I've heard many people say they don't eat Quorn* because of how it's made. From fungus, I think. But I'm still quite confused about why or why not one should eat Quorn.<br><br>
I'd appreciate people giving me their opinions on eating or not eating Quorn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>

*Quorn is a meat-substitute.

I don't eat it anymore because it's not vegan (contains egg whites). But I have no problems with eating fungus. Maybe people are thinking it's not "natural," but it's not really more "unnatural" than any other meat subs. I would eat a vegan version of Quorn if it were available. It was delicious.

Ive never had it because the only time I saw it, I was vegan. I would have no problem trying it now, though. I don't care about eating a fungus, aren't mushrooms fungi? Anyone that knows me knows I'm super obsessed with mushrooms. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I am definitely not opposed to fungi foods; bring on the mushrooms, tempeh, kombucha, nutritional yeast, and bread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"> (I also liked blue and stiliton cheeses and alcohol back in the day.)<br><br>
I've never tried quorn and i don't eat it for ethical reasons.

Quorn is one of my favorite foods of all time. I love the nuggets baked and dipped in honey <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br>
I also use the tenders in place of real chicken in recipes. I made BBQ Chik'n pizza the other night.

I like the patties baked with lettuce, mustard, and tomato. It's how I would order them at Jack in the Crack.<br><br>
Honey or Bullseye BBQ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> Or even better... Texas Pete's Buffalo.

I ate quorn when I was in Switzerland and liked it. Now I don't eat it because it's 1) contains egg white and 2) isn't available in Germany anyway.

Quorn is good but I'm trying to stay away from eggs so I haven't had them in awhile. Like those above said.. mushrooms and tempeh are fungi so it really isn't a big issue. I would recommend Fry's. I bought the chicken strips and hotdogs and they are yummy AND vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I don't eat it any more because it's not vegan. I used to eat it, but there are WAY better meat substitutes out there which I discovered a few years after going vegetarian. Just before I turned vegan, the only Quorn products I ate were the pate and the creamy "chicken" and mushroom slice, because they were pretty damned tasty.

The Quorn Tenders are a wonderful substitute for real chicken in recipes. Here are a few pictures:<br><br><br>

They are pricey, but they go on sale a lot and Quorn tends out coupons if you ask <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I got them on sale for $2.99 once, bought 10 bags/boxes.
