Quorn Foods Inc. Affirms a Vegetarian Diet May Prevent Heart Disease

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 05, 2013

On March 5, Quorn Foods Inc., a meat substitute company, comments on an article posted by Examiner, which details a study’s finding that going meatless might reduce the risk of heart disease.

Representative David Wilson of Quorn Foods said there are many benefits to adopting a vegetarian diet. “Meat gives a lot of protein, but it’s not completely necessary,” Wilson said. “There’s fat in meat, even if it’s cut very lean. However, some vegetables and legumes, like beans, have a lot of protein as well, but without all the fat and cholesterol from meat.”

According to the article, the study, administered by the University of Oxford, found that cutting out meat could actually reduce the risk of heart disease by a third. The article also said heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S., but can be avoided by choosing a healthier lifestyle, including eating better.

The study included data from 45,000 people from England and Scotland, the article said. From 1990 to 2009, researchers studied their health, including physical activity, alcohol intake, educational level, socioeconomic background, age and if they smoked before. Results showed that vegetarians had lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and body mass index than people who ate meat. Researchers also discovered that vegetarians had a 32 percent lower chance of dying from cardiovascular disease.

“For a long time people thought vegetarianism was unhealthy because it was thought that there wasn’t enough protein in fruits and vegetables,” Wilson said. “Now, with meatless meals and other types of meatless alternatives, people are getting more protein with all the vitamins and antioxidants from veggies. It’s also easier to find vegetarian recipes to make a wide variety of dishes.”

The article concluded that vegetarian diets are also known to help lower risk of some types of cancer, osteoporosis, renal disease and arthritis.

Quorn launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein that replicates the taste and texture of meat while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories than meat substitutes. Quorn offers a wide range of products including ready to serve meals, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
