What Meat Substitute Builds as Much Muscle as Animal Protein?

If you think you need to eat real meat to build muscle, think again!

For many gym-goers, building muscle means that you have to eat protein.  And for many, this means consuming chicken, fish, beef, and pork.  But did you know that a new study revealed that there is a non-animal protein that will build as much muscle as meat? What is it? Quorn!

By eating Quorn you can build as much muscle as by eating animal proteins.  Scientists say that it has high “bioavailability” which means that Quorn contains a lot of protein that can be used by the body.

This study, which was published in the British Journal of Nutrition, said that Quorn contains protein that is used as the building blocks for muscles. In case you haven’t seen Quorn yet, it is a mycoprotein that is made from a fungus, Fusarium venenatum.  It is fermented like yogurt or beer.

Another benefit of Quorn is it benefits the environment. This is in contrast to the meat industry that has had a detrimental effect on our environment.  In fact, Mandy Dunlop, who was involved in this experiment said, “Quorn’s mycoprotein is produced with far less impact on the environment.”

Since 1985, Quorn’s sales have increased as people are becoming more concerned with the environment, their health and the ethical implications of the meat industry.

In addition to Quorn, there are many other non-animal options for protein such as quinoa, tofu, lentils, seeds, and nuts! So, what are you waiting for? If you want to achieve better health, help our environment and end the inhumane practices of the commercialized meat industry, try Quorn or other non-animal proteins today! It just might change your life for the better!
