This is a variant of the UK's most popular recipe "Liquid Cake v1.3" by cultofmonkey. their recipe is geared for weight loss, however uses some very useful ingredients to help keep a good balance regardless. I have tweaked the recipe for a moderate macronutrient ratio. It is measured off of my personal profile calculated by the Nutrient Profile Calculator. I replaced the scottish oats with Maltrodextrin, as the number of oats required to get the carbs up was putting the manganese through the roof (over 1000%) - The removal of these brought a lot of values down, so they are now closer to 100% than on the original recipe, and some additional supplements had to be added to bring some back up to 100% - the benefit of this is that it allowed me to tweak many of the vitamins and minerals quite accurately.
I have measured ingredients to up to 2 decimal places where necessary to get as close to 100% as possible. Some require 3 or more decimal places to get specific, but that difference is negligible anyway, and I imagine we would all have quite a bit of trouble trying to get that specific! - I'll probably do a separate recipe to more decimal places just to iron out those creases for my own satisfaction :)
Other than that I am very happy to say that EVERYTHING is under 300%... 290% if we're being markety, and 287% if we're being pedantic. The highest is Sulfur at 286%. I also didn't really mind the Vitamin D going up, as in the UK people tend to take a 5000ui tablet a day anyway, especially in winter! So the small boost was welcome in some ways.
Right now, what I really need help with, is the Omega values. I cannot find a way of upping the Omega-6 content without pushing the already high Omega-3 content higher. So it's the only thing sitting lower than 100% - considerably so at a mere 42%! I'm also not really following this Omega-3:Omega-6 ratio debate going on either! So seriously, any input on adjusting the Omega values is much appreciated.
Please, critique away, as it's a first, rather uneducated attempt, and for now, ignore the values of products, as they have not been sourced properly just yet.
