They have egg white and whey protein. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> And I loved it before giving up eggs and dairy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

You're in the UK, right? Go to Holland & Barrett and they have lots of vegan stuff for about the same price as quorn. Fake ham, beef, chicken and turkey slices and sausages, chicken bits, beef bits, burgers - all sorts.<br><br><br><br>
Quorn was my biggest thing to give up on turning vegan too, but it's not too dreadful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I thought that I read that it is more of a mold that a mushroom....is that right? The article I read about it kind of freaked me out...but then again, everything freaks me out.

meh... tempeh, beer, cheese, vinegar, wine... they're all fermented/moldy and we don't freak out about those like we do over Quorn.
