mmmmmm! freshly slaughtered wood pulp, smashing

This has been going on for some time now the Iceland near me has had at this price for a least the last 3 weeks, I know, I've been buying it.

Heat added though as it is still a damn good price.

Obviously you've never tried it? I'm a big meat eater but I use this as an healthier alternative to red meat in pasta's etc tastes great imo :thumbsup:

The current Quorn mince is rather nice, almost as good as Realeat Vege Mince. I remember trying it when it first came out though and it was like wood pellets then.

why should Quorn be healthier than meat?

Quorn was designed in a lab and is nothing but fermented fungus slime...it's not healthier than meat and not more natural for sure.

If you want to eat meat, then just eat meat....

tbh i was all against this stuff for a long time, then tried it when on offer and is not bad at all! I find great with chilli con as you can add direct to source and microwave for 5 mins and all done and tastes pretty good and high in protein.

Its not modified either, they just add vitamins to give it more nutrition, and is low in cholesterol for people who need to watch that, some people have to watch there red meat intake and this is a good alternative :-)

I find the idea of eating fungus and slime a lot more natural than needlessly killing, skinning, cutting up, flavouring and eating a living animal.

It's called personal opinion.

if I wanted to eat meat, I would. But it just so happens I don't.

the fat and calorie content of this stuff is far lower than meat, while keeping the protein levels similar. its also a damn sight cheaper as well.

Its a great alternative to meat, and I am not a veggie, i would eat meat more but the missus prefers cooking with this.

I eat meat but my girlfriend is veggie and as we live together I eat veggie mince a lot. This stuff isn't particularly nice, I find it quite dry, tasteless and the texture isn't what I'm used to, but that depends on what you like. However if you're coating the stuff in some other sauce it does the job.

I agree with the above re:realeat, it is a lot nicer than quorn, the mince is chunkier and has a more palatable flavour, not as nice as meat but again if its in a sauce I don't mind too much.

Eating mould processed in a lab and depending on supplements to prevent nutrient deficiency is far less natural than eating meat. Unless there is a massive discrepancy in your understanding of the word 'natural', I can only assume you're kidding yourself into thinking otherwise to strengthen you vegetarian views.

Great price! I too prefer this mince to the quorn chicken.

I have been a vegetarian for 20 over years and see the food as a source of protein. My diet is based mainly on vegetables and tofu and quorn products give it some variety sometimes. The labelling are used just to differentiate different ways you could probably use the quorn products and obviously different types of sauces used. It is also one way of encouraging non-vegetarians to try out vegetarian food. I can't imagine eating something that I know was alive and moving out there somewhere before ending up in my plate for my own enjoyment and no I do not believe that animals were meant to be killed and eaten. It's my own personal view.

Why would it not be healthier than eating meat? What is un-natural about it?

I'm a veggie but there is nothing un-natural about eating meat. What is un-natural is the slaughter-house civilisation in which we live in today. In other words if those who want to eat meat, go ahead, but kill your own!
The slaughter-houses are a disgusting discredit to so-called humanity.

The animals I eat are usually dead. The killing isn't needless, it brings food on my table and shoes on your feet.

"look at me, I am so much better than you animal-eating brutes who beat cute puppied to death" it is that gutmensch attitude that really p++++++ me off.

Meat is a natural part of our diets and it is only today when we can synthesise or import alternative protein sources that we have a choice.

The question is not whether eating meat is right or wrong, the question is where you source your meat and how much you have. I personally prefer having less meat and rather spend more on quality produce from local sources. So there are many ways to act "responsibly".

In the end, it's all about personal ablation, if you thinks that eating fungal slime saves the planet: bon appetit
If you think that cheap supermarket meat that dissolves into water is healthy: bonne chance

Well, it is grown in a laboratory to start with, doesn't sound very natural to me.
It is grown in a sterile environment, how is it kept sterile?
The use additives to give it color/structure/texture, what's in there?

It is as natural as jelly beans.

My post states that I find it more natural. It's all relative to your point of view. Given the two options here, meat, or fungus, yes I find eating fungus a lot more natural and appealing than eating meat.

My perception of the word natural is fine thanks. Meat isn't already existing in nature, yes, animals are, meat isn't, but then I suppose that's the problem, you see meat, I see an animal.

Fungus is created by nature, yes it goes through a process before going on sale, but then so do clothes made from wool, so I guess you see them as being unnatural too.

Please don't assume things about me based on your own points of view. I don't need to 'kid' myself about anything, I know exactly what quorn is made from, and yet I still find it a better alternative than meat.

