Apparently, there is a technique where you can add tapioca powder to oils and they’ll be absorbed, forming a powder.
This would really help us DIYers who would like to be able to measure all ingredients beforehand as well as probably reducing packaging costs for the official Soylent in which the oils are currently separate.
I’m at work so I don’t have time to find links to this method, but I’ve verified it.
I think Myarter has it right. You still may need to worry about oxidation issues with the oil. There also is the high bioavailablity of the sugars in maltodextrin to be worried about. However, in theory there is no reason why this couldn’t work.
It might work out well with oat powder, but when you’re in a situation with oils absorbed into powder like that, the exposed surface area of the oil is exponentially higher than sitting in a container, and so oxidization happens faster. Keeping it chilled and/or vacuum sealed would definitely help. If you mixed it in a CO2 chamber before sealing, you’d get optimal longevity.
i think of more of a month or so of olive oil mixed in 30 bags(1 for every day) vacuum sealing it in aluminium bags (0.05$ a peace) and having it in a cold place
then taking out one bag of the oil+dextrose and the bag of the rest of the soylent on the day of mixing, or perhaps mixing it all in one bag.
wold that resolve the problem of oxidation of all the supplements?
100g of maltox with 60-100g of oil don’t seam so bad if you have other carbon sources, giving you a mix of fast and slow carbs probably with a low Glycogen Load
where can I get those aluminium bags this cheap?!!
even if you mix the oil with e.g. corn meal it powders quite well. Why use maltodextrin if its more or less shugar with high GI?
3)is oxidation really that fast and bad that even in a vacuum sealed bag the oil isnt safe? (folr two months lets say)
