Does soylent go stale? I’ve ordered a large batch back in late July and I’ve been loving it. I’ve been a fan of the idea long before I actually got to try some and soylent’s flavour and nutritional effects have lived up to expectations.
Recently, I opened a new bag of 1.6 powder and found it odd that there was no sweet soylent smell. I mixed it, noticing that before the blending process the powder sort of flaked in the water in a way I had not noticed before. Finally, when I added too much water (I’ve been having some hydration trouble) there was no flavour at all. The next batch I mixed with less water, expecting the sweet and distinct ‘cookie dough’ flavour. It tasted more like soylent but distinctly different, less pleasant in both flavour and texture. For a while I thought I was only imagining it. Eating this bag hasn’t made me sick, but it doesn’t sit easy in the stomach and I have these slight pangs of pain or internal discomfort when eating it on an empty stomach. When left in the fridge overnight it quickly went sour. Unrefrigerated, a meal of it went sour in about 8 hours as opposed to the usual 24. I opened a second bag (I’m on my second of two boxes) and found the same result. I’m concerned that the rest of my supply is in a similar condition.
It’s distinctly not rancid, but something is definitely wrong. Has anyone experienced similar problems?
