Hmmm strange, if I worked this out personally I get it to be 0.5points!
I was always told to round to the nearest 20 (i.e 20, 40, 60etc) so 43cals I would round down to 40cals and according to my points calculator if it contains 0.5g of Saturated Fat and 40cals then it is half a point. Was just wondering how we are getting different results???

But I am using the Points Calculator you get with your pack, not an online one so maybe that is where the difference comes from???

I eat Nairns berry oatcakes and my electronic points calculator said half each, so thats what I point them at. I would point yours at half also.

Everything which doesn't have points already worked out on the packet i use this online website to work out..

Weight WatchersÂ® Calculator

I tried to use a different website that someone posted a WW one and it came out as being more points for things than was meant to be! well weird, i don't trust the normal WW paper thing anymore, because of the fact you have to round things and what i work things out to be by using that, then using a calculator is very different!
