It means just that - adding oil to the Soylent mix is not an acceptable option. Something in supplement capsule form is fine, but adding actual oil to the mix itself is not acceptable.
My understanding (it’s my partner who is doing this research, I’m just the forum communicator) is that the quantities of DHA/EPA are so small that we would have to consume huge quantities of the supplements, and the cost would be astronomical. These supplements are designed to be just that - supplements, and not to replace your entire requirement of the elements in them. So if you are looking to do that, then the amounts you have to take get huge.
With the Ovega 3s, by my calculations it would require about 10 gelcaps to get the daily EPA dose, and about 20 to get the daily DHA dose. So even if I’m fine with taking so many capsules and could somehow get the DHA amount without doubling up on the EPA amount, at about $0.25 per capsule that works out to over $5 per day per person just in supplements based on pricing I see at Vitacost.
So impractical and cost prohibitive. Gotta find some other source. Anyone have any to suggest?
