    hi everyone,

    does anyone know the syn value of the spicey cous cous? On the SW website it says

    Ainsley Harriott Spice Sensation Couscous, excluding oil & butter, dried 100g cooked[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][​IMG] ½ Syn on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 6½ Syns [​IMG] Green ½ Syn [/FONT]
    [/FONT]
    but does that mean the entire 100g packet makes 1/2 syn when cooked or that once it is cooked each cooked 100g is 1/2 syn? I dont want to eat a packet, count it as half a syn and then find out it should be 3 or 4 syns! xxx

    Actualluy I think the general concensus is that it's cooked weight rather than the whole packet. But that said it doesn't make much difference as the packet comes out at about 250g if I remember rightly, making it about 1.5 syns.

    Hi Karen

    I take it as 100g dried cooked

    do you get where i am coming from, but it is confusing. I only count 1/2 syn for the whole packet.

    Sx

    Gosh I get the big AH Cous Cous from Costco and measure 100g dried in that black measuring cup and always count it as .5 syn. Hope I'm doing it right.
