Have a helping of healthy protein*

With protein all the rage at the moment, find out why products like Quorn Mince and Quorn Meat Free Chicken Pieces are a healthy protein source* for people leading an active, healthy lifestyle.

Why is protein important?

Protein is made up of essential amino acids, which form the building blocks of our bones, muscles and blood - the great news is that Quorn products contain all of the essential amino acids! Protein is popular with healthy eaters, so if you need to increase your intake, there’s no better place to start. Protein, accompanied by exercise, could contribute to the growth in and maintenance of muscle mass which could in turn help you to increase your overall strength. It can reduce the time needed to recover after a tough or strenuous workout, and it forms an essential part of the antibodies that can keep you feeling healthy. It’s inside your hair and nails too, so eating plenty of protein can leave you looking, and feeling, great.

Why choose Quorn products?

It’s recommended that men should consume 55g of protein every day, and women 45g. That may sound like a lot but products like Quorn Mince and Quorn Meat Free Chicken Pieces are a healthy source of protein* and dietary fibre, and they are low in saturated fat too – bonus!  While eating lots of meat or drinking more milk might increase your protein intake to this level, it could also push your saturated fat count above the recommended daily allowance (RDA) so by opting for Quorn, you can still get the protein with less of the drawbacks. Quorn products can be paired with other healthy foods, like kidney beans to make delicious meals, like Quorn Chilli. Follow the simple cooking steps in our ‘how-to’ video here
