Soylent is an open source (1.4–1.6) meal replacement, advertised as a "staple meal", available in both liquid and powdered forms as a beverage, and as a solid-form meal bar. Its creators state that Soylent meets all nutritional requirements for an average adult. It was first created and tested by software engineer Rob Rhinehart as a self-experiment in nutrition. Subsequently, the powdered version of Soylent was developed into the first product line of the company Rosa Labs, which currently markets and sells the formulation.

Rosa Labs states that the current formulation is based on recommendations of the National Academy of Medicine and that Soylent meets the current Food and Drug Administration requirements to be sold as a food. Rosa Labs also states that Soylent includes all of the elements of a healthy diet, without excess amounts of sugars, saturated fats, or cholesterol.
