    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew how to work this one out.

    I'm not sure if these contain any free foods or such and they are the make your self ones (just add water) but the ingredient values listed are when they are fried. I didn't fry mine but used one of those silicone sheets instead (so no fat added)

    the main ingredients are breadcrumbs and chick pea flour

    per 100g

    267kcal
    6.4g protein
    30.8g carbs
    12.5g fat
    2.6g fibre

    In the instructions it says to cook in 1-2 tablespoons of oil. which will be included in the above values :confused:

    I've done the same I had the whole pack with a salad (yum) thinking it would be free or a couple of syns - I cooked them in fry lite and nearly choked when the online syn calculator had them at 15 syns - then when I read the fine print it was the syns for the fried value - I have absolutely no idea what the none fried numbers would be argghhh. According to the calculator though Asda pre made falafel (frozen) are only 1 syn each so assuming they use the same mix to make them then mine would have been about 6 syns which whilst still not brilliant is allot more manageable as it leaves me enough syns for a high fi bar later :)
