    I was trying to find the syns for gnocchi but couldn't find it on syns online so I put the nutritional information into the calculator. That came up with FREE on EE and Green and 39syns on Original (for the whole pack). Afterwards I managed to find them on the syns online list (I was spelling it wrong - opps!) and I came up with this...

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Gnocchi, potato dumplings, cooked without fat 100g cooked

    [​IMG] 1½ Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 7½ Syns [​IMG] Green 1½ Syns

    I know they're low syns anyway for a decent serving but would you go with what the calc says or the list? I know these few 'extra' syns here and there can really add up over time but it would be lovelly to have a bit of a change from pasta.

    I would go with the online syns rather than the calculator.

    Yes, but i'm not asking for the syns. I'm asking for opinions.

    Thanks anyway!

    I would go with the syn value - but allow yourself the full 15 syns that day :D

    That way you can stay on plan, without going over syns, just in case.

    The Syn forum is for ALL Syn Queries so your thread SHOULD be in the Syn forum

    :thread_moved: to where it should be
