Is this your first batch of Soylent?
How did you prepare it?
In a blender according to the instructions - 1.6 litres of water (mineral water) at room temperature along with the oil.
I then waited a few hours to overnight before consuming it.
Have you tried blender to obtain a smoother texture?
Yes, but I can still sense the grittiness of it.
What specific taste are you getting that is unpleasant?
I can sense everything in it and it’s hard to describe what’s making me gag, but it’s almost like it’s not well put together?
It’s hard to put it into words, but I’ll try to do so. So at first the smell is pleasant, but it’s almost as if it’s hiding something and then when you start drinking it - it starts sweet in a musky, earthy way (don’t really have a word for it) but it’s almost as if it’s masking these really metallic set of flavours that make me gag when I try to drink them. Does that make any sense?
I unfortunately have the same affliction when I drink cocktails. What’s good for most people has hints of bitterness or what not for me, which is why I can’t drink sadly. It’s the curse of being a super taster.
Have you tried other flavorings like cocoa powder or peanut butter? Can you describe the taste you are experiencing? Sweet, bitter,salty,sour?
Cinnamon? It didn’t go so well. Made me gag even more. Although that might have more to do with the quantity of cinnamon I use as opposed to the Soylent itself.
I tried above.
Also, did you let it sit in the refrigerator overnight before adding the oil? That definitely helps with the grittiness.
Nope! I’ll do it with this batch. Thanks!
If the bags you received have the serial/batch number of M14302P01 10.15 that is probably why it tastes so bad.
The batch isn’t bad. The problem is just that I’m a super taster.
