Soylent is a high-tech food supplement. Designed by some of the best minds in the food nutrition industry, it gives you everything you need to survive, in one shake.

We’ll be honest, this was one of the things we saw on our California trip that made us smirk the most. But the joke’s on us – Soylent is selling so fast the company can barely keep up with demand. It seems there are loads of people who just hate all the hassle of preparing - and tasting - food.

Furthermore, there are plenty of people who have a difficult relationship with food – people suffering from anorexia, bulimia or even people with severe digestive problems - like stomach cancer patients - who claim it has revolutionised their lives.
