On February 18, 2013, Quorn Foods offers a statement with regard to the benefits of meatless meals, as discussed in an article by the Winona Daily News.

The Winona Daily News article states that eating healthy is an obstacle for those on a budget and who claim that the relatively expensive cost of meat is an issue. Regardless, the article asserts a growing trend toward the popularity of meatless meals. Multiple options are listed for considering a meal that excludes meat.

The article reports that people who gravitate towards meatless meals will gain benefits from their diet choice. According to the article, those with a habit of eating vegetarian meals are stated to consume less calorie and fat content. As a result, followers of this type of diet tend to have a lower risk for heart disease and weigh less.

A description is given labeling what it means to be vegetarian or a vegan. Additionally, the article addresses concerns that one may express if they were concerned with inadequate protein intake. Beans, nuts, and seeds are all mentioned as alternative sources to animal protein. A point is also made that many popular food choices such as pizza, pasta, and burritos can be prepared without meat and the taste does not suffer because of the omission.

Quorn Foods representative David Wilson shares some of his thoughts with eating healthy on a limited budget. “I think it is a common misconception among the general population to think that a meatless diet equates to dull and unsatisfying meals. As long as one is knowledgeable about the food they eat, there should be no worry about not eating enough or not getting required nutrients, like protein.”

Wilson adds that meat may not even be missed if a meal is both filling and tasty. “I would like to think that if anybody has meals prepared for them, without telling them how it was made, it probably wouldn’t even occur to them that something was missing. I recommend trying a product from Quorn range. Quorn Foods replicate the taste and texture of meat deliciously with the extra benefit of being 80% lower in saturated fat.”

Quorn Foods launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn foods use 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. Quorn Foods offer 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.
