Frequently asked questions

Quorn low fat sausages were recently included in a Dispatches programme looking at the accuracy of product claims made by a number of food companies. The programme claimed that tests conducted on Quorn low fat sausages showed fat content levels higher than that stated on pack. 

We were notified of the findings by Dispatches on 1 April 2014, and were given less than three days to investigate the matter and respond.  We immediately commissioned independent tests by a UKAS accredited laboratory, on one of the two production batches tested by Dispatches.  The results of these independent tests, along with the frequent tests we conduct as standard, contradict the claims made in the programme. The results show the fat content of Quorn low fat sausages to be in line with the expected level as stated on pack (2.7g per 100g).  These findings show that Quorn low-fat sausages are fully compliant with European regulations and can be accurately described as a low-fat food. 

Quorn fillets were also referenced within the programme, but the nutritional values of these products were shown to be within regulatory guidelines. 

We take the health and quality commitments that we make to you, the people that eat and enjoy Quorn products, extremely seriously.  We have a moral and legal duty to make sure that the nutritional values of our products are accurate and as described.

Unfortunately, we can not influence any individual stores to stock our products. Instead, we can only make recommendations to each Head Office that they do so. If you continue having difficulty in obtaining Quorn products we suggest that you contact the manager at your local store and make your request to them directly.

Quorn products are currently available in the UK, USA, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands and Australia.

At the present time we cannot claim Kosher status for any Quorn product. Consultations with London Beth Din have indicated that mycoprotein is almost certainly Kosher but we cannot guarantee that the other ingredients used in product manufacture are too. In addition whether the product is Kosher Parve or Kosher Dairy should be considered.

No. Since all Quorn products contain a small amount of egg white, and most also contain milk ingredients, they are not suitable for vegans.

We have been made aware of a lawsuit filed against the USA Food & Drug Administration (FDA). We are not able to comment on the details of the lawsuit itself, but can confirm that the comments made in regards to mycoprotein, which is an ingredient in Quorn products, are misleading and unsubstantiated.  Quorn is a safe, well tolerated food, and has been classified as such by the world’s most stringent food safety regulators, including the FDA, the Food Standards Agency, and Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
