Quorn products, including Quorn’s Vegan range, that are available to purchase have not been involved with animal studies. The Quorn Vegan range has now been accredited with the Vegan Trademark by the Vegan Society, and the respective products will have the Vegan Society logo added to the back of pack.
Quorn and Quorn’s Vegan range contain an ingredient called mycoprotein. Mycoprotein was developed in 1968 and in order to satisfy the requirements of US and UK regulators that mycoprotein was safe for human consumption, a series of animal feeding trials were requested to be carried out by regulatory bodies. Since 1995 there have been no further requirements for such trials and Monde Nissin, Quorn’s new owner, is committed to ensuring no additional work will be carried out for the mycoprotein ingredient. Indeed the CEO of Monde Nissin, Henry Soesanto, is himself a Vegan.
