Did you know that protein is the single most important nutrient you need for weight loss and a leaner body? It’s considered as a powerhouse for a number of reasons. First off, it makes you feel full for a longer amount of time as it stays in the stomach for longer hours. This is because high-protein foods take more work to digest and metabolise. Protein also helps you burn calories in the digestion process as according to studies, high-protein consumption allows you to burn about 80 to 100 calories per day.
However, losing weight isn’t the only thing you need to do to get the body you want. In achieving a leaner body, you also need to build and develop your muscles, which kind of sets a contradiction as your muscle mass tends to be cut down when you reduce weight. So how does protein help? Eating a good deal of protein allows you to prevent muscle loss while on the process of losing weight, and when combined with heavy strength training, it helps keep your metabolic rate high.
To put it simply, Quorn products are good sources of protein. We use natural nutritious fungus from the soil instead of using livestock to make the world’s diet healthier and more sustainable. Once it has undergone fermentation similar to food such as bread and soy sauce, the fungus then gets converted to mycoprotein. It is Quorn’s main ingredient that is high in protein, high in fibre, low in saturated fat and has no cholesterol, making it a good companion if you’re aiming for a healthier and leaner body!
From ingredient products like Mince, Pieces, Swedish Style Balls to other ready-to-cook products such as Nuggets, Burgers, and Sausages, Quorn provides you with a variety of delectable dishes you wouldn’t want to miss. You can also incorporate Quorn into delicious meals that are 100% meat-free. Take a look at these yummy suggestions and give them a try!
