Well a friend and I were complaining about having to cook alot if one wanted to really eat good and she recommended this QUORN.  

Well not for me, I said, (being an O), but for my husband who is an A, I'll check it out.

After reading this, I decided I'd stick to other meatless foods for him!

Comments anyone?  It might be ok for some actually but they don't use organic products.

Quoted Text

"[Q]uorn is high in protein, but the amino acid profile is very high in phenylalanine, which makes quorn inadvisable for most type A's -especially A non-secretors, who often lack adequate levels of the enzyme intestinal alkaline phosphatase (a fat-busting enzyme inactivated by phyenylalanine). Also, this species of fungi may have immune suppressive effects, which may give some concern to those non-A individuals with infection disease susceptibilities."
an unnatural, processed vat of fungus, which makes it something I think all types
should avoid.


or search quorn to find more quotes and make up your own mind about it being ok or not for your specific type.

I did a thread on Quorn last year or more...there was some archived post from Dr. D that explained it well why to avoid it.

Also to consider its cultured version of the filamentous soil fungi Fusarium sp.
Can be pathogenic.

It does make a good meatless sausage however...

Well thanks for all this info.  I'm not touching the stuff!  

Anybody want to chime in about the meatless meat they do use?  Amy's?  Bocca Burgers, etc.?  Not for me... but for my A husband.

thanks!

Processed foods of all kinds are, even at their very best, processed foods.

Let's make our own food!

You can make your own 'Veggie Burger' from Scratch - TVP & Shredded fresh veggies.

Taoist foods bfrom chinatown also make a good "Ham" with Red Rice- Comes in a Log shape that you slice...I 'll to have a think what its called though.

texturized vegetable protein(aka TVP, this is

highly processed and best avoided)

Do NOT touch those Boca Burgers!  Those and most other meat substitutes* are horrid things like wheat gluten.

Use whole foods for your A husband's protein sources, such as tofu (beneficial for him), nuts and nutbutters like peanutbutter (okay, peanuts are technically a legume, but you get my point *lol*), and fish like salmon.  Fish is excellent for Type A's.  But your question was specifically about meatless fare, so like I said, tofu, for one, would be immensely preferable to any of those horrid faux foods like "Quorn" or Boca Burgers *shudder*.  Good old tofu is a beneficial for your A hubby.  It absorbs flavors nicely, too, and is great in things like curried stir-fries.

Oh, and for a veggie "burger", use a portabello mushroom cap as the "burger", cooked in ghee and hub's fave spices--ummmmmmmmmmmm!

* edited to add:  including "textured vegetable protein" - please avoid that stuff!!!  Whole, real foods are the way to go, baby!
