Allergic to Quorn

Hi guys!
I would like to become a vegetarian and tried to jump right in by throwing everything out food wise and starting again. Turns out though - I'm allergic to Quorn! My reaction has slightly scared me out of now trying new meat substitutes

I don't want to give up but i also cannot live of literally just fruit and veg as i find it hard enough to hold my weight as it is.

Has anyone else had a reaction and if so, what do you use instead? Or what should i try next that isn't mold? (when i eventually build my confidence up to try something else)

I had no problems using Quorn chicken patties, they are one of my favorites.

Try other brands.

I've also used Gardein and Beyond Meat brands and love those as well with no bad effects.

The Quorn I know is from mycoprotein, so it is pretty much in a class by itself.
You don't need any processed to be veg'n, but if you don't have issues with gluten, soy or pea proteins there are definitely other options!
I didn't have any reaction to quorn, but I didn't like it anyway

Funny, I have been vegan over six years and have never tried quorn.

Quorn is kind of in the fungus/mold family, many people have problems with it. Don't let this sway you from trying others, they're not made from the same stuff.

Also, you don't have to eat any meat substitutes. Fruit, vegetables, grains, potatoes, nuts, seeds, beans.
