Soylent Now Shipping to Canada–Never Eat Real Food Ever Again


On a crazy coding binging marathon or non-stop looting spree in Clash of Clans and just don’t have time to eat or prepare food? You don’t have to anymore, because Soylent is now shipping to Canada (it is our job to inform you of ‘big’ things now available in Canada).

The meal replacement that has a massive cult-like following in the U.S., particularly in Silicon Valley, has made its way north of the border. The drink advertises itself as the following:

Soylent is a simple, nutritious, and affordable food that possesses all the essential ingredients a body needs to be healthy.

The company shared the news in a video reading letters from customers pleading for shipping to Canada:

David Jenkins, Canada Research Chair in the department of medicine and nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto and St. Michael’s Hospital, told The Star Soylent “may not be the worst thing on earth for you,” noting the reasonable balance of macronutrients but low fibre content.

Soylent’s CEO Rob Rhinehart lived on Solent for 30 days, so this Motherboard editor-in-chief decided to try the same—check out the video below from 2013:

The powdered drink earlier this year raised $20 million in VC funding from Andreessen Horowitz, making its possible valuation in the range of $100-150 million. People really like this stuff.

The meal replacement now includes free shipping to anywhere in Canada, including the Arctic via Canada Post. Every updated and improved version of Soylent comes with release notes, such as version 1.5 which says there is “improved texture,” plus “changes in carbohydrates,” along with “changes in powdered oils,” and a “slight decrease in sodium chloride.” Sounds yummy. Now, excuse me while I go eat a steak and lobster instead.

    Watched the least his test result didn’t show any significant changes other than lack of vitamin D. Who knows..this may be the future in 100 years?

  • Kellie

    For these who really need meal replacements (elderly for example), maybe this could be their savior!

  • Tim

    I tried it for a day. One day. Enough said.

  • K3

    Little on the expensive side but maybe made up for by the volume of protein mentioned. Most supplement protein for lifters is around a little more than half…..

    Note sure the “testers” in the vid were made aware but anything could be added when getting a shake mixed together.

    Anyone know if Paypal with be available for purchasing their product?

  • fredf1

    Why is this mentioned on an IT site? Oh, I see, crass money grab.

    Hardly a ringing endorsement: “Solent “may not be the worst thing on earth for you”.

    What a laugh.

  • Jay

    Just reading about makes me want a steak…

  • erth

    has gluten and soy. it probably will do more harm than good.

  • Do you even Soylent?

  • fredf1

    No, why? Is that relevant to my comment? Do I have to use the product to ask why it’s being pushed on an IT site?
    By the way, I saw the CEO of Soylent interviewed on The Agenda on TVO. Afterwards the nutritionist’s comments were very critical.
    Or, as we like to say ‘it may not be the worst thing on earth for you’.

  • We stated why we covered this in the first paragraph. And no we didn’t get paid Fred.

    Google Vitaly’s do you even lift video that was my reference.

  • fredf1

    Hey, listen. Sorry, I didn’t mean to pick a fight.
    The product is not harmful but certainly isn’t terribly useful either.

  • It’s like Ensure but for hipsters!

  • Peter Pottinger

    Please don’t advertise or support this, its not healthy and will harm your body in the long term. It sickens me that some websites will push anything just for a few bucks, whats next, crack cocaine?

    Why don’t you promote something worthwhile like my flower website!?

  • You have a flower website? Do share!

  • ????Dennis

    Welif some of you folks are taking this

  • William Kappel

    Thanks Gary! I’ve been waiting for this to start shipping to Canada for a long time (I could absolutely have been one of the commenters in that video lol). I check back on their twitter every once in a while, but I found out here first, so I appreciate the article! And PS: I don’t have a single Apple product anymore, but I still visit this site to catch up every few day or so. And it’s because of stuff like this, Canadian-related tech/mobility info. Keep up the great work 😉

  • Cheers William, thanks for your support and reading us still 🙂
