Reading The Guardian on my way home from work I noticed an advert for ‘‘. I eat a lot of Quorn so I thought I’d go and have a look. The advertiser was Center for Science in the Public Interest. Although they don’t seem to be very scientific or impartial.

Quorn states on it’s packaging that it is ?mushroom in origin,? and ?made from a small, unassuming member of the mushroom family.?
Mushrooms are fungus so you would assume Quorn is a fungus of some sort? right? Okay well not the ‘Center for Science in the Public Interest’
They state on their site “Bah! It is made from a fungus found in a British dirt sample, and grown in huge fermentation vats. The fungus that makes up Quorn, Fusarium venenatum, has nothing to do with mushrooms. It is about as closely related to mushrooms as an octopus is related to humans.”

So let’s see then this group of ‘scientists’ don’t think that two types of fungus are similar then? I think I’ll stop reading there and just put them in the too much time and an axe to grind camp of websites then.
