I have found the missing ingredient! to all soylent recipes


#1

The thing that is most difficult to attain in powdered form is the fatty acids; the omega 3-6-9’s and fats. Another problem with soylent formulas is the texture.

Hemp milk powder contains all the essential fatty acids, amino acids, proteins and fats. It adds a more milky, tasty texture that goes down easier.

No need to mix your drinks with oil anymore, soylent has just got more convenient!

Now simply add your vitamin and minerals, carb’s and flavour exchancers(vannila powder, coco…etc) and you should be good to go!

The problem:

There is just one problem, the only people that source the product seem to have disappeared, simply hemp milk is that product and it seems to be sold out, Facebook page not updated and website shutdown :frowning:

founder:

My name is Seth, and I recently made a documentary called Average Joe on the Raw. In this film, I transformed my life by going from a typical Standard America Diet (SAD) to 60 days of fully vegan, fully raw.

During this journey, one thing I struggled with was finding a good non dairy substitute. The stuff I bought at the stores (almond milk, soy milk, and even the hemp milk) was better for me than the cows milk, but it wasn’t where I wanted to be. Because of the additives and fillers and preservatives that are in all other store bought milks, I began making my own hemp milk. It took me months and months to come up with the perfect recipe, but once I did, I was super excited! I began sharing this milk with my friends, my family and anyone who would listen.

Definitely interesting and worth looking into, but you can also get 3-6-9 from elsewhere:

Another thing is that oil has the greatest calorie density, and without it we’d have a hard time meeting energy requirements. Not impossible, though.

Can people with lactose intolerance consume it?


#4

3-6-9, damn they fine


#5

ofcourse they can. There is no dairy in hemp seeds.


#6

Do you have an idea about pricing?
If it’s reasonable - I’d love to substitute Flax in my blend.


#7

The main ingredient in that powdered hemp milk is Nutiva hemp seed, which is pretty much this stuff. They also make hemp oil. I’ll try to find better nutrition info.

edit: it has already been sourced, you can add it to your recipe.

hemp protein powder is different, they strip alot of the nutrients and keep the protein. the protein powder has much lower fat content and omega 3-6-9’s.

This is what hemp seeds nutrition profile looks like:

http://www.hempfoods.com.au/new/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Hemp-Seeds-250_BACK.png

Protein powder contains 6 grams of omega 6’s for every 100 grams of powder and 2 grams of omega 3.

The hemp seeds contain 30 grams of omega 6 and 10 grams of omega 3 for every 100 grams.

Also the fat content in the protein powder is only 12 grams per 100 grams of powder whereas the hemp seeds are 52 grams per 100 grams of seeds.

The hemp seeds are a better substitute to your oils.

You could make the hemp milk, its a very similar process to making almond milk. Put the milk in a food dehydrator to dry it out and turn it into hemp milk powder.

I found this link here: http://www.shoporganic.com/product/simply-hemp-organic-powdered-hempmilk/soy_and_grain_beverages

Its better to make you own however if you are selling commercially, you will save alot of money that way. I can’t find any similar products to simply hemp milk anyway as you can’t buy that product anymore.

The ingriediants they used can be seen here:

Also flax seeds have a bad ratio of omega 6 - 3.

The recommend ratio is around 3:1 omega 6 to 3’s. Flaxseeds are around 0.2 : 1 whereas hemp seeds are around 3:1. They have the perfect ratio.

Our body needs both Omega 6 and Omega 3,
so the combination of Flax & Hemp that we use provides a perfect amount.

But more & more I think of the Hemp milk - I come to the conclusion that’s just well ground hemp seeds.
They add some stevia, vanilla & cinnamon for flavor,
plus coconut for colour to make it looking like milk,
but these ingredients are not so necessary.

So @tiempo_original - you might be right - we can make it ourselves.
FYI: we use http://www.bobsredmill.com/hulled-hemp-seed.html as the source of Hemp.
