Show me a peer reviewed scientific paper or some credible research that shows health issues with quorn and I'll pay attention (You know like the massive harvard meta-study/research that strongly suggests health issues with processed red meat!)

That article is nothing more than the biased opinion of someone who even in the article claims ''I dislike meat substitutes that pretend to be meat'' so I think it's safe to say her impartiality is questionable at best!!

why is this upvoted? Quorn not only is unhealthy, but also tastes disgusting

Show me / post a link to some empirical evidence from a credible source to back this claim up or have you simply pulled it out your ass as I suspect!!

Anytime someone mentions being vegan or vegetarian, every meat eater turns into a nutritionist. X)

Good deal, cheers OP. Although these days the Tesco meat-free range is a bit tastier than quorn, it's a good price for those who prefer Quorn.

I know, its weird, surely they should be happy the more vegetarians three are, it means more meat for them doesn't it?


Very true. My husband eats a lot of meat, whilst I don't like it myself, him eating it or me cooking it for him doesn't bother me. When we first met he did try and do the classic thing of pretending he was a nutritionist and I was wrong, until I did the same back to him and he couldn't take it lol. I never make comments on what other people choose to eat as it's not going into my body, and I'm not threatened by something different. I'm vegan and very healthy, I manage to eat more protein than most normal people every day, I go to the gym 5-6 times a week... I bore myself having to justify how healthy I am to the people who couldn't be more unhealthy if they tried ;)

Yeah you're a vegan and you eat protein, however I would bet that you're lacking in some of the essential amino acids that are found only in meats and chickens, and are not found in vegetable protein sources

Quorn is a "first class" protein, and contains all 9 essential amino acids, and is considered a complete protein.

Sure, but not every vegetarian eats Quorn food, or not?

Sensible ones would only have it as a convenience food once in a while like the chav meals you get from Iceland.
If you want to debate the nutritional values of the product on my deal then go ahead, but could you please stop using the term "chav" as part of your argument. It has no place in a sensible discussion. Thank you.

Ok, sorry, processed cheap "convenience" meals from cheap frozen supermarkets that cater well for ermm cheap, convenience for the "busy" lifestyles of such clientelle.
It would be even better without the speech marks used to imply sarcasm.
Mine were used as I was quoting your comment.
But it's an improvement, thank you.
I give you my permission to return to your "debate". ;)

If quotes imply sarcasm then why did you initially use speech marks around the word chav?! They are often used more often than not to place emphasis on given words.
I already explained that I used speech marks around the word chav because it was a quote - they're also called quotation marks.
The second time I did it was around the word "debate" - but then it was to denote sarcasm, hopefully reinforced by the winking smiley face. I was making a poor joke, but it was at my own expense.

I wasn't taking this whole thing very seriously, I'm afraid.
I was more making fun of the argument in the thread really, because I don't think anyone is going to change their mind about vegetarianism, meat substitutes, or convenience food retailers because of a debate on a quorn deal.
As long as no one's being offensive I'm not too bothered what anyone says.

I'm not really sure how to make it clear that I'm only joking apart from saying so every time. I thought that's what this smiley meant - ;)

Please don't tell me this is your source of information you use to make decisions? That website is not scientific in the slightest, it's some nobody with an opinion which is not based on anything credible.
I could spend hours pointing out how utterly ignorant that woman is. She just looks at the label to decide if something is healthy! It's a bit more complicated than that. The science is in, fact has been established. Quorn is healthy, there is no debate.
And her mentioning of the adverse reactions is also another bogus claim. You can be allergic to any food, and Quorn is far better than many common foods, such as fish food, regarding reactions.

Well for starters WIkipedia is a good first port of call.
Eg. "About one in 140,000 consumers are sensitive to mycoproteins." - Mycoprotein

"Mycoprotein is ‘vegetable’ in origin and contains all nine essential amino acids, so is designated as a source of first class protein."

I would agree, I do not understand why anything processed pretends to be meat, I have far more enjoyed lentils to Quorn. I would much prefer to eat a vegetable burger than a Quorn Mince burger.

I totally agree. The language used throughout the article makes it abundantly clear that the author has already decided Quorn is bad.

The Sausages are not great but they have improved recently. Cauldron make the best veggie sausages, but I like Quorn mince & chicken as ingredients. Tonight, I will be using Quorn mince alongside lentils and a few other secret ingredients to make a delicious Cottage pie (or as my friend like to call it, gardeners question pie).

My only problem with Quorn is they don't have enough fun with the names. Why call it "Peperoni Style Slices" when you could call it "Pepperroneous".

I might have too much time on my hands :p

And as that article says "There are plenty of nutritious, safe, and environmentally-friendly meat substitutes, made with soybeans, mushrooms, legumes, rice, and other real food ingredients,”

So why do people choose mycoprotein? Cheapness, its the iceland chav food for vegetarians.

I am not knocking a vegan or vegeratian lifestyle, far from it, I am debating the "benefits" or lack of with mycoprotein. Seems as soon as you mention something about "Quorn" or anything else manufactured with mycoprotein you get jumped on for being anti-vegan/vegetarian which is ridiculously "biased".

The article ends with this:

"Personally, I dislike meat substitutes that pretend to be meat: if I am going to eat vegetarian food, then I prefer it to look like vegetables!"

Hardly the work of someone unbiased, is it?

I would agree, I do not understand why anything processed pretends to be meat, I have far more enjoyed lentils to Quorn. I would much prefer to eat a vegetable burger than a Quorn Mince burger.

Good deal, cheers OP. Although these days the Tesco meat-free range is a bit tastier than quorn, it's a good price for those who prefer Quorn.

I know, its weird, surely they should be happy the more vegetarians three are, it means more meat for them doesn't it?


Very true. My husband eats a lot of meat, whilst I don't like it myself, him eating it or me cooking it for him doesn't bother me. When we first met he did try and do the classic thing of pretending he was a nutritionist and I was wrong, until I did the same back to him and he couldn't take it lol. I never make comments on what other people choose to eat as it's not going into my body, and I'm not threatened by something different. I'm vegan and very healthy, I manage to eat more protein than most normal people every day, I go to the gym 5-6 times a week... I bore myself having to justify how healthy I am to the people who couldn't be more unhealthy if they tried ;)

Yeah you're a vegan and you eat protein, however I would bet that you're lacking in some of the essential amino acids that are found only in meats and chickens, and are not found in vegetable protein sources

Isn't B12 the only issue? But that's quite easily synthesized and added to things like cereal so not hard to get.

A vegan lifestyle is becoming more popular for top level athletes (including MMA fighters for some reason).

It depends on what the person is eating ofcourse, but most vegetarians are already incredibly picky anyway, so it's easy to assume that their bodies are lacking some of the amino acids... and I find it hard to believe that top level athletes are becoming vegeterians, any source? It would be difficult to maintain a high level of performance while on a restricted diet I would imagine..

I've got things to do so I'm leaving you lot to your argument.
While I'm gone do you think you can get me my orange celebrity badge? I think that's 250 comments though. ;)

Interesting article about the mycoprotein.

Regarding athletes going vegan, here's some UFC fighters talking about it: http://astigvegan.com/2011/09/13/ufc-fighters-adopting-a-vegan-diet/
