Forgive me if this specific question has been discussed, I searched but couldn’t find an exact answer.
Does anyone know the amount of Omega 3 fish oils, broken down into EPA and DHA? I went to my Dr. for a physical today and explained Soylent to him, and showed him the nutritional info and ingredients. He seemed concerned about 2 things:
- The packaging didn’t specifically call out Omega 3, and thus he was convinced the oil was there only for fat. He suggested I drop the oil and take an Omega 3 supplement instead. He said if I eat a couple of “normal” meals a week (which I do), that will provide me with plenty of fat that would otherwise be missing from soylent.
(His second concern was Vitamin D, he thinks even 100% might be too low. But my blood test will be able to show those levels so I’m not worried).
So, in regards to oil - I know it’s there for Omega 3, but do we have specific % or measurements? Is there any reason I should or shouldn’t take his advice?
Part of me likes his advice for calorie counting reasons - dropping the oil drops a lot of calories. But I’d rather make sure I get the nutrients I need.
