This Sparked Me!

Quorn is my new favourite food! It is a low calorie protein source that tastes more like real meat than any other vegetarian meat substitute I've tried. Even my husband thought it was chicken when he tried it. It comes in strips, pieces, mince, sausage rolls, schnitzel, nuggets....

    I'm a huge fan of Quorn products, and live in the US. They are sold in Stop & Shop, plus all the veggie friendly food stores. I have not seen schnitzel yet! But I recall having to go back and look at the box of naked cutlets TWICE to make sure I wasn't eating chicken. Amazing!

    I live in Australia and here you can get them from Coles. I had not seen the product in the US when I was last there so I'm not sure where you'd get them. They do have a website which might help:

    I had never heard of this. Did some research on it and found that, although initially marketed as being derived from mushrooms, that was a marketing ploy, and it is really derived from a fungus which is a non-mushroom processed mold. Then this fungus is processed with egg whites as a binder to produce the final product. Since I have been tested for allergies and have reacted to every mold I have ever touched, I think I will pass on this one.

Thanks for at least bringing this up, though. As I said, I had never heard of this before.

    What grocery chain did you purchase this item, Quorn. I bought them too and we loved them but I can't find them again or remember where I had purchased them?
