2. Reinagel, M. (2017, November 16). What Is Mycoprotein? Retrieved from https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-mycoprotein/
Mycoprotein is a thread-like fungus found in soil. It's not exactly a mushroom but it has hints of a mushroom-like taste. In diets, mycoprotein acts as a plant based protein and is typically used as a meat substitute. Right now, it's typically sold in the brand "Quorn" which sells plant based chicken nuggets and ground beef substitutes.
