Quorn is a meat substitute available in the UK, Ireland, the US, Australia, Sweden and other countries that launched in 1985.


When Quorn first brought out their products, none of their range were suitable for vegans as they disappointingly used egg-white in every single product.


In late 2011, Quorn released their first vegan products, called the Quorn Vegan Burger, initially only available in the US. Following strong sales and increasing demand for vegan products from the UK market, 2 vegan products were launched in the UK in October 2015.


Quorn have now decided to make their entire range 100% vegan and completely phase out eggs.


Quorn told Rise of the Vegan are ‘working on it’, and that the egg will be replaced with potato starch. However, a ‘worldwide shortage of potato starch’ is slowing down their progress.

    What about using aquafaba instead of eggwhites?

    So happy to hear you are revising your recipe to eliminate eggs. You have a great product and I will definitely try all the vegan options that become available. We don’t need to promote cruelty by adding eggs to the recipe.

    Well it’s 2021,and although they have some great vegan products… They are still using eggs in many 🙁
