Yeah- not too bad. It's in the tofu/soy/veggie burgers/WTFE/ family. Pretty tasteless from my limited experience. I've only seen vegans eat it voluntarily.

The Quorn people decribe it as "of mushroom in origin" but as far as I'm aware the organism they culture it from is more of a yeast type thing.
I suppose their thinking goes: mushroom=fungus, yeast=fungus, ergo yeast=mushroom, yay!
I think I heard about some disgruntled veggies taking the Quorn guys to court, after finding out their delicious "mushroom" protein was actually disgusting monocellular goo, though I haven't heard anything further since then....

pussies...chitin is chitin. I was under the impression that quorn is was the pulped and pressed mycelium from a liquid batch grown fusarium species.

Listen! Do you smell something?

Regardless of what it actually is, I don't personally like it :wink:

I believe it was developed in the UK? And they did get in trouble for pitching it as a mushroom protein...(which it's not).

It may look like a button mushroom right now, but wait until you see how it grows!
