I’ve never used this community for Soylent but I’ve been drinking it for some time. I mostly just stick to reddit’s Soylent community for info and discourse.
I recently discovered mold on a bottle from a recent batch of Soylent 2.0. So I started a Reddit discussion around the topic to raise awareness of the mold issue that I think we all hoped had gone away. It was suggested to me that I repost over here for higher visibility. Hopefully there can be some positive discussions around this…
Anyways, here’s the Reddit post if you’d like to read the existing discussions:
And the original post itself starts below this line
This is the third time I’ve found mold in or around Soylent 2.0. This was on the outside, it didn’t make it past their seal… But, I don’t exactly like the idea of having something growing from the opening to the bottle I am supposed to drink from.
This batch came from Soylent but I’ve been moving to Amazon Launchpad for Prime delivery. I’m going to send them this so they know Rosa Labs still can’t keep mold or whatever off of their product.
I’ve been able to walk into any grocery store for decades and find 100 sealed drinks of all varieties made by companies that have discovered the technology to deliver mold free products to their customers, so I can’t wrap my head around why this keeps happening again.
I don’t know about anyone else but I’m done with this product. Three separate instances of mold outside the seal, and in the earlier case, inside the seal, is enough for me.
tldr; check your bottles
