I just recently purchased People Chow. The only modification I made was using Canola Oil for my oil source, and everything else the same.
First meal of People Chow was good. I didn’t seem to have any problems, maybe smelly gas. I’m on second meal of People Chow from the same batch, when I notice an orange layer of powder on top that just spontaneously appeared after maybe 15 seconds after blending via magic bullet! See album here. I’m kind of scared to drink this–has anyone ever encountered this before?
I did NOT notice this in the first meal (same batch/day of mix). The only thing I can think of is that I didn’t blend the first meal via magic bullet. Why:
At first I thought it was the Maseca Masa–I noticed small yellow/orange particles among other things. Though when resuspending Masa alone with water, it didn’t seem to be the case.
I then added my oil source (Canola Oil) to the Masa only+water, and that didn’t seem to be the case either.
Ingredients are all new, two days old to be exact. Nothing seems to smell bad, except the choline bitrate (which people say should be kind of fishy anyway?).
I don’t think it’s a mixing thing either–I’m very sure that I added the correct weight of every ingredient, and I have a new scale, tared and everything. I’m familiar with scales and grams/mg’s from working in research.
4b. I prepared a different batch of People Chow (a day’s worth) and I came across the same orange layer after blending that as well.
As a biology researcher, I decided to conduct an experiment. From the same batch, I mixed another cup of People Chow with water and tried NOT blending, there were small traces of orange stuff, but not to the same extent. Again, see album here. I’ll have to replicate this though.
Any advice or insight before then would be appreciated. Thank you!
