Oooh, great - thank you!

Are they fresh rather than frozen then? I've looked in Asda and Tesco (frozen) and can't find one less than 5%.

I never find any frozen ones! They are usually just lean and not under the 5% rule!

They ae in the fresh isle and some times asda sell out cos its popular! Tescos are doing 2 packs for a fiver at mo tho

Asda works out at 3.5% per 100g and Tesco 4.3% per 100g (might not be exact, just remembering from what i wrote on the freezer bags! lol). Its the extra lean stuff. Asda do it2 for £5. As there is only 2 of us in our house, i divide each pack in 2 and freeze it. I too make burgers. DH has cheap pre-made ones and i save these ones for me! lol

ETA - just looked on Asda online, They advertise it as being 3% when pan fried. Dont know if that includes oil or not. Am going to write to Asda because i think their foods should advertise what the nutrition is raw, not when cooked how they suggest,

Yeah! I have just written them a stroppy message. It just doenst make sense. those mushrooms went from 0.3g fat per 100g to 16.2g when cooked how they said. But i had to find out the raw nutritional facts online. Which is wrong. I told them that i wouldn't expect to find the nutritional facts of a chocolate biscuit with a cup of tea! lol. I bet they have a laugh about it in the morning. lol I'll let you know their reply. lol xxx
