/ Food substitute.
It appears you can live off it long term for a cost of around £40 a month.
Is this going to revolutionize the way we eat?
Is it from Charlton Heston Blumenthal?
No, definitly not. Perhaps for natural disaster areas or other emergencies, but I for one couldn't stand that for daily use.
You need to read the Soylent Oceanographic Survey Report, 2015 to 2019.
On The Register a while ago they lived on it for week. From memory they were underwhelmed, but did work well to cure a hangover.
Don't think it will take off for normal use as folk like variety. Totally has a place in the ration pack or famine mix market though.
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body.

The guy is Flakier than Boris Johnsons scalp. Total pish.
Every source I've read about Soylent inc. The Guardian, Wikipedia even Soylent themselves have described it as a "food substitute". I don't disagree with what you say I'm just going with what seems the general consensus.
There are plenty of people that find shopping, cooking and eating a chore. I also have no doubt that the £40 a month cost will appeal to a large number of people.
Nutrition without the pleasures of food won't be popular.
Guinness - there's your food substitute right there (pork chop in every pint apparently).
Nestlé and other companies have been making similar products for ages and they are much better. They just never marketed it as a mass product
In the film, Soylent Green was manufactured by a ruthless, power-hungry, amoral corporation. All a bit far-fetched eh? ;o)
I think that by definition the existence of McDonalds kills that theory ;)
