Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
On December 20, 2012, Quorn Foods Inc. releases a statement following an Acorn article by Elizabeth Pemberton, regarding the benefits of a vegetarian healthy food diet.
According to the Acorn article, “Drew’s Environmental Action League (DEAL), along with co-sponsors Earth House and Students for Sustainable Food, held a talk about popular vegetarian and vegan diet.” According to speaker Stephanie Geraci, nutrition major at St. Elizabeth College, “I found that I had more energy and felt more healthy. I also like the food, have less cravings for junk food and save money because meat is usually very expensive.”
The article mentions some of the benefits of a vegetarian diet, as improving heart health, reducing your chance of a chronic disease, and preventing obesity. The article says that, vegetarians have been known to have a lower blood pressure, as well as a lower risk of heart disease.
According to the article, “Vegetarians and vegans are also 20 percent less likely to have stomach, bladder and lymphatic cancer. Moreover, the high fiber intake of vegetarians and vegans reduces cravings for food as their diets are more filling, which can help weight management.” The article mentioned that Geraci listed in her presentation that, fruits, nuts and seeds, and fresh vegetables are some of the important foods on a vegetarians shopping list.
Quorn Foods Inc. understands the importance of a vegetarian healthy food diet and encourages all to try it every now and then. “This article does a great job sharing the benefits of a vegetarian diet in a factual manner,” says Quorn representative, David Wilson. “If you are not a vegetarian but would like to limit your meat intake, try a great tasting Quorn meat alternative. These products 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.
