Your first story comes from the UK and looks at a new product being launched by Quorn – the UniQuorn vegan nugget.
The nugget has been aimed at children and ‘picky’ eaters after the success of their dinosaur bites range.
The breadcrumb-coated nuggets are made of Quorn’s patented vegan meat substitute, which is said to be “naturally high in protein and fibre, low in saturated fat, and sustainable.”
We had a look at the process of making Quorn and its impact compared to red meat and found that because it consumes less water, emits fewer greenhouse gases, and utilises less land, it is better for the environment.
Quorn said that their child-friendly products will help families to ‘reduce their meat intake whilst giving a magical twist to the usual mealtime routine’.
Gill Riley, the brand’s marketing director, said:
“We know parents have a lot on their plates without worrying about how to keep their kids engaged at mealtimes too.
Our new UniQuorns are tasty, crunchy and 100 per cent guaranteed to please even the pickiest eater!
We’re so proud of how well our Roarsomes nuggets were received, so it felt right to expand our fantasy food range with a brand-new vegan product that enables families to have a magical meal which is healthy for them and the planet.”
The new UniQuorns launched in Iceland on 31 August 2022 and will hit the freezers in Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco throughout October and November.
