The filamentous fungus (or "mold") Fusarium venenatum is known mainly as the source of the mycoprotein that is marketed in meat substitute products known commercially as Quorn. The development of Quorn and the manufacturing process used to make it have been reviewed by Wiebe (Wiebe 2002 and references therein).
