    You can use soya products but they need to be defatted in order to be syn free. Quorn is just a readily available (at least here) meat free product but you don't have to use it. Lots of people never use quorn - it's all about choice.

    you can enter any product in the syns calculator, selecting your free food and it will give you the syn value if any.

    Of course you need to have a subscription to SW to access it. If it is just a once in a while lookup though, you can post the nutritional value on here and I am sure a member will check for you.

    yes you can,

    you select your free food (for instance chicken), enter the weight and nutritional information as required and it will tell you the syns if any.
