    tesco bean and red pepper cous cous
    per 100g 235 kcal protein 6.3 carbs 32.5 fat 8.7 250g pot its not listed on syns online but there is a cous cous with roasted red pepper and its 6.5 syns for 225g so im thinking as the cous cous itself is free on a green day that 28.5 syns must be wrong

    Look at the fat content. There is little or no fat in couscous, beans or red peppers, so my guess is that there is oil in it.

    Check the ingredients list and see if it mentions oil. The nearer the beginning of the list, the higher the quantity of any ingredient.

    I had a look at this in Tesco today.

    The couscous has oil in it, and so does the dressing. That's why there are so many syns.
