Hi guys and girls, I’ve been sifting through the mountains of information available here and elsewhere, and I think I’m finally getting close to a v0.1 recipe…
Here’s my recipe breakdown so far, I’ve decided to use a whole milk base as longevity once mixed isn’t a huge concern for me (the idea is to mix it and chuck it in the fridge, I’ve heard chilled Soylent tends to taste better anyway, as well as going some way towards neutralising phytic acid), and it has great nutritional value. I’m planning on topping up with water to reach my daily water target, hopefully this won’t affect the taste too much.
At the moment my main deficiencies are chromium, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate, as well as sulfur, which I’m not too concerned about as it should be present in some of the other ingredients, but is damn near impossible to find information on. If I start to see symptoms of deficiency, I can always add some MSM.
Fiber is also a little on the low side, but I’m not too concerned about that at the moment.
Vitamin C is easy, I’m happy to have a chewable tablet or 2 each day. Which leaves chromium, vitamin A and folate. Has anyone got any suggestions for those? So far I can’t seem to find a good source of chromium that doesn’t mess up everything else.
Magnesium is on the high side, but I’m not sure how I can reduce that while keeping everything else at or above 100%.
Any feedback is appreciated at the moment, I plan on going a whole week (maybe 2) on solely Soylent, so there’s no way I’m going to make it without having it thoroughly vetted by the Soylent community!
Cheers in advance!
