So after a long break from official Soylent (last time was 1.0) I managed to get some 1.4 from Keenin only required I paid the shipping. I live in Denmark, so I still ended up having to pay quite a bit, specially since customs basically doubled the price. About $80 shipping and then $80 in customs.
Package arrived about 14 days after it arrived to Denmark because customs took their sweet time.
First mix: I decided to simply take 1/4 of a bag and put directly into a 600ml blender bottle, adding about 500ml water to the Soylent. (More than instructions)
It mixed quite easily, and I had my first taste.
Cardboard was the first taste I noticed, not undrinkable… But not tasty either
It wasn’t too salty, it wasn’t too sweet… not my batch at least, with the amount of water I added. But I will say I preferred the flavor 1.0 had with the vanillin, even though I thought 1.0 needed slightly less vanilla flavor.
Post Soylent experience: The good old 2 day tension headache returned, just like with 1.0 and Queal… Obviously there is something in them that my tendons become tense because of. It’s been 3 day now and I only had 3/4 of a bag so far. (Skipped today, had 2/4 the second day and 1/4 the first)
I plan to drink some more tomorrow and see if these tensions will go away slowly, but I do wonder what ingredient is the cause. (My original guess was the potassium because much higher than what I normally get, but could be anything)
Also: I noticed that my stomachs acid production is quite high after some Soylent… It had been a while since last I had acid reflux (back when I drank plenty of cola) but it feels like too much Soylent could end up giving me some acid reflux again… Will see what happens. I have IBS, GERD and a sensitive stomach so good luck me
GERD makes me taste the cardboard taste for hours, which makes me hope they find a way to either make it more neutral in the future, or at least better tasting.
May edit this post later as I wrote it from my phone, and it may be filled with nonesense
