The maker of Soylent, the meal replacement shake that sparked controversy when it launched last year, claims that it will allow people to never eat again. Each Soylent shake is beige-colored, practically tasteless, and contains all of the vitamins and nutrients you need to subsist on for one day. Now, the latest innovation in food-free technology is Soylent 2.0, which makes Soylent conveniently portable.Previously, Soylent was only available in powdered form, and you had to mix it yourself. But Soylent 2.0 comes in a ready-to-drink package. As an added bonus, this version of Soylent is made from algae.
“It has been an exciting year for the Soylent team, and thanks to my fantastic co-founders and colleagues we have built the foundations of a strong business,” said Rob Rhinehart, Soylent co-founder and CEO, in a statement on the Soylent website. “Soylent 2.0 is just the beginning of our continued expansion as we endeavor to improve the capability and efficiency of our industry through research and development, toward a future where food is abundant and its production is transparent.”
Rhinehart claims that this version is more environmentally friendly because half of its fat energy comes from algae, a farm-free and animal-substance-free food source. The new Soylent also has a low glycemic index and its protein comes from soy. Each bottle of Soylent 2.0 contains 20 percent of your daily vitamins and nutrients, so you’d only have to drink five of these peculiar shakes to get your nutrients.
