LOS ANGELES — Soylent Nutrition, Inc., maker of meal replacement beverages, is launching two new lines formulated with plant-based protein: Soylent Complete Protein and Soylent Complete Energy.
Vegan and gluten-free, both shakes feature soy protein, come in a chocolate flavor and are nutritionally complete, according to the company. The beverages are sweetened with allulose and sucralose.
Soylent Complete Protein shakes contain 250 calories, 30 grams of plant-based protein and 39 essential nutrients with no sugar per bottle. The shake also provides 5 grams of BCAAs and 1,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.
Soylent Complete Energy shakes are formulated with a blend of B vitamins, caffeine, l-theanine, l-tyrosine and alpha-GPC plus 15 grams of plant-based protein and 39 essential nutrients. Each bottle contains 180 calories and 3 grams of sugar.
“Every person has different nutritional demands as well as health goals,” said Demir Vangelov, chief executive officer of Soylent. “To support our consumer's unique needs, we wanted to expand our offering to allow for a more personalized approach to nutrition. Traditionally our consumers used Soylent products to replace meals, manage their weight and even for medical recovery, but we also know that numerous others consume a portion of a serving for a snack, mix Soylent with coffee for an added energy boost or even increase protein with other supplements. We wanted to remove the nutritional guesswork and make delicious products that meet a variety of consumer needs and goals.”
