    Is there any link that actually proves this? There's always some rumour going around telling you something you're eating is poisonous, something you're drinking is a drug, something you're washing yourself with causes cancer etc etc.

    Please post real reference links that state that this is poisonous. Otherwise, it looks like you are just helping to push the corporate propaganda by Gardenburger's competitive campaign against Quorn. Usually those kinds of videos are not taken down lightly.

    It seems it's not poisonous, but can provoke extreme allergic reactions. It's a trial and error issue in my opinion, how do you know you're allergic until you try it? (Unless you want to pay for an allergen test)
    @HappyPiggies14, if you look at the header this was posted in the vegetarian forum.

    And I still say you are buying into the corporate scare mongering tactics by Garden Burger. http://www.undueinfluence.com/milloy.htm

    Biomass food as a meat replacement is not a bad thing. Sure, straight up fruits and veggies are better, but we need meat replacements to help move veganism forward.

    @CavySpirit thanks for the link, that makes it a lot more clear. I don't eat meat substitutes so I'm not totally up to date on the latest inter-company wars, but I had a feeling there was no way Quorn was poisonous.

    Mushrooms are fungus too, they aren't poisonous. There are lots of different types of fungus, and many aren't mould.
