The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has banned the sale of Soylent food replacement products because they don't meet all the requirements for a meal replacement in that country.

“Although we feel strongly that these requirements do not reflect the current understanding of human nutritional needs, we respect the CFIA’s regulations and will fully comply with any regulatory action they deem appropriate,” founder and CEO of Soylent-maker Rosa Foods Rob Rhinehart said, CNN Money reported.

Rosa Foods also said it was working with the CFIA to try to resolve the issue quickly so that it can resume sales in Canada, and that Canadians on a subscription plan will not be charged for product they aren’t allowed to receive.

Soylent is popular in Silicon Valley for busy entrepreneurs and developers who consider themselves too busy to bother preparing food and eating meals, CNN reported. It aims to have all the nutritional requirements for a daily diet and comes in various flavors, although it is said to have a chalky taste and texture, Eater reported.

“There is nothing wrong with the Soylent product you are consuming,” Rhinehart said, Eater reported. “This issue emerged from regulatory compliance, not procuct quality.” 

Soylent also used to come in protein bars, but those were recalled after some customers reported nausea and other stomach problems after eating them.

Some on Twitter defended the company and others shared negative experiences with Soylent.
