What is in Quorn mince?

For anyone looking for a delicious and easy meat-free meal, Quorn mince is the perfect option. Made from mycoprotein, Quorn mince has a similar texture and taste to ground beef, making it an ideal substitute in a wide variety of recipes.

Bolognese is one of the most popular ways to use Quorn mince, and with good reason – the combination of rich tomato sauce and hearty ground meat is simply irresistible. Plus, Quorn mince is high in protein and low in fat, making it a healthier option than traditional ground beef. So next time you’re craving a hearty Italian meal, be sure to give Quorn mince a try. You won’t be disappointed.
