I made what seemed to be a pretty normal batch of Soylent my first time; get a package out, pour it in the pitcher, add tap water, shake, add oil, shake, and leave it in the fridge. It had separated a bit when I checked on it in the morning; I gave it a thorough shaking before I tried it. However, in my glass and in the pitcher, there was this “slime” at the bottom: a dark-brown, thick but slightly runny powder-fiber-water mix. And undrinkable, because its texture triggered my gag reflex.
Since then, I’ve tried making individual batches, with varying amounts of water; nothing seems to make the slime go away. I mixed up a batch with so little water that there was powder floating on top; the slime had appeared by the time I unscrewed the pitcher, poured the Soylent into the glass, and drank half of it. Adding more water just makes the top part more watery and the slime appears on the bottom faster.
Has anyone else seen or tried to drink this “Soylent slime”? Do you know what it is? Is it necessary to drink/eat it to get the full nutrition, or is it safe to toss down the sink?
