I would like to see some different version of soylent. If there is one science where scientist don’t agree, then it is the science of human health. If you ask the advice from one health expert, he will tell you: “You should lower the carbs in your mixture of soylent.” If you ask an other health scientist, he will tell you, "no no no, you should lower the protein, too much protein is associated with this and this, carbs is the main fuel of the human body, you should add more carb instead! "
And you can go on like this. Some expert will say: “Saturated fats should be minimized in the diet”. An other one will say “Saturated fat is the healthiest of all fat.” One will say that it is health to consume 3000 mg of vitamin C, etc. etc. And the list goes on…
- cholersterol is essential vs unhealthy
- calcium rda is unhealthy vs consume liters of milk
- sugar is toxic vs the fuel designed for the human body
- PUFA are toxic vs PUFA are the healthiest fat
- animal proteins provide the human body with the master oxidant glutathione vs animal proteins are associated with this and that cancer
If I was soylent, I would stay complete out of this debate. But ask different experts to come with what kind of soylent they would recommend.
Ask Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences, and they will give you something that probably looks at soylent 1.0.
Ask Ray Peat, and he will give you this soylent:
high in sugar, caffeine, salt, vitamin C,almost no omega 3 or 6, high saturated fat, carrots fibre added, gelatin as primary protein source, added cholesterol, low in iron, etc .etc.
Ask Mercola, he will give this soylent:
high in fat, less than 25 gram of sugar, low in carbs, high in vitamin D3, vitamin K2, astaxanthine, etc. etc. and all of very expensive natural supplements
