I am currently working on a solid DIY version of Soylent specifically designed for camping trips. It should have the following properties:
- High caloric density so it's lightweight
- Modular shape so it can fit anywhere and does not require specific packaging
- Not lacking important micronutrients but not necessairly 100% complete (since camping trips are of short to medium duration)
- High in Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium to compensate the loss of electrolyte due to perspiration.
- Have enough protein to cover at least the daily needs in essential amino acids
- Have a taste as neutral as possible
- Have extremly low water content for long time unrefrigerated conservation
- Should not require cooking or washing dishes
What I've came up with is a paste (texture like Play-Doh) based on almond, cashew and sunflower butter. I add maltodextrin sirup, complete milk protein, waxy maize, chia seeds, salt and potassium. It is for now only lacking Vitamins A and K ; Iodine can be easily added in the form of drops.
Note for preparation:
- Mix all ingredients together, except the malodextrin and the chia seeds.
- Prepare the maltodextrin sirup by heating 120g of maltodextrin with 33g of water. Once the sirup is created, add the necessary amount to the preparation.
- Add the chia seeds at the very end so they don't get crushed
