    Oh no - poor you, I take it you just read portion size? Argh!

    Apparently it is 5.5pts per 100g dried couscous (I count it the same as pasta - 1pt per 20g). And Ainsley's will have flavouring/additives so I'm sorry but 5 pts does sound more accurate.

    Ah well - good job you noticed!

    I had this problem too!!! ITs not clear on the packet at all that a pack is 2 servings, took me ages to suss it out!!!!

    I point the ones I have had at 2.5 per half pack.
