Do you know that reducing your meat consumption is a greener choice? That is one of the reasons, I enjoy meat alternatives. I also just like the variety and the ease of cooking most plant based meat alternatives. So when I heard about Quorn products, soy free meat alternatives, I was very curious to try them. Quorn did provide product in order to facilitate review.
What Is Quorn?
The main constituent of Quorn™ is Mycoprotein, a naturally occurring, high quality form of protein. Quorn™ is produced using a fermentation process very similar to brewing. This remarkable ingredient is then used as the base for more than 100 different food products ranging from grounds to cutlets, to entrees and snacks.
Quorn™ is many things to many people. I found this table from the Quorn website very informative:
- To the food-lover it’s a simple way to make all your favorite meals, healthier.
- To the weight-watcher it’s a way of dramatically reducing fat and calorie intake without trying to survive on soup and salad.
- To the healthy eater it’s a cholesterol-free source of protein, fiber and essential amino acids.
- To the vegetarian it’s the nutritional benefits of meat – without hurting a hair of any animal’s head.
- To the environmentalist it’s an alternative to turning the world’s rain forests into grazing land and an alternative to depleting the dwindling fish-stocks of the ocean.
Is Quorn Vegan?
Not all Quorn is vegan, but Quorn does offer a vegan meat alternative product line. It has a pretty big label with the word Vegan in white on a black background. Using Quorn’s Vegan Meatless Pieces, Fillets and Spicy Patties – you can create delicious tasty meals for everyone to enjoy. They also have Vegan Fishless Sticks and Meatless Chipotle Cutlets.
Where To Buy Quorn:
You can buy Quorn at Publix, Sprouts, Kroger, WholeFoods, and Walmart. You can even order Quorn online!
Is Quorn Healthy?
“Mycoprotein, an ingredient in all Quorn products, is a unique and nutritious protein that can form part of a healthy, balanced diet. It is high in protein, high in fiber, low in saturated fat and contains no cholesterol. This high-quality protein contains all nine essential amino acids that are not produced in the body and must be obtained through the food we eat. Studies suggest that mycoprotein may help maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels and may have beneficial effects on blood glucose and insulin, hunger and energy intake. Mycoprotein also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, calcium & phosphorus, and smaller amounts of selenium, magnesium & zinc.” -Quorn Website
I was fortunate enough to try out several Quorn products and must say I was truly impressed. Quorn™ has an ability to replicate the taste and texture of meat exceptionally well- better than any meat alternative that I have tried! I had the chance to try Chik’N Nuggets, Chik’N Patties, and the Gruyere Cheese Cutlets.
I prepared the nuggets as a snack for my kids when they came home from school and they really liked them. They were so simple to make, I just heated them in the oven and served them. I like that my kids were having a healthy protein snack that they enjoyed.
I used the Chik’N patties for my lunch and I loved that they were easy to prepare in singe servings and I just put the patty between two slices of good bread with some lettuce and hot pepper jelly and they were a nice warm, healthy lunch for me. The Gruyere Cheese Cutlets made a nice dinner and everyone loved them (except my daughter picked the gruyere off of her’s because she doesn’t like melted cheese!) I enjoyed all of the Quorn products that I tried and they are great to have on hand to cook up something healthy quickly.

I hope this answers the question, “what is Quorn?” as well as provides information about where to buy Quorn and good Quorn recipes to try.
