Personally i think the Asda meat-free mince can't be beaten. It's soya based so might be a good alternative for you. I used to always have quorn until someone recommended this, and now I won't use anything else.

My vegetarian daughter won't et anything but realeat mince for some reason. But then it will depend what you like because she says the otehrs still remind her of meat!!!

I haven't tried Realeat yet, or the Tesco/Asda ones, I was quite happy using Quorn until I went vegan. Such a shame that one of the most popular vegetarian 'substitutes' uses egg. :confused:

Anyway I'm sure the others will be fine, as long as I can still have a chilli/curry with them I'll survive! :)

Not all of them I'm afraid. Many quorn products are syn free but some have a syn value, and a lot of the quorn ready meals have a large syn value. The soya based products, basically everything else including supermarket own brands, are not syn free although the stuff like mince, pieces, sausages, burgers are mostly low in syns.
