thats about it really

we eat a fair bit of Quorn in our house which I make into boloneses, chilli con carne etc

I wasondering when I could give it to DD the ingredients on the pack are

mycoprotein
rehydrated egg white (free range
roasted barley malt extract

sodium is 0.1g (which I think is 0.15g salt)

should I even consider it?

I think I gave it to mine when they were about 9m.
Thereis alot of "stuff" about Quorn around - whether it's safe at all, never mind for babies but I reckoned (and my HV agreed) that since they weren't going to eat it every day and not eat loads of it, it couldn't do them any harm if, indeed, it does anyone any harm anyway!

Been trawling through the archives and found this

Quorn and textured vegetable protein

The manufacturers of Quorn recommend that it is not introduced into a child’s diet before the age of two years. Textured vegetable protein may be difficult for young babies to digest, and its salt content must be watched.

Think it's from the veg society website.

Mycoprotein is fungus! I don't eat it myself so I wouldn't feed it to a baby.

do you eat muhsrooms?!

It's not the same as mushrooms. Not to get into a big argument but it wasn't approved by Food & Drug Administration in the US for ages because test group had migraines etc. I know it's been available here for a long time though. There are some old threads with better information.

well knowing what quorn does to my digestive tract and the copious build up of excess, noisy and incredibly disgustingly pungent gasses that has my DH leaving the room .. I wouldn't

I really wouldn't want to deal with a baby's nappy after eating quorn
