Quorn is infact Fusarium venenatum, a soil mould (not athletes foot like some noobs think). The fungus is grown in continually oxygenated water in large, sterile fermentation tanks. The product is then dried and mixed with chicken egg albumen, which acts as a binder. It is then textured, giving it some of the grained character of meat, and pressed into meat forms
Quorn burgers, my favorite.
