Research and engineering. It's our favorite part of eating.
We thought a lot about what goes into Soylent, so you wouldn't have to.
Soy Protein Isolate
Soy protein isolate provides a smooth texture and robust amino acid profile.
Sunflower oil is a high-quality source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats like omega 3, 6 and 9 and contains 0g of trans fat per serving.
A slow-metabolizing disaccharide synthesized from beets offers sustained energy without the spikes of refined sugar.
Vitamins + minerals
Each serving of Soylent Powder provides an array of micronutrients.
20g | Protein
20 grams of highly digestible soybean protein = Plenty of all of the essential amino acids, and the only plant protein to achieve the "Perfect 1.0" protein digestibility score so you get more from your plant protein. But it's not just all about nutrition; Our soy protein has a neutral flavor and creamy texture -- it's not gritty or chalky, like pea or rice protein.
28 | Essential Micros
Our cells need vitamins and minerals to get through the day. Soylent drinks have 20% of the recommended value of 28 essential micronutrients, so you don't have to think about nutrition. And we make sure to include nutrients that many of us don't get enough of -- like Vitamin D, potassium and choline.
330mg | Omega-3 PUFA
Soylent is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFA. Soylent's PUFA powerhouses include the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. Our plant-based fats are free of trans fatty acids, and are widely studied for their health benefits.
Soylent is designed with a 'slow-carb' approach. Sure, it provides an excellent source of dietary fiber to aid digestion, with 6 grams per serving. And, instead of cane sugar, glucose or fructose, we use isomaltulose, a slowly digestible sugar. The result? Steady, sustained energy, without heavy spikes in blood sugar.
Animal-Free | Plant Based
Soylent is plants. We're all about harnessing the nutrition of plants. No animals are harmed when its comes to Soylent, and who wouldn't moo to that?

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I incorporate Soylent into my diet?
We don’t want you to think of Soylent as an all-or-nothing proposition, a diet plan, or a trendy cleanse. Instead, think of Soylent as an antidote for the “Food Void.” A food void is any time you’re stuck without access to a good, quality meal. We’re not trying to replace the meals you love, but rather to save you from dining on a vending machine lunch or spending $10 on a limp salad. Most people find success replacing a few meals a week — often starting with breakfasts (have you tried our Cafe line?), or keeping a few bottles of Soylent on hand for when life gets busy. Some use Soylent for just about every meal, except when dining out or with friends, while others grab a bottle from the store when they’re on the go. See what works best for you!
How do I prepare a serving of Soylent Powder?
Our favorite way to get the best taste and texture is using a blender and chilling the mixed product for 20 minutes. But using a shaker bottle works really well too! Helpful how-to for using a shaker bottle... 1. Mix. For an 8oz serving, mix ½ cup (60g) of Soylent with 1 cup of water. For a 12oz serving, mix ⅔ cup (90g) of Soylent with 1½ cup of water. Each scoop of powder is approximately ⅓ cup, if you’re using a Soylent Scoop. For exact measurements, use a scale and measure by weight. 2. Shake. Use a shaker bottle or blender. Prepare with ice or chill before serving. 3. Drink. Store any unfinished, mixed Soylent in the fridge. Consume within two days.
Can Soylent help me improve my diet?
Soylent is not designed as a diet program, but is designed to provide roughly 20% daily recommended micronutrients* (based on an average 2000 calorie diet), plus a balance of fats, carbs, and plant-based protein. It is modular nutrition that can fit into a variety of diets. If you choose to replace less nutritious meals with Soylent, it may help improve your overall diet. It is important to stress that every person’s nutritional requirements are different and there is no one-size-fits-all plan for a healthy diet. For more information on a healthy diet, please consult a professional such as a registered dietician or your doctor. *See product pages for complete nutrition facts.
Great value. Solid taste that grows on you. Recommend.
Use it to supplement meals when I'm busy or feeling lazy. Taste is a solid 7, don't want it to taste like much anyway. Great for what it is.
The bag seal is easily clogged, which makes it a bit of an inconvenience to fully close the package. Otherwise no complaints, super convenient meal replacement.
Like Soylent powder which I can supplement with protein powder, fruit, etc. I use 1/wk but can never get the subscription right (does not allow custom frequency).
