I was still a vegetarian when Quorn was introduced to the United State's market. It has a very similar texture compared to meat, especially their chicken range. Its texture and taste was a closer mimic of meat than other processed vegetarian meat replacement I have access to at the time.

I think that it's a good transitional product for people who are reducing their meat consumption and becoming a vegetarian. It's a good option for vegetarians who are soy-sensitive as it claims to be soy-free. The meat-replacements in US is primary soy-derived, so it's one of the better choices.

Now it's a highly processed product and contains much flavouring and ingredients that is not desirable in my diet. For me the nutrients/ calories are no good and it'll be categorised as a "junk food" or "TV-dinner food." In addition, without discount Quorn is rather pricy when you look at US$/oz. For me I can make much healthier alternatives with fresh organic produce.

I think you need to determine what place does this produce will hold in your diet and what are your expectations for it. From there you can decide whether or not it's suitable for you.

Yeah, I've been eating it for a short period of time now, but I never really knew if it was truly nutritious.I've also noticed the "Quorn" company strategically keep a lot of inofrmation about the product a secret.

Thanks for your detailed reply, it has definitely giving me a better perspective of the product. :)

Individual Results may vary

Personally: I tried Quorn products when I lived in the Northern Territory (Australia) a few times when I was veg-curious and/or attempting to go vegetarian. When I actually turned vegetarian living in the Blue Mountains near Sydney nearly 2 years ago, I remembered how I did not like the taste of the products that much and ate products under different labels (Sanitarium and Fry's being the available products that suited me during transition and occasionally since I got used to not eating meat).

So for me, Quorn was a NO, however, for others, maybe it is to one's taste :)
