The Soylent and flatulence thread


I’m curious about how the 50 beta testers have faired with any flatulence from soylent. I know one article I read where a guy who drank soylent for a week said it was pretty bad the first couple days.

For me, every protein or weight gain shake I’ve ever tried has given me gas. I recently tried pea protein and yep, same problem. The past few days I’ve been having Spirutein shakes which is a combo of pea/rice/soy proteins. It’s pretty bad. It could be that my body simply can’t handle additional protein so it sits inside undigested. Fingers crossed that the official soylent is easy to digest.
