    Hi,
    I'm quite new to this.....can anyone help me work out the syn value of 'Co-op Polpette meatballs' (they are a mixture of beef, pork and herbs)
    Cant find anything in my book about meatballs on either day???

    Nutritional info per portion:
    Cal:295
    Fat:20.6g
    Sat Fat:8.6g
    Sugars:3.3g

    Im guessing that they are pretty high, but ive brought them now (They were reduced!!)

    Thanks, Lucie x

    On red and EE there will be a free food allowance for the pork or beef (whichever is the highest proportion ingredient so the one listed first on the packet).

    You have to remember that the 1 syn = 20 calories rule only works on food with NO FREE food allowance - so you cant apply it to everything.

    The only way to work it out is to use syns online (probably isnt on there if its new) or the syns calculator - and for that you need protein and carbs per 100g as well as fat - and the portion size. Also, confirm which is the greater value of free food (ie is pork or beef listed first)
