So, I have seen Soylent talked about once in the past. However, that was a DIY Soylent that you can mix yourself at home. Currently, I am consuming the consumer version of Soylent. The story goes, a couple of lazy computer programmers had bad eating habits and would skip meals, so they created a simple easy to prepare powdered meal and raised money through crowd funding. https://www.soylent.com/product/powder/ This idea isn't exactly new, there are abbot labs make of ensure and juven. As well as slimfast and other diet meal replacement shakes. However, as an emergency food, the price, calories and weight are awesome. Since I eat Soylent for 2/3 meals a day, I am cycling through the product on the shelf guaranteeing I will have fresh stock. Soylent is $1.90 per 500 cal. Each bag contains 2000 calories. Weight: 460 Gram. Shelf Life: 6 Months. (Calories Per Gram 9/4/4) *Spoiler* The reason they call Soylent, Soylent? For people to start talking about it. For all the movie aficionados, as we all know movies often come from a book, and Soylent Green is no different. I hate to spoil the fun but the movie was based off the book Make Room! Make Room! In the book the future is over populated and out of food, so Soylent is created - from Soy and Lentils. A twist M. Night Shyamalan wish he could come up with.