No, sorry, it doesn't put shoes on my feet, I neither eat, nor wear animals.

As for the killing, yes it is needless, there are plenty of alternatives to eating meat now, fact is people chose to eat meat simply because they like it. So the animal dies simply because people like the taste, to me, that's needless.

I don't assume I'm better than anyone who eats meat, I fully agree that it's a personal choice. But I do get sick and tired of meat eaters slagging of vegetarians at every given opportunity, then using the 'oh you think you're so much better than me' argument when there opinion isn't agreed with. Whenever a meat deal is posted you don't see veggies rushing in and slagging it off do you.

I agree wholeheartedly that it's personal choice, you're obviously a a meat eater, so I have to wonder why you felt the need to both look, and comment on a quorn deal,

What are you basing that on, guesses? Where do you think everything comes from, it isn't nature is it?

Quorn is an all natural product, but I will let you look into that yourself since why would you take my word for it.

If you like eating Quorn then you'll go and buy it, but if you're a narrow minded imbecile then you won't. If you've got nothing better to do, go and spout your rubbish elsewhere.

No one cares what you think about Quorn or anything else! Bigoted retards.

This is one of those marmite posts lol...

Personally I have never eaten it. But that's not for me to **** it off. so I will add heat to this as whether or not It's for me I see it a bargain for those that do use it.

I think I might have to pop to Iceland to get some of this.

For those that enjoy the Quorn products try writing to them. Quorn were kind enough to send me 5 £1 off vouchers after I sent them an e-mail with a general enquiry about one of there products.

Suddenly i have lost my appi oh it's ok i've found some meat in the freezer

I feel a vivisection is in order.

What is strange is that these threads always start the same. Someone posts a Quorn/Linda Mac deal, and some cave dweller jumps on with the 'why doncha eat meat?', then starts the argument for meat eating.

No vegetarian ever comes on and starts the 'meat eating is evil' stuff. Prats like you pre-empt the discussion. Are we sublimating some guilt at all? Have you ever killed an animal?

Yes it is. The question is when we have a choice, and can live a healthy life, why would we choose to kill animals to sustain us?

It might not be your question, because you don't want to answer that question. You want to pat yourself on the back for only eating cows that have properly manicured hoofs.

Good for you.

There is your political correctness. All that source local, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall inspired, self congratulatory, masturbatory, fetishistic clap trap.

The only reason why you would buy into the organic experience is because it satiates your conscience. So on the yard stick, you are much further down the scale than I. That is the difference.

I had to look up 'ablation'. I do not see its import in this discussion either. Unless you are trying to make some heavy handed suggestion that vegetarians are navel gazers who want to beat themselves across their backs to feel some sort of religious purity in self immolation.

By not eating meat my cholesterol is low, and my chance of getting colon cancer is lower. Lets have a race to see who dies first?

I am not worried about saving the planet. Anthropogenic climate change will be tomorrows chip paper.

You really are keen on this nature business aren't we?

I like 'artificial' intervention in the preparation of food. Would you deem salt artificial to keep meat fresh before refrigeration? You sir are a Luddite.

I have a real philosophical quandry with the terminology of 'nature', 'natural', 'artificial' etcetera. We are nature, are we not? Ergo, whether we are feeding chicken grain from a hessian sack, or building a damn across a river to conserve water, we are nature, therefore what we do is natural. Or do you believe that we are special and were put here for a purpose by a man who lives in the sky?

The formalisation of the idea that animals are there for us to use can be traced back to Christianity.

Quorn is a product of man made civilisation. It affords people the option to stop killing animals to survive. It is synthetic and tasty. I as an evolved entity, can see why inflicting pain on sentient beings with a central nervous system is unnecessary BECAUSE of the lifestyle we lead, and the fact that we can life healthy lives without killing animals. The increase in vegetarianism in the west is a direct result of living in a rich civilised society. I am privileged enough to have that choice.

Now, If I am trapped in a corner by a bear, then I will try and separate his head from his shoulders. Why? Because it would be necessary for my survival.

I had a lovely shepherds pie on Saturday, made with quorn mince. I had half a bottle of brandy and a cigar, and felt sated. There really was no need for a calf to be separated from its mother, have a bolt show into its brain, and to be chopped up into 'unnatural' shapes for me too have my dinner.

If you want to eat meat, fine. How's about allowing us to not eat meat, and let us vote on good deals on products we would like to buy?
