    I had some mini rosti's with my tea. They had 60 calories each, and are 83% potato. Does this mean that i dont need to syn the 83% of potato? And if each rosti has about 50 calories of potato, thats about 10 calories of 'syns' and i can syn them at 1/2 a syn each?? I am no mathamatition lol lol ( or any cop at spelling :D ) Thanks xx

    Ah sorry doesnt work like that - they may be 83% potato *by mass* but not necessarily by calories - eg any oil or whatever could easily outweigh calories from potato (but you might be lucky). Can you just give us the nutritional info (calories, protein, carbohydrate and fat per 100g or per portion, AND the portion size) and we can work it out. Or do you have the exact brand and product name?

    Protein 0.8g
    Carbs 7.8g (sugars 0.2)
    Fat 3g (saturates 0.3)
    Is that enough info? Thanks xx
