English term or phrase: quorn
I mean the food, defined as mycoprotein, a tiny relative of mushrooms that feeds on carbohydrates and grows prolifically in culture using a form of liquid fermentation, etc. etc. So, for example: pasta with quorn and vegetables. Is there a Polish word for quorn at all, or do I stick with the English (?) name?

Explanation:
Dear Renata, Quorn(TM) really is a trademark and should be used in Polish texts "as is". I have found a reference to a Polish site where "kworn" was used, but the link turned out to be broken, so I don't post it here.
BTW, you are wrong while saying that quorn is a "mycoprotein, a tiny relative of mushrooms that feeds on carbohydrates..." Mycoprotein cannot be a relative of mushrooms, because it is a PROTEIN, a chemical component of a mold fungus Fusarium graminearum. This organism (causing red rust on wheat) is the relative of mushrooms, and the protein purified from it is used for manufacturing the quorn product.

Thanks, I'll keep the name. By the way of quorn as a relative of mushrooms, if you want to correct this notion, write to the Hutchinson Encyclopaedia where I found this definition.

Explanation:
As far as I know, Quorn is the brand name and should, therefore, be left unchanged!
