    Yes, they must have "improved" the receipe which changes the Syn value, that why its always good to check things that are free. I ate these on Sundayas well and didnt count the syn value... DOH!!!! :(

    Update


    I realise this is an old thread but just in case anyone is looking for the same info I was on the Tesco Simply Cook! Lamb shanks in Mint Gravy. They are now syn free according to the March/April 2011 mag (Which is great 'cos they're so tasty!)
