    Opinions on Quorn?

    Shop Now
    I was wondering if anyone here has any info/opinions on Quorn?

    I usually eat it about once a week as my partner is a vegetarian. I make spaghetti bolognese and it's an easy meal that we can share. I don't have spaghetti though, I have veggies and bolognese

    Could Quorn be considered a primal food? Does it belong in my 80 or 20? Is it doing me any harm? Is it doing me any good?

    What are your goals?

    I want to say that eating it once a week is no big deal, but it's that heavily processed frozen food that makes vegan/vegetarian lifestyle so unhealthy if it's all they eat.

    You're talking about Quorn the brand of frozen foods right?

    Ingredients for Quorn "Chik'n Tenders":

    Mycoprotein (78%), rehydrated egg white, dextrose, autolyzed yeast extract (I don't know what this is). Contains less than 2% or less of salt, pea fiber, natural flavors from non-meat sources, citric acid, calcium lactate, canola oil, gum arabic, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder.

    Not Primal...

    The main ingredient is a fungus, perhaps you could make mushroom patties or portabella steaks? Dice mushrooms, mix with egg and a little almond flour maybe, and fry it up in CO or butter. Sounds good to me.

    Yup the frozen mycoprotein stuff.
    My goals are to lose some fat and be healthy.


    The mince I usually have is this
    Ingredients
    Mycoprotein 88%, rehydrated egg white (free range), roasted barley malt extract.
    Nutritional Information
    per 100g:
    Energy 955KJ/229Kcal, Protein 23.1g, Carbohydrate Nil, Fat 15.2g, Fibre Nil, Sodium 0.3g

    No wheat or oil in it. I don't eat the other products they do such as the burgers and fillets in breadcrumbs.
