Quorn by Amelia on 2000-12-15 06:21:48

I couldn't stand it anymore, so I went to (d'oh!) www.quorn.com, where I learned all about this fabulous meat substitute that is made from myco-proteins which are apparently extracted from teeny tiny mushrooms that are native to Buckinghamshire, U.K. I quote: "When it is harvested, myco-protein has a similar appearance to bread dough and is composed of a mass of very fine fibres. Because of the similarity between myco-protein and meat fibres, Quorn products have a texture similar to that of lean meat although non-animal in nature. Myco-protein is very nutritious - it is low in fat, a good source of protein and fibre, cholesterol free and by definition contains no animal fats." Sad to report, Quorn is not yet available to consumers in the USA. Just another poncey European delicacy!
