Survey reveals a shift in attitudes towards eating healthier foods

7 July 2016  •  Author(s): Victoria White, Digital Content Producer

In a survey of more than 1,000 people across Britain, 81% of respondents said they would be prepared to switch to food ingredients that are high in protein and low in saturated fats, as long as they could continue to cook their loved ones’ favourite meals.


The research, carried out by Quorn, also revealed that 52% of those asked said healthier doesn’t mean less tasty, while 53% think using ingredients which are better for you does not mean the variety of dishes available is not as wide.

Quorn says that not only does the survey reveal that people are ready to eat healthier dishes, it would seem public perception of healthy ingredients has shifted.

Healthy food without compromising on taste

Commenting on the research, Peter Harrison, Marketing Director at Quorn Foods said: “It is great that people are switching to foods which are better for them, and for their families.

“The stereotypical view used to be that you can’t have healthy, tasty food, but these figures now show that this is not the case, with the majority of respondents agreeing that nowadays you can have healthy food without compromising on taste.

“There has been much made of this country’s problems with obesity in recent times, so simple solutions to eat healthy forms of protein, such as Quorn Mince, in everyday family meals, are significant.

“Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, snacks, or dinner we offer delicious meat free alternatives to almost every recipe that can be thought of. Our Meat Free Mince is perfect for a delicious Spaghetti Bolognese or our Meat Free Chicken Pieces can go into an exotic and tasty Thai Green Curry – with both products being a nutritionally healthy protein source and low in saturated fat.”
