    The only time its supposed to be synned is if its used in a recipe it wouldnt normally be used in, like a cake, grinding it up to make flour or something.

    I always do the syn free KFC with a cous-cous coating and never syn it.

    Yeah it would be free. You would only need to syn it if you were using it in for example a cake instead of flour as SW term that food abuse (because you are using a free food in a way you wouldn't normally)

    TBH with you though, how much breadcrumbs would you really use if you made them with that? I can't imagine it would be more than a couple of syns worth.
