Quorn®, the World leader in meat-free food has finally arrived in Singapore! Originating from the UK with over 30 years of presence, Quorn has successfully delivered over three billion meals across 18 countries worldwide, including the UK, the US, Australia and the majority of Western Europe.
If you are looking for a healthier option in your diet, Quorn range of deliciously meat-free protein products is the perfect solution for you. The main ingredient of Quorn products is mycoprotein, a nutritionally healthy source of protein which is high in protein, high in fibre, low in saturated fat, contains zero cholesterol, and is soy-free.
Mycoprotein is a nutritious protein source derived from a naturally occurring fungus through the process of fermentation, like in bread and soy sauce. As published in a clinical study review1 by the British Nutrition Foundation, studies suggest that mycoprotein may help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels, and maybe can even lower LDL cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to suggest that mycoprotein may have a positive effect on helping to control blood glucose levels. This is especially helpful in Singapore where 1 in 3 have a lifetime risk of developing diabetes. It is also shown that mycoprotein may make you feel full for a longer period so you’ll consume less calories per day, which can be beneficial in the management of obesity.
