    Am i right in thinking that a Heb is equivalent to 6 syns? I have seen it on here somewhere, but my search is not providing me with the answer I am looking for.

    Can anyone tell me

    Thanks :D

    Pretty much, from what I can tell. I've seen a couple of things that are 5.5 - eg lemon hi-fis...

    ...and rhubarb as a HEB is something like half a syn, if I remember right.
    So in answer to your question...no, HE B's are not always 6 syns! ;)

    You can use 6 syns as a guideline though.

    227g of potato is 6 Syns.

    57g of potato (raw weight), flesh and skin is 1.5 Syns.

    So 227g potato (raw weight), flesh and skin = 6 Syns.

    I think you may have been looking at the Syn value for cooked weight. :)

    A HEb isn't a HEb based on how many syns it has it in, it is based on the fibre/protein/etc content. The syn value is only relevant if you are synning it, not using as a HEb.

    You cannot just have something that is worth 6 syns and call it a HEb. HEb must be from the updated list that you can find on the SW website.

    Sorry if what I have said is obvious but didn't want anyone to get the wrong end of the stick :)

    Thanks everyone for your replies, was trying to see if I had an extra heb for 3 pagen krisprolls it would be the same as 6 syns, I couldnt put my hands on my books so was a bit lost and confused. :D

    Was just playing around with my plan for the day.

    thanks again
