ArsTechnica - One Week Eating Nothing But Soylent

(1/2) > >>

Soylent is a nutritionally complete meal replacement that is being created by Rob Rhinehart, a young engineer and entrepreneur... Rhinehart's intent is for Soylent to be a cheap, universally available meal replacement that can reduce a meal to a quick checkbox that you can tick and then move on with your day. Soylent isn't necessarily supposed to be the kind of thing you live on forever—though Rhinehart says he has been subsisting on Soylent for months with no apparent ill effects. Rather, this is something that you can consume when stopping to prepare food is inconvenient. Soylent, explains Rhinehart in the product's crowdfunding campaign page, is intended to almost be like the food equivalent of water—"cheap, healthy, convenient, and ubiquitous."

There are lots of claims being made about Soylent by lots of different folks, many good, many terrible. None of them have been independently evaluated by the FDA. Interest is definitely sky-high, though, as the Soylent crowdfunding campaign annihilated its $100,000 target, eventually racking up more than a million dollars in preorders. There's an official forum, an unofficial subreddit, and an online database where folks can see and contribute homebrew Soylent-like recipes while they wait for their official batches to ship starting in September.

But what does it taste like? How does it make you feel? What does it do to your, you know, um, poop and stuff?

Like a good reviews editor, I wanted to get my hands on some of this stuff and write about it..

Looks like fun reading.  An introductory post on the experiment is here:

It's made of people!
