It’s been a busy year here at Soylent. Not only have we had some exciting product launches, we’ve also thrown our inaugural “Tomorrow’s Food Today” events. At these events, we bring together food-tech specialists, food scientists, and emerging food-tech startups to talk the future of food, sustainability, and more.
Do you have a perfect morning routine? Cool. Good for you. For the rest of us, a little help never hurt anybody. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce Cafe Mocha Powder! It’s breakfast and coffee in one and our first ever Powder with caffeine and l-theanine.
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.
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.
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.
When we introduced Soylent Drink in August of 2015, we wanted to get our new format into the hands of excited customers as soon as possible. At the time, the best option was to use existing, off-the-shelf stock bottles.
Hint: it’s us. Soylent is now available in Kroger-owned stores! That means we’re popping up in Kroger divisions all over the country, places like Ralphs, Fred Meyer, King Sooper, and Frys! Just head to the Nutrition Section at participating locations and you’ll see us on the shelves.
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.
This week, #SoylentForGood is proudly renewing our support for World Food Program USA for the third year in a row. Without you, our loyal customers, we wouldn’t be able to fund such programs, so we also wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU.
The Earth is big, and we humans are small. We knowingly live on the most vulnerable planet is modern history, yet visualizing our individual responsibility can still be a challenge. But our actions matter.
