AeroLife Inhalable Food Powder
AeroLife gives new meaning to the phrase "he was so hungry, he sat down and inhaled his lunch." The AeroLife Air-based Nutrition System grinds your nutritional needs down to a fine powder, which can then be carefully drawn in the mouth with a delicate inhalation - and then swallowed.
(AeroLife Air-based Nutrition System video)
The patented AeroLife technology was designed upon a simple premise. Delivering big sensations in tiny amounts. Tiny dry particles of natural food, nutrients, and soon, medications, follow the air into the mouth and land on the tongue. They are then swallowed to give immediate taste and quick nutrient delivery to the body.
Using AeroLife is as easy to use as sipping a straw.
Simply pull the colored cap to open, place the slotted end between your lips, gently draw the powder into your mouth, swallow and pushclosed.
With our reloadable system, start by inserting the AeroPod into the reusable mouthpiece and twist. Then, pull open, gently draw the powder into your mouth, swallow and push closed.
Each AeroLife or reloadable AeroPod delivers 3-5 draws, so you can use as much or as little as you want.
AeroLife claims to contain no calories, no sugar, no liquids or unnecessary materials. No mystery ingredients, no unwanted chemicals - "just the good stuff".
Your great-great-grandfather's science fiction had this future all figured out. Take a look at the compact food pastilles from Edward Page Mitchell's 1879 classic The Senator's Daughter, which is probably the first use of the 'food pill' idea in science fiction.
He took from his waistcoat pocket the small gold box, scarcely larger than a watch, and opened the cover. In the palm of her white hand he placed one of the little pastilles.
"Eat it," said he. "It will satisfy your hunger."
She put the morsel into her mouth.... "But it is tasteless; almost without substance."
"Yet it will support life for from eighteen to twenty-five days. This little gold box holds food enough to afford all subsistence to the entire Seventy-sixth Congress for a month."
