    ok my favourite sweet is minstrels can anyone help me work out the points i am stuck as it says 503kcal but there is no mention off sat fats... it has fat/grasas (not sure what this is) then 22.3g do i add that with the 503 or does it mean there is none in it! in which case it being 0 this amounts are per 100g and it would be a 42g bag thanks in advance

    i am working it with 0 but want to check i am right in making it 3points??? i bet i am way off or 5.5 points with the fat of 22.3g ek and am soo cunfussled xx

    According to this:

    Calories per 100g: 497 Saturated Fat per 100g: 11.0g (which is got by googling)

    It works out at 10 points per 100g, so 1 pt per 10g, so 4pts for a 40g bag.

    Hope this helps, I love Minstrels too!

    ScottishJewel as a rule of thumb if there is no sat fat listed then just halve the amount of fat and use that figure x
    Hope you enjoyed them I love minstrels ;)

    normal 42g bag hun is 4.5 :)

    Mars Nutrition

    here you go, click on galaxy and minstrels are listed there :) useful site xx

    btw ww do say halve the fat to get sat fat if not listed but 9 times out of 10 the sat fat is actually more than half the fat value so it's best to go with 3/4 sat fat so if something is 10 go more towards 6/7 for sat fat etc to be on safe side xx
