Based originally on PeopleChow
v1.4.6 Lowered the protein content to get cl9oser to the marks. And to lower the price per day. Protein went from $0.66 at 42 g to $0.53 at 33 g. Also moved the reference to Peoplechow from the title to the description.
v1.4.5 I have raised GNC up to 21.5 now to compensate for the less Vitamin A from the fixed Masa. You would only need to make it 22 if you did not use any cinnamon, as Cinnamon has a bit of A and a bit of manganese. Also adjusted prices to my current prices paid (prices fluctuate!) bringing my daily cost down to just 2.99!
v1.4.4 Masa from People Chow was very inconsistent with some values from enriched masa and some from unenriched. I have switched to "Unenriched" from the USDA Database. I have however left Niacin at zero. GNC contains a combination of Niacinamide and Niacin. Niacinamide does not cause flushing and therefore to have this value in the red just by a couple of points would be both unfair and confusing for some. It had 1.634 mg of niacin per 100 g of masa.
v1.4.3 Changed the Whey source to Hard Rhino Whey Protein (Thanks Chris.Bair)
v1.4.2 Increased Flax to 17 grams to acheive a 1 to 3 ration of Omega three to omega six. Going higher than 17 grams, assuming cinnamon is kept, will result in Manganese going over.
v1.4.1 Reduced Protein to 42 g to match a 2000 calorie diet
v1.4 added Ground flax seeds for a healthier omega 3 to 6 ratio. Eliminated Soybean oil. This makes the Omega 6 no longer green but the ration of omegas i belive is healthier with 1/4.5 O3/O4 instead of 1/10 as is the shown recomendation. Still historically and according to some research a ration of 1/1 might be even better. Not sure yet how to get there. Official Soylent uses fish oil.
v1.3.1 Corrected missing Niacin values that exists in the base PeopleChow 3.0.1 recipe. While my recipe already allows for a bit of extra niacin by reducing the GNC, the original People Chow has three grams more of the GNC at 23 g. This makes the niacin go over when you add the amount that has been excluded for the masa.
v 1.3 reduced GNC from 23 down to 20 to bring niacin under control.
v 1.2 - Added back a bit of Soybean oil (15 g) for better omega balance. Would like to eliminate soybean oil completely.
v 1.1 - Updated name, description Changed proportion of oat/masa. Masa gives me more complete energy but i still dont like the taste.I can stand the current proprotion if i use enough sugar/stevia and grind enough in my coffee bean grinder.
I am working on finding a replacement for the masa in Max's original People Chow. Many people love it. I dont. Currently i can tolorate as little as 100 grams of oat to 245 grams of masa but i perfer the current recipe i have.
He stated oat flour causes gas, but thats where i am starting. It doesnt really cause me problems. I will also be experimenting with different kinds of oil and a source of vitamin K. Currently i am using ChrisBair's vitamin K supplements he has on his recipe.
I decided to make this journey for me public so that perhaps others could learn from me and maybe comment on my recipe.
There are some ingredeints i have left on the list for now at zero, so that they are easily referenced. This also makes it easier for peopl that wish to copy and change it a bit, they dont have to go hunting down ingredients.
Yes, there is a lot of sugar. I need to find a recipe that i like and then i will slowly take out the sugar. I have never been fond of sugar replacements and i already ingest far more than that in a day (I like sweet tea) So i will be cutting out other sources of my daily sugar and instead will put it in my Soylent for now. After i find a recipe i like then i can deal with the sugar. I also am trying cinnamon, vanilla and Stevia.
