    sainsburys frozen finely chopped vegtables

    I use these finely chopped veg to make bolognase,shepherds pie and my own soup and pot noodle type soup. I've always assumed these were free foods as the ingredients are listed as 34% carrot 33% onion and 33% celery. I've just noticed that the nutritional info states that its 5.8%fat how can that be when there is no added fat? Can anyone shed any light and also should I syn these?
    Other info- 80calories per 100 g
    Thank you

    Well the plot thickens!! Its actually 6.4% fat (showing as medium on that wheel thing not even low!). I've rang Sainsburys and the lady in Customer Care couldnt help but is as bemused as me so is passing the query over to the technolgy dept (or something!) and she'll ring me back as soon as she knows

    Its very strange indeed

    Thanks for looking into this - it is indeed odd.
    However, I have been using this product since I began my journey 7 weeks ago and have lost 7lbs so far (2lb holiday gain which had nothing to do with this product - it was the cornish cream teas that got me!) so, eating this product has not been detrimental to my weight loss. I havent syned them and will continue to have them as a free food but I would be so interested to see what sainsburys have to say.

    What a load of toss for a reply.

    Thank you for your email regarding the nutritional values of our chopped vegetables.

    The relevant departments have confirmed that the nutritional information is based on the recommended cooking instructions and therefore includes the oil which will be added. Hopefully you will find this information useful. If you require any further assistance please feel free to give us a call on 0800 636262 and one of my colleagues will be happy to help.

    So the nutritional information on the packet is based on ingredients which you might or might not add and aren't even in the packet in the first place?

    Is that even legal? It is certainly very misleading!

    I sent them a pic of the ones I was on about but I think they've got it wrong.It's carrot,onion and celery.Now I would use this to put in stews,casseroles,add them to mince.I wouldn't fry them first before adding them.

    I think it needs someone else to email in and see if they get the same answer.

    What a load of crap!!!! You might just boil and have as a plate of veg? You may just add to a veg soup with no fat!!!!

    Right - as they havent rang me back I'm going to contact them online too - see what answer I get!

    Have had a look at my packet and it does say its the nutritional value when cooked as instructed (with a small amount of oil - how much do they define as "small"?!)

    I still think its a really silly thing to do

    It should just be what is in the packet and not what you might cook it in.I use coconut oil so would the fat be more or less.

    If they had cooked it in oil before packaging it I could understand it.

    I still think it's mis leading as if I only went by the nutritional values then I wouldn't buy it.

    But we are smart on here and know those veg don't have fat added to them.
