Almost all of these suggestions are interesting and great, however, my one wish is that whatever they plan on doing, whether it is in fact to make a solid bar version, I truly hope they do not ever entirely do away with a Soylent 2.0 like product, as in pre-mixed, bottled, drinkable version. My reasoning behind this is for me, Soylent is not just something I've picked up to try, I have a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE).
In EOE, quoting Mayo Clinic: "a type of white blood cell (eosinophil) builds up in the lining of the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach (esophagus). This buildup, which is a reaction to foods, allergens or acid reflux, can inflame or injure the esophageal tissue. Damaged esophageal tissue can lead to difficulty swallowing or cause food to get caught when you swallow."
Because of my diagnosis of this disease, I am limited on what I can eat, and even with those things I can eat, on many occasions I do get choked. This causes me to take longer to eat, eat less, and not get all the proper nutrition. Seeing as it is a chronic disease, it gets better and worse from time to time, and there are days where I can barely eat anything. At the moment things are not the best and I am doing 100% Soylent.
When I first discovered Soylent it was like a damn second coming of Jesus. I am extremely thankful to have Soylent and I would not know what to do without it. Thus, whatever the changes are with Soylent and other products, I just truly hope for my sake, as well as others out there using it for similar medical conditions, that you folks at Soylent do not do away with and discontinue a finely textured, pre-mixed, 2.0-type liquid version for only a solid version. Thank you for everything!
P.S. I have never met or personally know anyone else who has Eosinophilic Esophagitis, besides all the people on forums online, therefore if anyone out there has this disease and is using Soylent to help, please come forward and have a chat with me, I'd love to hear your story and share experiences. And if any of you have any questions whatsoever at all, feel free to ask away. Thank you, again!
