Not seen these reduced before, in fact I think they may be a new line - not on Tesco website yet but spotted today in Walkden Extra.

I thought that Quorn is a type of fungus and is not GM ?

agreed, we tried them around 6m ago and concluded we wouldn't bother again. I think they launched loads of new products to capitalise on the horse meat fiasco and much effort hasn't gone into the product as other quornnstff stuff is pretty good

Yes, but I'm not sure facts overly concern someone with a username of M1LFHunter.

According to the Old Wikipedia...

"Quorn is made from the soil mould Fusarium venenatum strain PTA-2684 (previously misidentified as the parasitic mould Fusarium graminearum[27]). The fungus is grown in continually oxygenated water in large, otherwise sterile fermentation tanks. Glucose is added as a food for the fungus, as are vitamins and minerals to improve the food value of the product"

"The product is dried and mixed with egg albumen, which acts as a binder. It is then textured, giving it some of the grained character of meat, and pressed either into a mince resembling ground beef; forms resembling chicken breasts, meatballs, and turkey roasts; or chunks resembling diced chicken breast. In these forms, Quorn has a varying colour and a mild flavour resembling the imitated meat product, and is suitable for use as a replacement for meat in many dishes, such as stews and casseroles. The final Quorn product is high in protein and dietary fibre and is low in saturated fat and salt. It contains less dietary iron than do most meats"

Tasty....oO

I do not know, but Quorn Lamb Strips sounds a bit too much red light district for animal lovers....is it full monty?

Quorn also has the side effect of causing vomiting in some people. Out of the 4 of us in our fmaily, only my son has this reaction. Apparently, in severe cases it can be really bad

I like the lamb strips! Great with mint sauce nom

I love the facon, chicken pieces, meatballs, mince ,deli slices, mini scotch eggs and southern style burgers but you can keep these, eurgh!!!

Why are you meat eaters so interested in veggie deals?

Because they don't give up meat because they don't like it but because they don't like animals being killed, simple really. My son has been a vegetarian since he was 14, always loved his sausages etc but couldn't live with the fact animals were dying for his food. His favourite vegetarian "meat" product is Linda McCartney sausages, lovely they are, even to most meat eaters.

Tofu.... that's all veggies should eat... pretending to eat mushrooms made into meat flavour.... there's no substitute for the real thing...
