Cheaper than the usual sale price, hot.

Just to pre-emptively silence the trolls (you know who you are):
Troll: "Tastes like rubber"
Fact: Out of the millions who consume it each year, most people who eat Quorn are meat eaters.

Troll: "It's bad for you."
Fact: It's been approved as completely safe by all major health authorities. The high protein content, like any other high protein food, can cause allergic reactions. However far less than nuts, soy, or shellfish. About 1 in 146,000. CSPIs FUD campaign is funded by Quorns biggest competitor, GardenBurger.

Troll: "It's unnatural GM goo!"
Fact: It's natural, discovered in nature, and no GM in sight. Derived from a fungi that is similar (but not the same) as mushrooms (which is also a fungi).

'Nough said ! Good reply to eejits

Makes great bolognese. Don't overcook it though, 'cause that makes it taste like cardboard! If you follow the directions it's grand. Good find.

Pure marketing b.....t.
Quorn is actually a highly processed food substitute which will be rather bad for you in longer term...

Thanks, very detailed and proactive

[ Note to self ] Never start an argument with NitrousUK

Note this is NOT Vegan. It contains egg!
So avoid if you are a vegan, and you would like more choice, you can email [email protected]quornfoods.com and tell them that you would like Quorn to be 100% vegan

It's a food. End of.
It's processed in that it has been through a process - just like bread or beer.
Do feel free to back up your claims on how bad it is for you with links to some scientific evidence.

don't forget to check your receipt, it's Tesco.

I like Quorn. And I'm a meat eater. Easier & cleaner to cook. No worries about salmonella... contamination etc By the time you've added in plenty of seasoning/herbs/spices you can't really tell that much if a difference

Don't let meat eating trolls know about it. HOT OP

I tried this as a meat substitute in chilli on the hob but it sucked all the moisture up from the tomato and beans and came out a bit of a disaster. Do I need to add double the amount of moisture for it to work?

"What is Quorn actually made of?
Mold, to be exact. Its main ingredient is mycoprotein, made by fermenting the fungus Fusarium venenatum in a broth of glucose and minerals. Later, the fermented solids are mixed with binders (mostly egg whites and wheat protein) and whisked off to your grocery store"
How can you call this food ? How can you compare Quorn to bread or beer ? Why Quorn is always "half price" at one or other retailer ? Some people just loosing common sense in favour of convenience and cost...

Pretty much! I normally cook multiple batches for my chilli. I use 2 tins of kidney beans (in chilli sauce, from Tescos) and one 500ml passata, plus roughly 300g of quorn mince. Plenty of sauce remaining after slow cooking for an hour and no need to add water.

I'm glad you can see it's a natural process just like fermenting wheat protein and sugars with yeast to produce things like bread and beer.
Still struggling to find the links as to why it's so bad for you?

Thanks for asking. Here's the info you require: Quorn Nutritional Info

I assume you never eat mushrooms? That's a "mold".
Aside from the completely irrational fear of something you don't understand, what is it exactly about this fungi that you think makes it bad?
I'm pretty sure I can help find the answer to any question you have. I'm currently working on post-grad qualifications in Medical Statistics and Molecular Biology, so I should be able to help.

You're both wrong, Mold is a small Welsh town. Unless I'm on Hotusdeals.com by mistake, the word you're looking for is "mould".

Any highly processed food will be bad for you in longer term - just google for it. Quorn is just one big marketing con which many people fallen into... food substitute made from mould, jeeez.

So you can provide zero evidence why the natural process that Quorn goes through is bad you....
Explain what the con is or are you just spouting more troll rubbish?

So your "evidence" is because you think it is "processed", it therefore must be bad for you? That makes about as much sense as thinking everything that is the colour green is good for you.
If I take a salad, and shake the bowl, is it now bad for me? I've "processed" it, so therefore it must be?
Are you aware of a specific process that Quorn undergoes which makes it bad? Do you have any evidence (that exists outside of your head)? More importantly, do you trust science?

Could you explain to us what natural process makes fungus tasting like a chicken or beef ? Just finished my session at the gym with chest nicely done - should I run to Tesco to grab some mycoprotein, or just stick with usual chicken with some sauce and salad ? I trust science but I don't trust company's representatives( comment nr 1 as the best example)... many side effects will be visible in longer term, that's why I stick to simple food.

Thanks OP, worth a try at that price, despite the battle of the foodies that seems to have broken out on here.

Might wash it down with some Diet Coke (sits back and waits for the Aspartame wars to break out)

Welcome to HUKD.

Any deal with Quorn starts a war, because trolls and people scared of change always chime in with completely inaccurate statements that demand refutation.

So your fear of this food is based entirely on your ignorance of how it's made. It's one thing to say you avoid foods you don't understand (which is fine), but to chime in with bold statements like it's "bad" for everyone as though your ignorance of it qualifies as some kind of authority, just beggars belief..

Other people eating Quorn doesn't affect your ability to eat chicken (which I suspect is the real root of your irrational arguments). If you trust science, then why not trust the fact that there has been zero scientific evidence found for any negative health effects in the 31 years it's been on the market?
