With new products and a growing retail presence, Soylent has evolved from a tech company that sold food, as CEO Bryan Crowley put it in an interview with CNN Business, to a food company that is enabled by tech and science. Soylent's latest product, Soylent Squared, is a calorie snack bar.
Soylent calls it a "mini-meal" because it's got 36 essential nutrients, including 26 vitamins and minerals, 9 amino acids, omega-3 and omega People can eat one or two as a snack, or three to four for a complete meal, according to Crowley. With its signature meal replacement powders and shakes, Soylent is targeting a specific demographic: College students, gamers and young professionals — particularly people who work in the gig economy and balance multiple jobs, and want affordable, nutritious food on the go.

Why I'm Trying Soylent
A snack bar is easier to sell to most consumers than a meal shake, Crowley reasons. Plenty of people eat them, and would be open to trying a new variety.

And while the first version of the product was designed to be a life hack, the current iteration is supposed to fill what Crowley calls "food voids," times in the day when people either skip a meal or reach for an unhealthy option , like a burger from a fast-food chain or a breakfast pastry — a challenging proposition.
