What is Quorn?

Many years of research and development in the 1960s identified a tiny member of the fungi family that could be converted into a protein. This led to the mass production of mycoprotein, the unique ingredient that makes Quorn products so special.

Fermenters are used to grow and harvest the protein. It is not dissimilar to the way that production of beer or yoghurt works.

What was amazing about this new protein was its ability to replicate the taste and texture of meat. The unique fibrous nature of Quorn means it can provide the textural experience of eating meat. Its ability to take on flavour and lack of aftertaste means it can deliver the taste of meat and meat dishes brilliantly
