Hi guys does anybody know the syn value of chicken chow mein from Chinese take out x
The syns for this have changed recently. An average portion of 380g is working out at 16.5 syns EE and Green and 18 Syns for Red
Thank you Hun, if imagine that's prob just more than half of the take away portion would you? Mind you I do find it very filling and would have it in it's own xx
I guess it depends on the containers they use. I order a syn free chow mein from my local takeaway, I'm vegetarian and follow the green plan. So instead of using oil they use extra soy sauce so it's syn free love chow mein
Oh that's a good idea I'll ask mine if they'll do that x
Same here. Ask for it dry fried. Also check how they cook the chicken - mine stir fry it so the syns are definitely not what SW quote. I still allow 7 for mine although it's probably lower.
Oh and I've weighed it - that's for a whole small portion
