There have been a large number of startups that offer nutritionally complete food, like Soylent and Huel. All of them, as far as I know, offer it mainly in powdered form. You have to mix it with water, and shake it, giving you a 'nutrient drink'.

However, all this mixing is very annoying to me.

Why do they offer powdered versions only, instead of the kind of bars that astronauts eat?

Huel offers this bar version, but its small, and only intended as a side snack.

Are there any other companies that offer nutrtionally complete food in hard-form rather than powdered-form, that can be used as a primary meal replacement?

    Probably because making it into a solid form means making it palatable, and that's 1000 times harder than making a powder you mix with other stuff. – Carey Gregory Jun 22 '17 at 14:32
  • @CareyGregory I'd bet all my money in your theory (notice the would though, I'm not gonna risk it :P) – Narusan Jun 22 '17 at 16:23
  • "A nutritionally complete product that isn't powder." You could try food – WakeDemons3 Mar 6 '18 at 16:34
