Default mycoprotein

Are there any here with myco protein experience? The best fake meat I had ever was made from that. It is from fungi! I assume it is complete but even tgat is unclear. With so much back and forth about soy it would be good to have an alternative

12 Are there any groups of people who should not eat Mycoprotein?
Vegans cannot eat Mycoprotein owing to the egg content. People who are known to have an adverse reaction to fungi should avoid Mycoprotein. Mycoprotein is safe for children.

Quorn™ products are perfectly safe for children and babies but because of the high energy requirements demanded by the rapidly growing child we do not recommend that Quorn™ products replace meat totally in the diet of young children and babies (less than 3 yrs old) because of their low energy densities (number of calories per gram) and satiating (satisfaction of appetite) effects. However as part of a well balanced diet Quorn™ products are perfectly safe to introduce to young children in small amounts.

Note; most Quorn™ products are unsuitable for coeliac sufferers and people who are gluten intolerant since they contain either roasted barley malt extract (brown products), wheat ingredients, or are made in factories which handle wheat ingredients.

Lactose is present at low levels in most of the range of Quorn™ products. Therefore whether or not Quorn™ products are suitable for people who are lactose intolerant depends on the product type and the particular sensitivity of an individual to lactose. infosheet

I agree with you. I love Quorn foods! To me, they taste better than the real thing!
