    Hi all,

    my partner and i are starting WW next week. I am considering using using quorn products as ive been told they are quite low in points. The thing is when i have sausages etc i am very cautious as i hate gristle and chewy bits. (makes me gag just writing that!) Was wondering with the quorn not actually being a meat product surely it wouldnt contain the nasties. Please correct me if im wrong.

    Thanks in advance

    No nasties whatsoever in quorn sausages.

    Its the fillets and pieces that are lowest in points though. I love quorn. Have it all the time.

    Hi there,sorry to say but i dont like the quorn sausages at all...
    All the other quorn products are lovely though,maybe they would be ok in a casserole,i just found them really dry(cardboard like)...
    Just my opinion...xx

    Thanks for all the replies :). Havn't been on for a few days so didnt realise i had so many. Will have to try them all i guess. So long as the windy thing isnt how it works for me. (im bad enough already!)

    lol @ mommyb

    I can't say quorn makes me windy and I eat a lot of it.

    Just had the beef style pieces today, cooked in red wine with mushrooms and mashed swede and it was to die for.
