Frequently Asked Questions

Our Quorn chefs have answered all of your more frequently asked questions with simple, inspiring, and easy-to-follow tips and how-to videos.
Mycoprotein is used as an ingredient in all Quorn products. It is made from a natural, nutritious fungus, and is high in protein, high in fibre, low in saturated fat, and contains no cholesterol. Producing mycoprotein requires 90% less land, water and carbon emissions than producing animal proteins, so 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 and the small number of exceptions to this are where we try to make it as simple as possible to swap from processed meat to meat free. We always try to minimise the amount of salt in our products.
There are currently a few Quorn products which are manufactured on sites which also handle nuts. Where this presents a risk, this is detailed on the ingredients declaration on the back of pack, in bold type.
There are a number of Quorn products which 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 process of manufacture. For a full list of halal products, please get in touch with our customer service team.
The majority of Quorn products do not contain soy. We only use soy as an addition in prepared meals, for example ready 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, 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 fibre, low in saturated fat and contains no cholesterol. This high-quality protein contains all nine essential amino acids which 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. Find out more here.
Many Quorn products are low in saturated fat. Where this is the case, we call this out on the front of our packs, to make it as easy as possible for you to choose healthier products.
