    I want to cook a creamy low/no syn curry tonight but forgot to buy yoghurt or fromage frais. I have creme fraiche in the fridge, can I use this instead? It is low fat version.

    you can use it instead, but it isn't free. You would have to syn it.

    Is it the low fat sort or full fat sort?

    no, creme fraiche whether it is low fat or full fat is still not syn free. But it will be lower in syns being low fat.

    it is 1.5 syns per level tablespoon for the low fat one or 3 syns per level tablespoon for full fat one.
