# Volume of a serving

#1

Simple question: what is the volume of a single serving?
Rough dimensions might be useful as well.

I’m considering the possibility of using this to cut food weight on expeditions.
The caloric content is a bit low for my needs, but that’s an easy enough fix.

A full day of unmixed Soylent is 560gm.

Good to know.
My question was about the volume though.
I want to know how much space they’ll take up in my pack or kayak.

#4

Think Ziploc sandwich bag

#5

Do we know how Soylent is going to be packaged yet? By daily servings or in bulk containers?

#6

What is 560 grams of Soylent in volume? (Cups, fluid ounces, or milliliters)

I don’t wish to buy a scale just to find out how much should be used, and I assume it does not weigh the same as water, and so is not 560 milliliters. I would guess it would be just shy of half a liter though.
Also, what size of a person would that be for? A 100 lb, 5’ tall woman would require a bit less than a 200 lb, 6’6" tall man.

I too am interested in the volume of soylent. Seems like an easy thing to measure. @JulioMiles?

560gm would be a full day. A single serving is about 185gm or about 1 3/4 cups dry. Including adding 20ml of the oil. You would add about 750ml or 3 cups of water. This would be about 650 calories. These calculations are based on the 2000 calorie daily serving split into 3 serving. How it is being packaged right now is as a daily pack. I’ve heard there may be a scoop to portion out servings. I’ll let@JulioMiles confirm that.

So about 2 and a half pints per day. Thanks!
