So in the beginning of july I came across a new Soylent alternative here in Europe that is ready to drink, I decided to give it a go while I wait for the official Soylent to become available…
Saturo is the name, with 3 varients: chocolate, plain and coffee. (I went with chocolate)
Having tried a few of the other options such as Joylent/Jimmy Joy, Queal and MANA (plus some of the earlier versions of official Soylent 1.0, 1.3, 1.4 or was it 1.5?) I will say that this has been my favorite so far. I really like the rich chocolate taste and I feel just fine after almost a month of it being 50-75% of my calories.
In my past experiences with some of the other alternatives, I often didn’t feel so well after some time.
It seems they are following a higher fat and protein ratio and lower carbs compared to the recommended and 500 calories contain 5 mcg vitamin D (100%). This personally pleases me a lot since I have a severe vitamin D deficiency.
Currently the price is 3.15€ per 500 calorie for the chocolate flavor (without -10% off for subscription) but I am worried it might rise to 3.95€ As the site has that price crossed over for now.
I look forward to comparing it to Soylent 2.0 once they begin shipping to Europe (without an expensive reshipper) and figuring out which one I will stick with after that.
Their site is at www.saturo.eu for other Europeans wanting to try it
