I just weighed 4 slightly heaped tsp and it came to 20g. According to the Nutrition on the packet this is 80 calories so 4 syns.

OK I've edited this post as my maths in discombobulating this morning:

Basically 4 heaped tsp is 4 syns, irrespective of how much water you put it in. For some reason SW think it would be interesting to calculate a 142ml serving (which would only need 2 heaped tsp, so is 2 syns). The Bisto pack says put 4 heaped tsp in half a pint (280ml) which is 4 syns.

At the end of the day 4 heaped tsp is 4 syns however much water you actually put it into. About 1 syn per heaped tsp.

Its actually 1 LEVEL teaspoon = 1 syn. A heaped spoon can be double a level one or maybe even more cos there's no "top" on it so thats why spoon measurements are always levelled for accuracy.

I started using the original bisto gravy powder cos its only 0.5 syns per level tsp, thats half as much as granules.

I just made the Bisto Turkey Gravy Granules using 4 heaped tsp in half pint water (I like it thick ;-) )

How many syns should I count (obviously I will try not to put it all on my plate!), I couldn't find any reference to the Turkey flavour but hoping it is like the chicken 1/2 syn per level tsp?

This will be my only syns today so I'm not too worried

Thanks!
