Twenty-two year-old McShane will be sharing her insights as a vegetarian and elite athlete over the coming months as part of her ambassadorship.

With a strict training schedule of more than 40 hours per week, good nutrition is an essential part of McShane’s success in her sport. Some Quorn products help to provide the vital protein and nutrients to meet her nutritional needs, as well as being an extremely versatile ingredient for people on the go.
Made with mycoprotein â€“ a meat free form of high quality protein and member of the fungi family â€“
many Quorn products are cholesterol free and high in fibre.
McShane said, â€œI am incredibly excited to have the support of a brand that I have enjoyed and loved for many years. As a vegetarian athlete I have been eating Quorn for a number of years as the products provide me with essential protein required as part of my performance and nutritional plan. More importantly, they are delicious too.â€
From stir-fries and tacos to barbeques and curries, Quorn’s range consists of delicious and versatile products that are ideal for those looking to reduce their meat intake without missing out on flavour, whatever the occasion.
â€œFor me, it is imperative to maintain a nutritious diet. I love Quorn because it is so versatile and allows me to experiment with different recipes without missing out on taste or varietyâ€ continued McShane.
Simplot Australia Dietitian, Shelley Dillon, added, â€œQuorn products provide an alternative for people who are looking to reduce the amount of meat they’re eating, or omit it altogether. Quorn is a source of high quality vegetarian protein and tastes great, too.â€
