Old El Paso - Syn Value Confusion!
Hi everyone! I hope someone can help me with this. I started slimming world last week but before I started I had bought a box of Old El Paso One Pan Rice Meal.
We had it last night to use it up and when I looked up the syns it's over 40 syns for the box! (Worked out about 11 for my serving!)
I'm not sure if this is right, the box contains a small packet of cream sauce (which I can understand having a few syns) but there's a large bag (about 200g) of dried rice. From the website it looks like they used the '1 syn per 20 cal' rule for the portion but I figure the rice should cut some of this out.
So I put the nutritional information into the syns calculator using rice as free food and it comes back as 1 1/2 syns which sounds much better!
Now I'm just stuck with which I should go with? It's a very big jump from 1 1/2 to 11 syns!
