Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question about the best way to cook, prepare and store your favourite Quorn® products?
Well, who could be better to ask than the experts themselves?
Our Quorn chefs have answered all of your more frequently asked questions with simple, inspiring, and easy-to-follow tips.
We have a range of gluten-free products. You can find them clearly marked with the gluten-free icon on our product page.
Mycoprotein is used as an ingredient in all Quorn products. It is made from a natural, nutritious fungus and is high in protein and fibre. It is also low in saturated fat and contains no cholesterol. Producing mycoprotein requires 90% less land, water and carbon emissions than producing animal proteins. This means it's also good for the health of our planet. Find out more here.
We're proud to say nearly all of our products are green or amber for salt content. What's more, the small number of exceptions to this are where we're trying to make it as simple as possible to swap from processed meat to meat-free products. We always try to minimise the amount of salt in our products.
There are currently a few Quorn products manufactured on sites that also handle nuts. Where this presents a risk, it is detailed in the ingredients declaration on the back of the package, in bold type.
There are a number of Quorn products that are Halal approved. As Quorn is a meat-free brand, this is to ensure there is no alcohol used in either the products or the manufacturing process. For a full list of halal products, please contact our customer service team.
The majority of Quorn products do not contain soy. We only use soy as an addition in prepared meals. An example of this would be ready-made meals that contain edamame beans or soy sauce.
Some of our Quorn products are kosher and have gained Kosher approval with the Manchester Beth Din. Please visit the Manchester Beth Din website and search "Quorn" for details of our approved products.
Mycoprotein is an ingredient in all Quorn products. It's a unique and nutritious protein that can form part of a healthy, balanced diet. High in protein and fibre, mycoprotein is also 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. What's more, they also suggest it may have beneficial effects on blood glucose and insulin, as well as hunger and energy intake. Mycoprotein also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. These include potassium, calcium and phosphorus, as well as smaller amounts of selenium, magnesium & zinc. Find out more here.
Many Quorn products are low in saturated fat. Where this is the case, we make sure to mention it on the front of our packaging. We do this to make it as easy as possible for you to choose healthier products, should you wish to do so.
