“Our founders named the product Soylent, in homage to the novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison. It’s a dystopian sci-fi novel that explores population growth and world resources.” (https://soylent.com/pages/about-the-company)
I thought the name “Soylent” was just a blend of “soy” and “lentils”, some of the main ingredients in the first iterations, and that Soylent Green references were just the most commonly found joke found in Facebook comment threads. Is that not the case?
