Measuring scoops


#1

If I could buy a custom powder scoop that was labeled both in CC and in KCal I totally would. Just sayin’.

Edit: preferably made of glass, the plastic scoop I’m using now tends to attract crumbs to its rough lip.


#2

I never trust the scoop. I use a food scale.


#3

so, uh, you need a custom-made scoop? every “powder” is different in density, KCal etc.


#4

Not for ingredients, for the official recipe once it arrives. Only one powder, only one density.


#5

While “one powder, one density” isn’t necessarily true, especially for a powder with many ingredients, I have noticed that many companies that sell powdered nutrients currently include a labeled scoop or have one for sale. It might be a good idea for Soylent to do likewise.

As I understand it, the official Soylent will be packaged in “full day” pouches. There’ll be no need to measure anything, because the full pouch is already pre-formulated to your required daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

Right, that’s how my current soylent is as well. The thing is that I don’t own a blender, or bottles enough to store a day’s worth of soylent once the water is included. Instead, four times a day I scoop ~200cc of powder into a blender bottle, add water, shake and drink.
