Quorn is an alternative meat company attempting to create an alternative to traditional meals. The company, founded in the 1960’s, is one of leading manufacturers in the industry. The original goal of the company was to create a non-meat source of protein with similar texture and taste of meat. The result was Quorn. The company has since branched out of its UK roots into the global landscape. Dieters must ask, is Quorn the right choice to incorporate into a weight management plan?

Product Features

Quorn offers a complete line of meatless products with the same taste and texture of meat-based products. Some of the more popular products include chicken tenders and nuggets, burgers and ground burger. The products contain a minimum of 10g of protein per serving as well as vitamins and nutrients necessary for a balanced diet. A major concern is the calorie considerations. Several of the products are 300 calories or more per serving. This may not be ideal for individuals on a low-calorie diet.

Throughout the website, Quorn provides information relating to various diet plans. Typically, alternative meat products are considered staples of vegetarian diets. On the contrary, dieters can incorporate the product into a diet plan if they are attempting to lower cholesterol or attempting to reduce weight.

Finding Quorn products could potentially be the biggest obstacle. The product is not available in every country and the company does not provide an online store. You have to contact the customer service department in order to find a location selling the product.

In order to achieve maximum weight loss, you will need to include exercise as well as the correct amount of supplements.

    I bought several products because I was very excited to see something different to my normal veg diet but on both occasions I ate the chicken-style fillets, I was as sick as a dog. Now I am afraid to try the other products – cheese shnitzels and chicken style pieces. Have you had other people report this because as far as I know, I am not allergic to anything.
