On February 25, Quorn Foods responded to a recent article from Care 2, which reports that cooking vegetarian recipes and eliminating meat intake can reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

According to Care2, “millions suffer from fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by months of widespread pain, often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, cognitive difficulties, headaches, low back pain, and other problems. Its cause is unknown and there is no known cure.”

Studies showed that sufferers of fibromyalgia experienced significantly less pain when they were switched to a strict vegan or vegetarian diet, reports Care2. According to the research on Care2, the study indicated that people suffering from fibromyalgia should adhere to a strict vegan or vegetarian diet, rather than just eating mostly vegetarian. “Fourteen fibromyalgia sufferers were put on a mostly vegetarian Mediterranean diet for two weeks and unfortunately did not see significant improvement.”

Quorn Foods representative David Wilson responded to the article, saying that there are a lot of vegetarian recipes out there that people can try that can help improve over-all health. “If you suffer from fibromyalgia but the thought of switching to a vegetarian diet is not appealing, maybe you should try a meat substitute,” he said. “Quorn products taste great, and if they can help reduce your symptoms then it is worth trying for the sake of your health?”

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.
