Quorn®, the World leader in meat-free food has finally arrived in Hong Kong! Originating from the UK with over 30 years of presence, Quorn has successfully delivered over three billion meals across 17 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 and contains all of your essential amino acids, high in fibre, low in saturated fat, and contains zero cholesterol.
Mycoprotein is produced by a process of fermentation, like that used for yeast in bread and is clinically proven1 to reduce blood cholesterol among people who are suffering from high cholesterol, as well as help to manage diabetes by contributing to reduction of blood glucose and insulin levels. This is especially helpful in Singapore where 1 in 3 have a lifetime risk of developing diabetes. It is also shown that mycoprotein can make you feel full for a longer time versus an equivalent amount of chicken, which can be beneficial in the management of obesity.
Unlike other meat alternatives, there's no strong aftertaste, and Quorn products have the taste, appearance and texture of meat, perfect if you want to create healthier versions of your favourite everyday meals. Quorn ingredient-type products like Mince, Pieces and Swedish Style Meatballs are great at absorbing the flavours used in cooking, making it a truly versatile and convenient ingredient, enabling you to make loads of great tasting recipes like Stir-Fry dishes, Stews, and more. Quorn™ ready-to-cook options like Nuggets, Southern Fried Bites and Creamy Garlic & Mushroom Escalopes make the best quick and easy snacks which you can just pop into the air fryer or oven and enjoy without guilt!
Quorn is a responsible brand with commitment to making nutritious, great-tasting foods that are at the same time, sustainable for our environment. We are the first and only global meat-alternative brand to achieve third party certification of its carbon footprint figures. With Quorn meat-free products, this reduces the impact on the environment because the production of meat involves significant land and water use, and releases a huge amount of greenhouse gases into the environment. The Carbon Footprint of Quorn Mince is more than 90% lower than that of beef and the Water Footprint of Quorn™ Mince is 8x lower than that of beef2.
Quorn is now available in Hong Kong with 11 products, namely the ingredient-type products like Mince, Pieces and Swedish Style Meatballs that you can use for an endless array of dishes; ready-to-cook options like Nuggets, Southern Fried Bites and Creamy Garlic & Mushroom Escalopes for quick and easy snacks; burger patties like Sausage Patties, Burgers and Southern Fried Burgers for meat-free indulgence; and selections like Vegan Breaded Fillet and Vegan Hot & Spicy Burgers for the Vegan community.
