Amid illnesses, Soylent halts powder sales and zeroes in on bad ingredients

Ars reached out to Soylent to ask what those ingredients are, but we haven’t received a response yet. We’ll update when we do. However, based on online ingredient listings for the three products, the likely top suspects include Whole Algal Flour, Isomaltooligosaccharide (a non-digestible, low-calorie sweetener made of short-chain carbohydrates), and a Soy Protein Isolate.

When Ars last spoke to a source close to the company, they said that soy proteins were a likely culprit behind illnesses linked to the bars. According to the source, the bars contained a mixture of three soy protein products that may not be evenly mixed into the bars.
