    I searched and found this:

    "The lean mince is syned but it's only 1/2 a syn per 28g raw weight, so you are probably still within your syn allowance. Hope this helps."

    but it was from a while ago - can anybody tell me if this is correct?

    Yes its still right. It needs to be "EXTRA LEAN" to be syn free...

    Thank you - I couldn't get any extra lean - I'm quite relieved that's all it is, should easily be able to save enough syns.

    My class leader told me if a dry fry the normal mince then scold it with hot water through a colinder to get rid of the fat that this will count at syn free.

    I get tesco healthy options lean mince as they don't do extra lean and I drain off any fat. I have never synned for this as to me it is free. If I don't lose weight one week I will syn, but so far it hasn't affected me.

    I would have thought that doing that would get rid of most of the taste as well!

    I buy steak mince, as I do most of the family shopping in Aldi and don't see the point in getting something special just for me, or having to shop elsewhere. I have always dry fried and then put mince in colander and poured boiling water over it, I also clean out the frying pan and then cook the mince a bit longer, season it, so it browns it up a bit more.

    The tesco here doesn't do that one as I used to buy that back in Scotland...we only have the tesco lean mince here....wish they would show some parity the wee raspers! (my other swear wasn't allowed) :)

    Have you tried asking them to stock it and telling them that SW members would buy it if they did?

    I could certainly try, only issue may be that slimming world hasn't really taken off here...had to join online as they have no classes near me. But I can only ask, what's the worst that could happen.... :)

    Sorry - hadn't noticed that you weren't in the UK! But still, it costs nothing to ask.
