Mold doesn’t grow that fast and tends to have a more “fuzzy” look to it.


#5

Indeed these are bits of lecithin. No need to worry :smile:


#6

I thought that problem was just that outside of the bottles had traces of Soylent 2.0 on them.

Soylent was splashing over the rim during the bottling process.
This would prevent a proper seal from forming when the cap was screwed on.
Thus mold growing inside.
