    Howdy.

    I bought this thinking it would be quite low syn - these type quite often are! Anyway...just popped it in the syn calculator and the whole jar is 14 syns (green).

    What I'm wondering is, do I count any of the ingredients as free food? I'm on a green day and the sauce includes red and green peppers, black beans (obv!) water chestnuts, garlic etc. Or do I ignore that and go with 7 syns for the half jar???

    Cheers,
    Hellie x

    I would go with the whole syns, mate. The items that constitute free food are very low in calories so would barely make a difference to the overall syn value anyway

    I think better to be safe than sorry on this one
