Sorry I stand corrected it is

Quorn is made with mycoprotein, a nutritious member of the fungi family, which is naturally low in fat.

It is all to do with soya and fermenting fungus

P-Kasso answers:

Quorn is some sort of factory-treated mushrooms. I don't trust packet foods.

What's wrong with real mushrooms? I like my mushrooms grown by farmers, not by chemists.

Quorn is a very successful marketing ploy though. And the spoofy sci-fi name sounds a lot tastier that a 'Mycoprotein' which is just Myco (=fungi)plus Protein.

Does the fermenting of mushrooms really improve the nutritional value? It might improve the taste but so does a good bash of Tabasco.

What's wrong with Tofu instead?
