Those ultimate burgers are amazing. At 2 quid whilst expensive they are worth it.
How the hell is quorn more expensive than meat? Serious question, we use a lot of it, but isn't it just a type of fungus?

I had rented houses that grew enough fungus to feed a small African village. How can it be more expensive to grow Quorn fungus than raise a huge bloody cow to make mince?

Because we'll pay for it!.. our house funguses such as aspergillus may not be delicious or something we will pay for!.

Either way, it's a great way to fleece us.

The amount of fats and sugars is outrageous in prepared foods is outrageous anyway, I'm trying my best to only eat home cooked foods, even if that means I incorporate Quorn products in my cooking.

Beause the meat industry has huge economies of scale and benefits from various government subsidies, to the tune of billions of pounds.

To make quorn also requries a fair amount of investment in various types of equipment, such that even if another company wanted to do similar, it would be difficult for them to compete with Quorn. This also helps to maintain the price.

Im not gullible enough to fall for propaganda.
I don't think it's propoganda when meat consumption is actively directly responsible for heart desease and cancer. However I think it's wise to be careful about the quality and quantity of your meat. That's a good start right there.
