New user here, having just starting out with 1.4.
I have been following Soylent for a while, but was turned off by the long wait time between order and receipt. As soon as that time became something that I considered reasonable, I jumped.
My wife and I are both using Soylent, and, so far, we both love it. (She tends to add cocoa powder to hers, I drink mine plain.)
The problem that we’ve discovered is in how we consume throughout the day. Neither of us really has a place to store a pitcher during the day, so we’ve each been taking a bag & scoop to & from work, and mixing our own single servings (or half servings) as needed. However, we’re finding that the bags aren’t very suitable for travelling, as the zipper tends to come open randomly. (Probably due to the bag bending in certain ways during transport.)
So far, we’ve been lucky, and not had any incidents of spillage, but it would be nice to insure against that possibility.
One solution I’ve thought of is to portion the bags into smaller packages, either individual Ziploc bags, or smaller Tupperware-style containers, or something similar.
However, that makes me wonder about possible degradation scenarios, and how realistic they may be.
Is exposure to light (during the course of a day or so) a major concern for nutrient retention, or am I just being overly paranoid?
