Odd that your Tesco didn't have any - the Tesco near me has about six different kinds of block parmesan. Aldi does a good one, if you have a shop near you.

I use the pre grated one and weigh it as a hex. Never heard of pre grated cheese having syns,in fact t I am sure someone asked this at group and the consultant said it was fine
I agree, all cheese has syns its just a case of weighing it out (depending on what cheese you have) to make your HEX A.
OK, makes sense now. Yes, quite a lot of pre-grated cheese has starch in it. But usually not Parmesan, as it doesn't tend to stick together when grated. But a look at the ingredients list on the packet will tell you.
