On November 27th, 2012, following a Huffington Post article on how to get protein without eating meat, Quorn Foods Inc. releases a statement offering other ways to get protein with meatless meals.
According to the Huffington Post article, “One of the most common myths about the vegetarian diet is that after ditching meat it becomes nearly impossible to meet the suggested guidelines for protein intake.” The article states that the USDA recommends women to get approximately 46 grams of protein a day, with men recommended to get 56. The article mentions that although protein is necessary for growth, a strong immune system and respiratory function, you do not need meat to get it.
The article reports that in actuality meat-free protein is better for you in the sense that it is generally lower in calories and fat. “The typical American diet makes it easy to eat heavy on the protein while consuming extra fat and calories your body doesn’t need,” states the article. The article mentions lentils, yogurt, beans, tofu, spinach and peanuts as ways to get your daily amount of protein without eating meat.
Quorn Foods Inc. commends a meat-free day at least once a week and knows additional ways to get protein through meatless meals. “Another way for you to get protein without eating meat is by choosing to eat a meat alternative,” says Quorn representative David Wilson. “With a meat alternative you still get the taste of meat along with cholesterol-free proteins, while staying away from the calories and fat found in actual meat products. Quorn offers an array of meat alternatives that replicate the taste and texture of meat deliciously”
Quorn launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein that replicates the taste and texture of meat while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories than meat substitutes. Quorn offers a wide range of products including ready to serve meals, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch.The wonderful taste of Quorn meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
