This untested peanut-flavored Soylent is supposed to minimize inflammation and internal organ stresses for diabetics. Its fats and oils balance omega-3 and omega-6 oils. All the proteins and fats are from plants, to reduce both inflammation and acidic damage. It also gets most of its calories from vegetable fats. This minimizes both glycemic carbohydrates and liver-stressing proteins. Most electrolytes are minimal to reduce kidney stress, but some calcium utilization cogeners are increased to help prevent bone mass loss.

Because of its low glycemic index, It should be ketogenic, to help a user lose weight.

Antioxidants are generally recognized to have no effect on aging, but they seem to reduce inflammation. The mix has cheap antioxidants in modest amounts: Vitamins C & E are present. Selenium, zinc and copper are cofactors for various superoxide dismutases.

A possible problem is that it may not be very satisfying. Although it exceeds minimums for fiber, it's physically not very bulky, has relatively little protein and is mostly oils.

The cost is minimized to make it affordable. Therefore, it follows a scientific, rather than a moral vegan philosophy. While the proteins and fats are from plants, it uses a small amount of bone-meal as an economical source of calcium and phosphorus. A committed moral vegan can rebalance it with a more-expensive seed-based source of phosphorus, such as pumpkin or sunflower-seed butter.

It's completely sourced from Amazon, which should simplify assembly.

And, please note that the DRI is for an old lady!
