    There isn't a syn calculator on the app but there is on the SW desktop site (under my weight loss tools > syn tools) and also on the mobile site as part of the food diary. I prefer to use the mobile site over the app as it has many more features. Just follow the link below and log in, then bookmark it on whichever device you are using for next time :)

    Hmm that doesn't sound right hun, did you choose the appropriate free food allowance from the drop down menu at the start? Which one would depend on what the main ingredient is, usually the one listed first :)

    Lol - ahh no I didn't ?

    I choose sweet corn , in the box , bit it's all different beans based on that its 7.5 syns

    Think is will take it into class !!

    Really fancied this sweet corn and still not eaten it
  9. I checked on the Tesco website and the ingredients are as follows:

    Sweet Corn (60%),Water ,Onions (5%) ,Black Beans (5%) ,Red Peppers (4%) ,Salt ,Lime Juice Concentrate ,Flavouring

    Now, as far as I can see, each of those ingredients on its own would be free on Extra Easy or Green (not on Red), and there are no extras like fats or oils or thickeners to add syns, so I think the whole thing would be free. I can't see where any syns would come from.
