The beans are prett much all the same when it comes to points - usually 2.5 per half tin. I would really reccomend you getting your own calculator as it really doeas make a huge differnce to adding your points up and working out food value - there worth every penny! x

You can work points out for yourself if you are reasonably good at maths. You divide the calories by 60 and the saturated fat by 4 (if it doesn't say how much the sat fat is, then assume it's half the total fat) then add those two together. Round up or down to the nearest half point.

So, if something was 140 calories and 4g of sat fat it would be three points. (140/70=2) + (4/4=1) = 2+1 = 3 .

Honestly though you really need to invest in a points calculator, its the one essential for doing WW, unless youre a maths whizz and can work that out as you go round Tesco lol

I find heinz beans are barely different in terms of points so I just buy them. I have a points tracker...not a calculator but it does the same thing and i could not be without it.

heinz beans and branston are actually higher in points than supermarket own brands.. all sainsburys / asda beans are 5 points per tin, heinz are 6, and branston are 6.5 :p
