Soylent… solving the worlds hungry?

I heard of Soylent in the general tech news but it wasn’t till I spent a dinner and cocktails with Ryan that I really thought about it in any detail.

We were talking about it and was it going to make a difference to world hunger, make everyone healthy. But I do wondering what it tastes like. But it was hard for me to take it seriously not because its grown in a lab. No, its because it made with pea protein. Pea protein, has to be something I’m surely allergic to?

Well good news, it seems to be made of something different and the nutrition list recently went public. Unfortunately its contains fish oil, but as Ryan said it can be substituted for vegans. The nutritional values look pretty good…
