On EE you take whichever is the lowest of the red and green syn values - so the values given for the green plan here also apply to EE

I was quite confused by this because i group we were told that Ainsley Harriet cous cous was free!
But now im goin it alone I looked at my app and it states that it has a syn value :confused:!
Better start counting it!
Which is the lowest syn one?

Just says 100g pack online, not cooked weight.
They do now say "excluding oil & butter, 100g pack ", the syn value is for the whole pack. It used to be per 100g cooked like kt_baybeh said at the top of this thread, but now it's

Sun-dried Tomato & Garlic Couscous, excluding oil & butter, 100g pack

I think the values on the actual packet are misleading, the actual packet calories must be per 100g cooked, even though it doesn't say that. As according to MFP 100g dry cous cous (with nothing added) is about 356 calories per 100g which is way more than what the AH pack is saying per 100g. If you run the NV's through the calculator using cous cous as free you get ½ Syn per package on Extra Easy which is what the old values were.

The new SW online syns are for the whole packet rather than per 100g cooked like they used to be, which is the reason they have gone up (I mean c'mon, who weighs 100g of the packet out after its cooked? :confused: ) Its a lot easier to just know the syns for the entire packet. :)
