    Just been to Asda and bought some mug shots, in my cupboard is another noodle type hot snack like a mugshot that is Asda's own brand.

    When I used the syn calulator for this snack it said that it was 2 1/2 syns, but I have compared the carb, protein etc to the mug shot and it is lower on everything.

    Can anyone advise me if I am working out the syns wrong online.

    Did you remember to give it a free food allowance for the noodles? Also have you checked it's not listed before using the calculator?

    If it's listed as that then the value will be correct. If you used the calculator and the main ingredient is the noodle then it will qualify for a free food allowance and you need to include that in the calculation. This can bring the syn value down substantially.
