Soylent in stores and places where bread is sold


#1

Bread is staple food in many Asian cultures. Soylent is nutritionally completer than bread. Widespread distribution of soylent will increase adoption.


#2

I could honestly eat bread for every meal, or just eat it all the time without even stopping.


#3

You’d get fat.

Bread is considered so important in our country that my maternal grandmother calls the meals as bread: “Sabah ekmeği”(Morning’s bread in English) for breakfast for example.


#5

In the winter, when a storm is looming, the grocery stores sell out of milk and bread. Maybe, in the future, the staple that sells out will be Soylent.


#6

I’ll have a bunch of boxes in my basement. :grin:


#7

I can’t imagine a better food product to have in one’s disaster/emergency kit than Soylent.


#8

Well…


#9

Me too!..


#10

Why milk??? If the storm knocks out the power, the milk will go bad very soon without refrigeration! I’d expect the less perishable foods to sell out more…like Soylent!


#11

It’s winter. You can set the milk outside, or in a cold part of the house/garage.


#12

Bread is also a staple food in many European and African cultures, and in North and South America as well. I think bread is a staple food in most places across the world.


#13

Ancient literature often uses “bread” to mean “food.” “Give us this day our daily bread.”


#14

In the Middle East, a popular form of milk is powder milk. It’s hard to find in North America but I usually end up finding it in small Asian or Mexican groceries.

@hasen - I’m not familiar with Nido, but I have never had a problem finding either Carnation or Country Fresh brands of powdered milk at my local grocers (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=powdered+milk). I’ve lived in many difference areas of the United States, I don’t know about Canada or Mexico.

@biab Yea I know about Carnation, but it’s pretty bad. Tastes awful. Always skim milk. Not instant; always clumps.


#17

Powdered milk is readily available here, too. Usually sold in large bags in the baking section of common grocery stores. Once prepared, it really doesn’t taste any different from “real” milk. Never had any clumping issues, but I usually buy the store brands rather than Carnation. I wish I could find powdered almond milk, though. I don’t like cow’s milk or the pudding poop associated with it.

It didn’t occur to me to put the milk outside in the winter because normally when we experience a winter storm we try not to open any doors unless absolutely necessary because we want to trap the heat inside…sometimes the snow also makes opening the door a safety hazard. I wouldn’t want to go digging for milk under a snowbank during a storm either. But maybe that’s because I’m not a milk person.


#18

@hasen - And here I thought all powdered milk clumped! Thanks for letting us know we’re getting the skim end of the powered milk market! :wink:

RE: Milk outside in a storm - Most places that I’ve lived had an area where the wind is less of a concern, but which is still at frigid temperatures. For example, where I live now, my garage basically becomes one big fridge. I’ve also lived in several houses where one of the doors or windows had a windbreaks around them; at the worst, snow would fall into these areas, but if we needed to keep something chill, we would simply push it into the snow pile.

Got me wondering, and guess what - http://www.amazon.com/Ecomil-Almond-Powder-Instant-400g/dp/B0028VK5WC/ , http://www.amazon.com/Hong-Style-Almond-Powder-21-1oz/dp/B003A7EHU4/ , http://www.amazon.com/Almond-Powder-Drink-Mix-21-16oz/dp/B009WAEP78/ (I obviously can’t say whether they’re any good or not, but they do exist, as does coconut milk powder, soy milk powder, rice milk powder, and something called badam milk powder, all of which mysteriously come up in a search for “almond milk powder” - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_1?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Apowdered+almond+milk&keywords=powdered+almond+milk)
