I find Quorn to be a bit weird for me. I haven't found any meat substitutes that I actually like, so I tend to stay away from these.
Which one food would you recommend to regular meat eaters?

What didn't you like about Quron brand and which products did you try of theirs?
Quorn is actually what I have recommended to my meat eating friends and served them and they are always shocked at how good it taste w/ out my even doing much to it and at the texture. I made a killer "chicken" Parmesan w/ the breaded fillets for a recent event at my hubbies work. No one knew who brought it and no one knew it wasn't chicken! After the dish was emptied I told those who ate it and the floored looks I got! It was fabulous!

Money s mushroom burgers are great as well as President's choice (I think they
are the same)
Our compliments Veggie burgers are also good
I like Yves baloney but not their burgers
Amy's organic pizza is good too.

I haven't tried it, because of the concerns shared by friends of mine about it's processing.
Some people have a negative reaction to it. http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/health/Ne...003_10_23_2.htm and http://www.foodnavigator.com/news/news-ng....-quorn-a-fungus although people may theoretically respond negatively to any food.

I have no doubt that it may be tastey, and it is high in protein. But I haven't tried it. I've tried Boca and Morningstar farms. I'll try Yves next time.

Wow! I had never heard of any issues w/ Quorn brand before! Shocking! Hubb I and anyone else that I knwo who's had it has had zero issues luckily. It's the best meat substitute for things like chicken, ground beef, and hot dogs we have found. Used to eat Veat brand faux chicken until I discovered Quorn. Veat was decent texture wise and really good for stir fry's, but had zero flavor by it self and until we tasted Quorn we were fine w/ Veat. Veat was prompty eliminated from our diets once we discovered Quorn brand though.

I have no doubt that's the case. I've heard that it's really yummy.

If you end up not trying Quorn, but are looking for a decent faux chicken to use in cooking then try Veat. They have chicken pieces which are good for things like stir frys and such and breast fillets which are good in sandwhices and cutting into strips. They have a faux fish fillet which tastes noting like fish, but it does have a good flavor on it's own and is great when making an Asian influenced dishes. I'd recommend Boca sausages, but no longer since I discovered they are owned by Philip Morris. Need another good source for seasoned sausages now

I've never heard of adverse reactions to Quorn, I certainly have never had any.
I've been eating it since 1993, I was at Uni and one of my friends worked in the Quorn Factory a few miles away, They only made the Quorn Chunks at that time and I got a great discount LOL - a lot of my friends ate it because it was cheaper than meat because of the discount we got, as far as I knew neither of them got a reaction to it. I suppose there is always some food product that someone has a reaction too... If you polled me whether Fish fingers were safe then I would put no because I had a terrible reaction to them 25 years ago LOL


Veggierocks, As for the Linda McCartney stuff - you may like it - I found it very strange tasting....but then I'm very fussy LOL

Never had any reactions to Quorn either! Just wish I had discovered it sooner!
I'm actually not really into frozen dinners and such so I'm fine never trying LM dinners. Just surprised they aren't at all good.
