Quorn mycoprotein, an ingredient in all Quorn products, is a nutritious protein that can form part of a healthy, balanced and varied diet. It is high in protein, high in fibre, low in saturated fat and contains no cholesterol. This high-quality protein contains all nine essential amino acids which are not produced in the body and must be obtained through the food we eat. Quorn mycoprotein contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, it is a source of riboflavin and is high in choline, folate, manganese, phosphorus and zinc.
According to the UK’s Nutrient Profiling Model (Food Standards Agency, 2004/5), 90% of Quorn’s global portfolio is considered non-HFSS or healthier choices. HFSS foods are those which are high in fat, salt and saturated fat. You can find out more about this here.

Quorn is perfectly safe to reheat, so long as it has been kept nice and cool in the fridge and is eaten within 48 hours. Please ensure that the food is piping hot throughout before serving and remember, don’t reheat more than once.
Quorn first went on sale in UK in 1985, and has since served over 7 billion meals across 20 different countries. Quorn has been approved for sale by some of the world’s leading health agencies, including the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Health Canada (HC), European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Safety Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).
So it’s not just us, but also the world’s leading food regulators who are confident that Quorn is safe. The only suggestion that it isn’t has come from an American website called Centre for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). We find it puzzling that CSPI – a purported food safety organization – would be opposed to a range of safe products that bring better choice and variety to those looking to reduce the amount of meat in their diet. And it’s particularly strange given the multitude of other foods on the market today that have proven high allergenic properties where CSPI’s voice is all but silent.
Consider soy; according to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), soy is “one of the more common food allergies, especially among babies and children.” CSPI has not sounded the alarms and called for the removal of soy products from store shelves, as it has with Quorn. This is interesting, given CSPI’s collaboration with the American Soybean Association (ASA), allegedly dating back to 1991, and their rather flattering coverage of the ingredient in recent years. In 2014, CSPI’s founder, Michael Jacobson, was a featured speaker at an event sponsored by the ASA. CSPI also published a favourable report on soy later that same year. We think the public is right to wonder whether the motives behind CSPI’s long-standing campaign to disparage Quorn have been pure in nature.
