    I *think* the first one works out as:
    ½ Syn per package/portion on Extra Easy
    ½ Syn per package/portion on Green
    8½ Syns per package/portion on Original

    Using the second set of values... A reccomended serving- so NOT per packet.

    And I *think* the second one was free... but the way you have posted the values may me feel a bit iffy about what I've calculated...

    I've worked it out the same as you for EE/Green provided you take the first piece of data for each value ie "per 100g cooked".

    0.5 syns per 100g cooked weight for the first one, Free for the second one.

    However on Red there's no free food so 1 syn per 20 calories - 5.5 syns per 100g cooked for 1, 6 syns for 2.
    Sent this through the calculator which confirms:

    5½ Syns per package/portion
