Morrisons Tuna Tasters

Hi All

I have a query. I found Tuna Taster Sachets in Morrisons which are basically herb packets to add to tuna ie Red Pepper & Tomato Vinaigrette, Soy & Ginger, Lemon & Cracked Black pepper.

These are really nice but cannot locate the syn value on the SW website and using the calculator they are 1.5syns but I would have throught free as just basically herbs & spices.

I am quite new to this and maybe there is something else in the packaging that gives it a syn value.

Thanks for helping :)

As long as you added the free food allowance at the start that will be the syns. Vinaigrette could the reason for syns in the tomato one. Can you list the ingredients?

I would say it will be 1 syn per 20 calories as its al;l dried stuff and quite a lot of calroies from the sugar, so the first one is 213/20 X 0.1 = 1.065 = 1 syn for a 10g portion, the second 274/20 x 0.1 = 1.37 so 1.5 syns for a 10g portion. Whether you think that worth synning is up to you.
