    It is, and it's the only bean that is a complete protein, hence used as a meat substitute.

    I don't think eating Quorn makes you a hypocrite, i thnk drinking wine and beer and eating cheese made with rennet does.

    You can spot the true veggie - they will eat beef flavour crips but not cheese and onion.
    Yes but bacteria have no real ability to think and so it doesn't really matter if bacteria die. If you cannot eat bacteria or otherwise harm it you couldn't live.

    Yes one of my relatives eats chicken flavoured crisps yet he's a vegetarian. THing is there was some problem with crisps where the cheese and onion were not suitable for vegetarians but the meat flavoured ones were. No idea if it was Walkers or not.

    YOu like the taste? how?
    I must be strange then, but I think Quorn has really nice taste and texture. Although I do go "ewwwwww, it's quorn, i'm not eating that" before I eat it.

    i dont give a damn what they eat as long as they dont force me to do the same.

    The alternative to meat.

    Is it me, or does anyone else think that people who eat Quorn are hypocrites?

    For those who don't know, Quorn is a vegatarian alternative to meat (mince), it tastes, smells, and has the same texture as regular meat, but it is actually industrally made.

    What annoys me, is loads of vegetarians eat Quorn quite readily because they want to eat meat, without actaully eating an animal. I think it's quite hypocritical given that these people have chosen to abstain from eating meat, yet are quite happy to eat its alternative.

    Does anyone agree?
    Sorry, I don't agree. Quorn is extremely low in fat and high in protein. It's perfect for veggies and non-veggies, alike. I love the stuff (although I think my bathroom rug tastes more like meat).
    I really can't see how you find it hypocritical? Even if someone likes the taste of meat, but not the idea of eating animals, it hardly makes them a hypocrite to eat quorn or bacon crisps, or whatever, does it? What great contradiction are they making?
    They're simply saying: "No, I don't want to chomp on that dead cow, thank you - I'll just nibble on these bacon fries." Moral stances and tastebuds should not be confused, my friend!

    No animals were harmed in the making of this post.
