I see that Soylent has 20% of the recommended daily nutritional requirement for iron, but is that for males or females? I assume males because this product has been developed by a man, who may blithely think women can just take iron supplements. I drink about four bottles a day, since my calorie goal for my height/weight/age is 1700, so 2000 is too much.
Assuming male iron target (8mg, I believe), 20% is 1.6mg per bottle. Women need 18mg per day, so if all this is correct, I am getting only one third my required iron (6.4mg). This would match my experiences, as I’ve started showing symptoms of a lack of iron.
Does anyone know solid numbers on this? I could only find the 20% number. Iron supplements are very hard on a person’s stomach - I personally can’t take them without feeling quite sick. So if these numbers are correct, is there any chance of a release of Soylent 2.0 with more iron? Any information would be appreciated.
