Some people working on the future of food want to abandon just about everything we know about eating. Rob Rhinehart is one such example, and he’s currently moving to retail with Soylent, a liquid meal replacer that purports to make all other forms of nutrition unnecessary. The thick, odorless beige drink is a concoction of fats, proteins and carbohydrates that runs 1,000 calories to the liter. A successful crowdfunding program and several venture capital firms are giving Rhinehart the cash he needs to get Soylent on the mass market soon.
