Many people on the move, who want to watch their weight, drink these food supplements due to their convenience and nutritional value. Ensure contains vitamins and carbohydrates, very little fiber, and sixteen grams of protein. Soylent, on the other hand, provides a whopping twenty-seven grams of fiber, twenty grams of protein, minerals, and vitamins, and It is especially high in potassium.

The impressive amount of protein and fiber in this drink will assist in your feeling of fullness. However, another factor to consider is that Ensure only has 220 calories, while Soylent has 400 calories. While calories are something to consider, you also have to take into account the entire nutritional panel. When comparing the two, one can see that even though the calories are almost double in Soylent, it is far more beneficial to your health. That being said, Ensure costs a little more than Soylent.
