Change in recipe – adding Xanthan Gum

Beginning today, all of the mixed People Chow I’m sending out will have 4g of Xanthan Gum per week. I’ve been testing it in my own batches and there’s a marked improvement in the texture of the final product. I was going to wait on this for a bit longer but on Monday I shipped out a batch that included some samples. It was past midnight (technically Tuesday then) and I didn’t want to mix up an additional batch… so I made the samples from my own batch I had just mixed up that night. If I want to keep the samples accurate then I need to have the final product be the same thing. I’ve updated the recipes on as well to reflect the change:

    How did you determine how much xantan gum to use? I am new to trying Soylent and am expecting my first shipment in a day or two. I created my own recipe by modifying the People Chow 3.1 to adhere to the new Soylent 1.4 ratios and the men’s steady weight loss nutrition profile (1759 calories). The recipe is here:

    I saw your latest video after ordering everything and was intrigued by the xanthan gum addition.

      I shamelessly stole the amount from axcho =) It seems to be a good amount.
