    At this time of year I love iced tea. Usually I make it with tea bags and lemon juice. I know that there are syns in the lemon juice so not keen on using up my syns on this so does anyone know if I was to buy lemon tea bags would that be Syn free?
  2. Tea bags are free, unless they contain sugar, so read the label. But lemon juice is free anyway.

    Thanks for the reply. I will double check with my consultant on Thursday about the lemon juice, we've always been told that juice from fruits have syns even though the fruit itself doesn't, something to do with the fact you would only eat say one orange but it would take 5 oranges to make a glass of orange juice therefore you are changing the fruit and eating more of it.

    The juices of most fruits have to be synned, for the reasons you mention, but not lemon juice (probably because people are highly unlikely to drink a whole glass of it!).
  5. Lime juice is also free.

    Thanks for the replies ladies, understandable why they are not syned when you think about the amount used
