    Does anyone know why canned fruit is synned?

    Hi, just wondering if anyone knows the reasoning behind canned fruit having syns. Is it because it's easy to eat very quickly? Or because of the juice? I forgot to bring my afternoon fruity snack so wondering if I could get canned peaches from the garage over the road and drain/rinse them to reduce the syns or something....

    It is something to do with the effects on the fruit of the canning process, which involves heat.

    I would have to guess that to preserve it for so long as cans do have long shelf life they will have a hell of a lot more sugar than fresh fruit. Just a guess

    The fruit tends to ferment in it's own sugar, which is what makes them so high in Syns. Nothing you can do about it I'm afraid. Sorry! I don't set the rules, I just follow them

    There are syns in canned fruits as the fruit is packed into the cans with juice. Then in order to preserve the food and prevent any fermentation (which is when a can 'blows') the cans are sealed and pass through a steam cooker/pasteuriser.

    So there are syns in canned fruits for two reasons:
    -the syn value takes into account the juice and this has syns in just as normal juice has (unless you are using a value that is a drained weight-I don't have a book to hand)
    -during the canning process the food is cooked, so as with all cooked fruit there are syns

    In my honest opinion if it stops you being starving and picking the less healthy version (for me a bar of chocolate) it's still a good plan

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks everyone. It hadn't occurred to me that they use heat in the canning process.

    By some stroke of luck, the shop was selling blueberries today! They hardly ever have fresh fruit! But this may be useful info for the future
