🧙 Lucian Marin You have to boil Soylent if you don't want to get sick. Germs get destroyed then. I doubt it's an ingredient problem, more like germs problem. Also, mixing it with milk can make it more consistent than mixing the powder with water. I will never consume it myself. I prefer to make my own blends in the winter season: hot milk, bananas, cocoa based powder, etc. If I replace milk with soy milk I basically get my own version of Soylent.

Mark Dain I'm currently hooked on Huel which is from a British company but when I move to the USA, I'm not sure I'll switch over to Soylent anymore. First it was the Soylent 2.0 bottles (which are kinda wasteful right?) making people sick and now the powder is doing that too. That never used to happen and I wonder if quality is just dropping there.

Martijn Soylent is GMP certified so I would not expect to find any germs in there that you wouldn't also fin in your "cocoa based powder". Not that I am eating it either at their current price. When they first came out and said they would be getting cheaper (&c.&c.) I was very interested. Now they are still at almost $10/day for a Soylent diet. I definitely do not spend $10/day on my usual shopping.

🧙 Lucian Marin They say they use raw ingredients for the powder. I won't consume those unbaked with or without germs. And there's a reason why soy milk or milk is pasteurized.
