What is your approach to producing nutritious food?Updated 2 years ago

Our goal is to engineer nutritious food that is optimized for modern consumers’ lifestyles and budgets. To achieve this goal, every one of our ingredients is carefully selected and vetted to ensure the right balance of quality, food safety, flavor, and nutritional function. 

When we created Soylent, we took an empirical approach. Meaning everything we’ve done has been consistently based on findings by the scientific community. Soylent is designed to include the essential macros & micros based on recommendations by the Institute of Medicine and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Nutrition is not one-size-fits-all and recommended daily dietary intakes vary based on several factors including gender, age, health, and activity level. We recommend checking out some publicly available databases, like the Dietary Guidelines for Americans for more information, or your doctor, dietician, or nutritionist to ensure you are consuming a well-balanced diet.
