And greetings from a Finnish Soylent team!
We’ve been very inspired by Soylent drink and Rob’s vision of creating an easily consumable total nutrition drink. We have been enjoying Soylent for few months now. We even put together a pop-up restaurant in Helsinki, Finland, during previous restarurantday.org and sold Soylent to over 200 customers in the city center That was lot of fun!
At the same time, our ambition have been to take the recipe to the next level.
We’ve observed that many people share Rob’s vision of having The One Drink to replace their busy meals, but many people are looking for organic options instead of synthetic recipe. During the last two months, we have been developing an organic version of Soylent, yet having the same nutritionally complete philosophy like with the original recipe. To make it practical, we’ve sourced every ingredient in powder format, too. And we’ve succeeded pretty well.
Here’s the list of ingredient used in “Organic Soylent”.
The main source for carbohydrates is brown rice flour. Fats come from a nut blend, cocoa and plant-origin sources completing the fat profile. (Nuts contribute also highly to the micronutrients but shorten the best before day due to oxidation). About half of the protein comes from whey, the rest from the 20-something ingredient list.
In our recipe, micronutrients and vitamin blend can be built with the same logic - from organic sources. A blend of Nordic herbs and berries, spinach, algaes, raw cocoa powder and a bunch of other ingredients alongside with the aforementioned macro ingredients build a balanced nutrition profile comparable to Soylent.
Also, with minor modifications we could make the recipe suitable for people on Paleo diet. Is this something you’d be interested in?
All in all - our vision has been to develop organic alternative for Soylent from healthy nutritient-dense high quality foods instead of minimizing food budget to absolute minimum. Would be great to hear your feedback about this. Would you be interested in to have organic option despite the higher prices of ingredients?
Proudly on behalf of our 6-person team from Finland,
