    I questioned this with my consultant and basically go by the 5 syns - the 2 syns are probably a different weight (there are some skinny LM sausages out there). Have you tried cauldron sausages - they are only one or two syns each and veggie.

    Try only to use the syn calculator when the product isn't listed on syns online. A you've found it can be difficult to use particularly where there are free food allowances to factor into the calculation.

    Just to revive this thread... I got some LM Red Onion and Rosemary sausages (frozen) after hearing they're syn free, but on reading the pkt it says they're 65 cals each? Surely this would mean they're synned?


    Here's the nutritional bit; per 100g

    energy - 128kcal
    Protein - 14.2g
    Carbs - 9.7g
    of which is
    sugars - 2.7g
    Fat - 3.7g
    Fibre - 5.8g
    Salt - 0.5g

    it says 'special edition' on the front which made me think 'uh oh'

    Hi SulisMinerva..

    They qualify for 'free food' value in the calculation. I'm not an expert but I think that the nutritional info plus the freed food allowance makes them syn free. Quorn sausages also qualify for free food allowance but their nutritional make up (possibly added oil?) means they have a syn value.

    I think that is how it works.
