Why Soy Protein?

8 days ago
Soylent takes science seriously. That’s why, before we chose a protein source for our meal replacement shakes and meal replacement powders, we did a lot of, well, science. That meant researching factors like nutrition, bioavailability, sustainability, and environmental friendliness. All our research and study led us to soy isolate.

Hunger vs. Food Insecurity

18 days ago
We’ve all been hungry. You’re probably a little hungry right now, or you could go for a light snack at least. Well, hunger isn’t the same as food insecurity. For folks that are “food insecure” physical feelings of hunger are accompanied by limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy lifestyle. People who are food insecure don’t always know where they’ll get their next meal.

A Case for Blue

21 days ago
When we launched our ready-to-drink product back in 2015, we had one flavor — Original. Having one flavor simplifies a lot of things. It simplifies your supply chain, your naming conventions, customer decision making process, and (most relevant to everything you’re about to read) color. Original debuted in an all white bottle with a black cap and emblazoned with a small Soylent logo and the text “400 kcal.” These were simpler times. As the company has grown, so have our product offerings, and most notably, our flavor lineup. I can promise you much care and consideration goes into how we present these new flavors to the world. This brings us to our newest flavor — Vanilla.

It’s a Berry Good Day

4 months ago
Sometimes a flavor so good comes along, you’ve got to shout it from the rooftops (and/or the blog posts). That’s why we’re excited to announce the latest addition to the lineup: Soylent Strawberry!! Our new fruit flavor is like the strawberry milk you loved as a kid — except Soylent Strawberry has 20g of protein, 20% of your daily recommended micronutrients, and your mom doesn’t have to make it for you.

Proudly Made with GMOs

1 year ago
As a society, we struggle to satisfy the global demand for food. One in nine people across the globe suffer from hunger, and in order to keep pace with the rate of population growth, we will need to be able to produce 70 percent more food by 2050. We can increase agricultural output by allotting more wilderness to farms and pastures, or by making existing farmland more productive. Crop technologies such as genetic engineering—the transfer of foreign genes by nonsexual methods—can help to satisfy the global demand for nutrients by optimizing the productivity of agriculture to increase the accessibility of food worldwide.
