Quorn Turkey Burgers

Thank you to Quorn Company for sending me this box of "turk'y burgers" (meatless and soy-free burgers). Be on the lookout for my review of these burgers.

Meatless, soy-free and no turkey! The all-new Quorn Turk'y Burger has 50% LESS FAT than turkey burgers, is a GOOD SOURCE of PROTEIN and is a smart approach to healthy eating! Look out for this delicious new product in your local supermarket and natural food store!

From the Company's website:

What is Quorn?
Quorn™ is the brand name of a premium line of all-natural, meat-free frozen foods. The Quorn brand has been sold in the UK since 1985, and since that time has become the #1 retail brand of meat-free foods in the world! And since its US launch in 2002, Quorn products have become the best-selling frozen meat-free brand in natural food stores*!

Quorn products deliver great taste, fantastic quality and a wide variety of items to meet the demands of on-the-go lifestyles. You can depend on Quorn products to always be meat-free and soy-free. There are believed to be over 600,000 varieties of fungi in the world, some of which are the most sought after foods like varieties of mushrooms, truffles and morels. The principal ingredient in all Quorn products is mycoprotein (“myco” is Greek for “fungi”). The mycoprotein comes from Fusarium venenatum, which was originally discovered growing in a field in Buckinghamshire, England. In the late 1960s, initial product development began, soon recognizing mycoprotein’s potential as an efficient and nutritious protein source.
