:sigh:
has anybody checked the syn value of powdered skimmed milk, it is loaded with calories but in 100 grams there is only 0,8g fat! that's less than 1% and all virtually fat free diary is free...

Skimmed milk has to be between 0.1 - 0.3 % fat to count as skimmed and even then you can only have 350ml - it's never free. Of course the powdered stuff will be full of calories when it's dried, but by the time you add all the water needed it'll be loads less!

I just calculated the syns from the nutrition on this one:

You use 57g per pint (568ml) which works out at 10.5 syns per pint = 1.85 syns per 100ml = 6.5 syns per 350ml (i.e. 1HEXA)

Normal skimmed milk works out as 2 syns per 100ml = 6 syns per 350ml (i.e. 1 HEXA)

So there is pretty much zero difference once you add the water. Powdered milk is just the normal stuff dehydrated. As long as they dont add anything else you're fine.
