    how many syns in 7ml or 14ml vegetable oil please?

    Following on the thread for Tefal's Actifry, if not using fry light or extra virgin olive oil as a HEXB, I'm curious as to what the syn value would be.

    Approx of course as most oils will have differing values.

    Thanks.

    All types of oil are 2 syns for a level teaspoon and 6 syns for a level tablespoon.

    (It says "level" in the food optimising book - page 47 - but I am not quite sure why. A heaped spoonful of oil would be quite an achievement!)

    Do you have/know the equivalent in ml for the various spoon measures?

    Especially as the Actifry needs 14ml for 1kg of chips and reduced amount for lesser amounts - presumably a sliding scale. I'm fairly sure 14ml is considerably more than 2 syns lol.

    Edit: assuming 5ml for a tsp and 3 tsp = 1tbsp the 14ml would equal 1tbsp.

    Can anyone confirm or refute this please?

    Thanks for that - I'd hate to completely mis-calculate syns. I can also eat 250g of chips and give away the other 750g thus only having to count 1.5 syns.

    1 teaspoon is 5 ml, 1 tablespoon is 14 or 15 ml, depending on which website (or set of spoons) you look at.

    The syn value would just be for the oil.
