Soylent has launched a new beverage which is designed to be a solution for when hunger strikes between meals, giving consumers a plant-based alternative to high-sugar snacks.
Called Soylent Bridge and sold in 11oz bottles, the chocolate-flavoured drink contains 15 grams of plant-based protein and 36 essential nutrients with 180 calories and 3 grams of sugar.
The beverage design also reduces food waste with a year-long shelf life from manufacture. It also has no need for refrigeration until opened.
Soylent CEO Bryan Crowley said: “Soylent was created to fill ‘food voids’, those times when you either skip a meal or make unhealthy, unsustainable or expensive food choices because you don’t have access to something better. We know that mealtime isn’t the only time our customers are faced with these difficult food decisions, so we set out to create a more complete and nutritious way to get you to your next meal.
“Our customers have been asking for a lighter, lower-calorie option that still packs a protein punch to satisfy these occasions and with Soylent Bridge, we’ve delivered.”
Cases of 12 bottles can be purchased online exclusively at Soylent’s website, priced at $24.70 for subscribers and $26 for one-time orders.
Last year, Soylent won best beverage concept at the World Beverage Innovation Awards for its Soylent drink.
