TLDR Add whey protein!
I’ve seen quite a few reports of the slimy texture of 1.4. I’ve been with Soylent since 1.3, and definitely noticed it upon switching to the new version.
While the texture hasn’t been a huge problem for me, I did find a solution that seems to do away with most of the sliminess. I’m pretty active and needed additional protein anyway so I did an experiment.
Day 1: Made Soylent at approximately 6pm. Tasted it, no sliminess.
Day 2 Morning: After sitting overnight, there was a definite increase in sliminess. I continued to have for breakfast.
Day 2 Night: Added one scoop of NOW whey protein isolate (unflavored) and shook the shaker bottle vigorously. Had for dinner, and there seemed to be a significant decrease in sliminess.
Day 3 Morning: Still significantly less sliminess. The consistency of the Soylent was more like milk at this point.
I think this may have been mentioned before but I just wanted to put it out there, as it may be of help to those who dislike the consistency.
