    It's from Waitrose. I've been looking for a super low fat version and this is the lowest I can find.

    Can't help with the syns but as it is 10% fat it would not count as extra lean. You could always get some lean lamb and ask the butcher to mince it for you.

    I've asked the butcher to do this in the past, and they have told me they only use it for beef and can't use it for anything else because of some risk or other. :-(

    You can't get extra lean lamb mince in the UK at the moment.

    Other lamb mince is as follows:

    Lamb, mince, less than 16% fat , 100g raw 2
    Lamb, mince, more than 16% fat , 100g raw 5


    SW press release:

    "Extra lean mince

    Recent research has shown that extra lean lamb, pork and turkey mince is no longer readily available in supermarkets.

    If you come across a Food Optimising recipe that uses one of these extra lean minces and you’re unable to get hold of it, we recommend that you ask your butcher to mince very lean meat for you (with no skin if it’s poultry) or you mince your own at home. This way you can guarantee it’s Free!

    Our database currently shows that there are no packs of extra lean lamb mince available in UK or Irish supermarkets and only the following turkey and pork mince:

    Tesco Healthy Living Pork Mince, chilled, 500g pack
    Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Free Range Turkey Mince, chilled, 500g pack

    Fortunately extra lean beef mince is still readily available in all the major retailers
