There’s already been much discussion following the warning that traditional methods of food production won’t be able to support a rapidly increasing global population. One solution that’s stepped out of science fiction and into reality is the liquid meal replacement, Soylent. The original concept proposed by Rob Rhinehart, attracted over $3 million in crowdfunding to help develop a powdered formula containing all the nutritional requirements for an average adult. Now, following a further $20 million injection from venture capitalists Andreesen Horowitz, Soylent is ready to unveil Soylent 2.0. Soylent 2.0 is ready to drink and comes in a 400kcal recyclable bottle. The latest incarnation introduces algae into the mix as a crucial ingredient. Eventually, the makers hope to design a Soylent-producing ‘superorganism’ – a strain of algae that pumps out Soylent all day, removing farms and factories from the production process altogether. Could this be where your next meal’s coming from?
