The nutrition start-up Soylent announced today the release of their newest product, Soylent 2.0. The drink is intended as a complete meal replacement, containing all of the protein, fats and vitamins necessary for human nutrition. 

The company wrote in a Tumblr post that their new product is more environmentally sustainable. The drink is vegan and uses algae for half of its fat content, a cheaper, more energy efficient alternative to farmed crops. 

Soylent 2.0 is available now for pre-order online. A case of 12 bottles will run you $29, and the drink is expected to ship in October.
