I tried it yesterday and its amazing.
Can anyone tell me anything about it? Good for you?
Bad for you?
I've read mixed reviews on it just like everything some love it some hate it.
I cook DH and DD meat, chicken, fish but I just don't like eating meats of any kind so I just go without. I'm trying to find foods for "me" to eat.

Who eats QUORN?

The first thing you should know is that while they are meat and dairy free, they do contain egg. I've heard they're working on getting rid of the egg but haven't yet. I've had some of their products, they're not as good as fry's in my opinion (which are totally vegan). If you can get fry's (most woolies have a pretty good range), I'd try that instead, as their "chicken" pieces, burger patties and schnitzels are so much like real chicken you'd hardly know the difference. Also their "beef" burger patties are delicious. But back to quorn, I liked their spinach schnitzel thing, but the sausage rolls were dry and yuck. Their "chicken" pieces (like for stir fry's etc) are pretty good but not as good as fry's. I haven't tried their "chicken" burger patties, but hubby said they're not as good as fry's (which he LOVES). I think quorn have good flavoured products, they're just not so great with the textures. I would definitely give your kids a try of these foods too, so much better for their health.

Oh and are veggie products ok for children? I was just going to cook mine separate.

I really like quorn. Their website, when I last looked, said they had no intention of making it a vegan product.
It's high protein and low fat, very good for you, no animal fats.
I use the mince a lot for pasta, shepherds pie, chilli con carne, tacos and savoury or curried mince.
The sausages are very tasty too! I've used the pieces in burritos and wraps, they are nice.

It's more like mushroom than mould!
I love Quorn stuff and disagree about the sausage rolls -- I think they're pretty spot on.
The Fry ones are good too -- we had 'chicken' burgers last night that were good. I also really like a brand that sounds like 'Sindarian', or something like that? Their Veggie Bites are amazing.

Don't let it bother you what others say about it. I personally don't see the difference between mushrooms and 'mould'/ 'fungus'/'algae'.

I like the Quorn products - I ate them for years in the UK before they were available here too (but the Linda McCartney stuff will always be my favourite!!)

My kids eat and like it. I don't eat eggs so i've never tried it.
I'm a fan of frys though.
