After my recent disappointments with soylent, I started reading as much as I could about different diets (particular fascinated by all-meat diets) in order to figure out what changes could be made to fix my problems with it. Human breast milk and water seem to be the only two things almost universally agreed upon as being fit for human consumption. After a few lazy attempts at trying to find the composition of breast milk, I tried to find ingredients in a baby formula.
With a big obvious facepalm I saw the first ingredient listed was Corn Maltodextrin and realized Soylent is basically just Adult Formula. While every baby fomula and medical nutrition powders like Ensure I found cost significantly more than Soylent by volume, it’s probably just the result of not buying directly from the supplier.
If not for the price and not wanting to be sick for my new job I’d test the effects of living on baby formula for a week and see how it compares to soylent. Any thoughts?
