The vitamin D soft-gel pill may present a problem when mixing, but maybe not, who knows I haven't tried to make this yet. I will attempt to make this in the very near future. I didn't factor in salt into the cost as you can get it for free and you probably already have some, The protein powder I am using is very good quality and is apparently the best flavor you can get too.
-Don't worry about high magnesium, only high doses (350 mg) of supplemental magnesium per day are known to cause health problems. However the high magnesium may affect some who are more gastrointestinally sensitive.
I used a combination of yellow corn flour, oat flour, and dextrose in an attempt to have good balancing of carbs, GI value and cost
a 2:1 whey to soy ratio for protein can actually be beneficial due to a combination of fast and slow digesting proteins. Soy isn't as slow acting as casein but I like the low cost and high nutrition. This blend also lacks a 2:1 ratio but it will still have a similar effect.
Soy and more generally phytoestrogens have zero effect on males, specifically zero affect on hormones. Try to find a scientific study stating otherwise.
I set minimum for sodium to 725 mg (which is why it contains like 100% of DV)
I feel this mix would be good for busy athletic college students due to various reasons (cost, nutrition, all of this can be bought with amazon prime)
Calories on this are a little low for athletic college students so another 200 in carbs or fat would probably be needed in order to be able to live off of it
Feel free to tell me how bad of a recipe this is (first time making one). I am really going to try and make this and possibly do a one month trial of it.
