Discover a delicious, nutritious protein source with Quorn
Quorn® is dedicated to helping you make great tasting meals, with a vision to make delicious protein that's healthy for both you and the planet. That's why all Quorn products are powered by mycoprotein.
What is mycoprotein?
Mycoprotein is a sustainably sourced meat-free super protein that is naturally high in protein and fiber and low in saturated fat. To make mycoprotein, we take one of Earth’s most nutrient-rich foods, fungi, that grows in the soil. This fungus is known as Fusarium venenatum.
We then use the age-old process of fermentation - the same process used to create bread, beer and yogurt - to grow mycoprotein. This process creates a sustainable meat alternative that has a closer taste and texture to meat versus other plant-based proteins.
Because producing mycoprotein uses 90% less land and water than producing some animal protein sources, it is a great example of a more sustainable protein source for a growing global population.
