Where do quorn products fit in ? they're fairly low in carbs but are made (I believe) from a something similar to mushrooms, so are they protein or neutral ?

Quorn is made by extracting and concentrating protein derived from a type of fungus.
It is therefore a concentrated protein, and should be used in Food Combining as a protein.
