Quorn Packs a Healthy Punch

A healthy protein source - ingredients and recipes from Quorn

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Dec. 20, 2013) - For those looking to eat healthily, ensuring protein is incorporated into everyday meals can help achieve a nutritionally-balanced diet and high energy levels through the day.

With its high protein levels and low saturated fat content, products like Quorn Mince and Quorn Chicken Pieces are nutritionally healthy sources of protein, so they're ideal for people that lead a fit and active lifestyle, while enjoying great tasting, nutritious and varied meals.

Quorn Mince, meat-free Chicken Pieces and meat -free Sausages are the perfect protein-rich products to cook up family-favourite recipes. Whether it's fast, mid-week meals or tasty weekend feasts, the low saturated fat content and high protein credentials of these products make them a healthy choice.

Lucy Jones, spokesperson for Quorn and Channel Four dietician, said: "Incorporating a healthy protein source into our everyday diet is crucial for maintaining normal bones and muscle mass and growth. Protein is also a good source of energy, so for those trying to make exercise a regular part of their routine, it's vital to introduce varied protein- rich foods to help power through the day.

"Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of this. Our attitudes to our health and what we eat are changing and people are more aware of the need for protein within their diets. However, protein can often come with too much saturated fat and cholesterol, so it's important to find healthy protein sources.

"Guidelines suggest that adults should eat between 45g and 55g of protein a day. That's the equivalent of two pints of milk or seven to eight eggs, so it's essential that healthy proteins such as Quorn Mince and Quorn Chicken Pieces are introduced for a balanced and healthy diet. Quorn meals taste great and are low in saturated fat and can help maintain your cholesterol as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle."

Quorn offers over 100 products, including ingredients, snacks, and deli offerings. Quorn Mince, meat free Chicken and Sausages are low in saturated fat and high in protein and good sources of fibre - ideal for a balanced health diet.
