As far as I know you can only use Extra Lean Mince. My OH picks up lean in the shop nearly everytime and gets shouted at to go and get the extra lean! Haha.

Someone else that's wiser with SW might say otherwise but I'm sure it's only extra lean.

Yep - only the extra lean stuff is syn free, the rest will have a small syn value. Some people choose to drain off any fat or even rinse it under boiling water to remove excess fat and then call it syn free but this is not SW approved

okay! thnks im gnna have to be naughty tho cos im not wasting all that mince! i do usually defrost it in the microwave before using so i might warm it up a bit longer too see if it gets rid of some of the fat : /

If you cook mince then cover with water to the level the meat is & leave it in the fridge the fat comes to the top & you can remove it - still wouldn't make it free though I don't think but its just a tip my aunt taught me years ago....
