    I am trying to work out the syns using the calculator for the following

    Trader Joes Multigrain Pilaf

    It is basically a mixture of wholegrains, soyabeans and vegetables with herbs and spices in a microwave pouch.

    The ingredients are as follows:

    water, tomato, onion, pearl millet, cracket wheat, soybeans, millet, sunflower oil, garlic, salt, turmeric, chilies and spices.

    which item would you select as a free food?

    the pearl millet is about the same content as the soybeans looking at the packet, however there is no option for pearl millet (but it is a grain, not the same as pearl barley). Although I assume water, tomato and onion are in greater quantity.

    when I select soybeans as a free food, it comes up as free for the pouch, but I am not sure I trust this.

    Any suggestions?

    Is okay have sorted it, they did have millet under grains, no idea how I missed it the first time, so select millet and tomatoes and it comes up as 1.5 syns for half a pack, which I think it more trusting.
