Coffiest by Soylent Meal Replacement Drink Review: Yay or Nay? Find Out Here! 

(Last Updated On: October 29, 2017)Coffiest by Soylent promises it’s drinkers to deliver a ready to drink breakfast and morning coffee combo in a singular bottle, all the while providing you with 20% of your daily nutritional needs with 150 mg of caffeine.

Unlike the typical meal replacement drink, Soylent claims that you won’t have to sacrifice any flavor with this drink, as there is a light roasted coffee taste with a hint of a chocolate flavor.

A bottle of Coffiest contains four hundred calories of plant-based nutrition, such as soy protein and algal oil, which is made in a GMP certified facility in the USA. You won’t find any lactose or nuts in this breakfast drink, which is shipped out in a recyclable packaging.

Coffiest has a thin consistency to it, thin enough to pass a protein shake. There is a strong coffee flavor to the drink that is bitter if you’re not used to drinking black coffee. After you swallow your drink, you get a hint of a chocolate taste, that tastes like a combination of cocoa powder and the leftover milk in your bowl after eating a chocolate cereal.

A lot of people who use Coffiest talk about how much they enjoy the taste of Coffiest and how easy the drink was to use. However, on the opposite end of the spectrum, a lot of customers complain that Coffiest didn’t meet their taste preferences, that the texture of the drink was extremely powdery, and that the mix of the drink tastes like burnt coffee and chocolate.

A lot of other users also discussed that it didn’t help to curb their huger for very long and for not working extremely effectively, the program was extremely expensive. If you’re interested in reading more about the pros and cons of drinking Coffiest are, keep on reading!

What kind of nutrition does Coffiest by Soylent have?

According to the details released by Soylent, Coffiest is a nut-free, lactose, and vegan meal replacement drink. The only downfall that Coffiest has is that it isn’t organic, kosher, allergen, gluten-free, or GMO-free. Each bottle of Coffiest has:

  • 400 calories
  • 25 micronutrients
  • 7 grams of carbohydrates
  • 21 grams of fats
  • 20 grams of protein
  • 2 grams of saturated fat
  • 300 milligrams of sodium
  • 3 grams of fiber
  • 9 grams of sugar
  • 0 grams of trans fat
  • 0 grams of cholesterol

In order to improve the taste of meal replacement drinks, a lot of companies put a lot of sugar into the drinks. However, Coffiest only contains 9 grams of sugar, which is a lot less than what other companies put into the drinks.

How do meal replacement drinks work?

While we won’t get into great detail about how exactly meal replacement drinks work, some quick background information about how meal replacement drinks work can help you to understand how
Coffiest works.

The amount of energy that is contained in food is measured out in calories, which represent the amount of energy it takes to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. Different macronutrients have a different amount of calories, such as carbohydrates, protein, and fat.

One gram of protein will have four calories, while one gram of fat will have nine calories. Foods that are higher in fat will be higher in caloric intake. No matter the type of food you eat, if you consume more calories than you burn, your body will store this extra energy as a form of fat.

If this calorie surplus continues for a long period of time, it will lead to unwanted weight gain.

However, if you force your body to burn the extra fat reserves, you will start to lose weight. By using a meal replacement drink, you are providing yourself with a quick, easy, and efficient way to get nutrition, but you are also supplying your body with fewer calories than a traditional breakfast comes with.

This means that when combined with exercise and a healthy diet, you will have an easier time reaching your fitness and weight loss goals.

What type of nutrition does Coffiest by Soylent provide to my body?

Soylent has released their ingredients list of Coffiest, which goes as the following:

Filtered water, Soy Protein Isolate, Maltodextrin, High Oleic Algal Oil, Isomaltulose, Natural Coffee Flavor, Canola Oil, Coffee Powder, Natural and Artifical Flavors, Oat Fiber, Alkalized Cocoa Powder, Isomaltooligosaccharide, Soy Lecithin, Potassium Chloride, Tricalcium, Phosphate, Magnesium Phosphate, Salt, Choline Chloride, Gellan Gum, L-theanine, Sodium Ascorbate, Sucralose, Zinc Sulfate, Niacinamide, dl-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Ferric Orthophosphate, Calcium Pantothenate, Copper Gluconate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Manganese Sulfate, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Thiamin Hydrochloride, Chromium Chloride, Biotin, Sodium Selenite, Folic Acid, Sodium Molybdate, Phytonadione, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12.

Of all of the ingredients listed in this meal replacement drink, soy protein isolate is the most common ingredient that is used within the food industry; soy protein isolate contains a minimum of 90% protein. Soy protein is often found as a standalone powder supplement, but it is also commonly found to improve the texture and moisture retention of meat.

Algal oil is an ingredient that is taken from fermented algae, which is much more of a sustainable way of obtaining omega-3 fatty acids. Isomaltulose is a slow and sustaining release carbohydrate that is derived from beets, which helps to lower blood glucose levels and improve insulin response.

L-theanine is an amino acid that is typically found in green tea, which can help to reduce the amount of jitteriness that is commonly associated with caffeine.

The rest of the ingredients that are involved in this drink are healthy nutrients that should be a part of healthy diet, as well as a few ingredients in there to help improve the texture and the taste of the drink.
