Pre-packaged Meals & Syns

Hi all

Just wondered if anyone knew how a ready meal - such as lamb shanks in red wine gravy (Aldi) - can be syn free but if we made it ourselves from scratch, we'd have to syn it (ie the red wine gravy)??

Same with things like Pasta n Sauce and stewed steak in gravy.

Not that it matters really, I just wondered.

Hmm good question. I spose when you make it from scratch you put loads of fresh ingreiants in that wont be syn free.. but they put loads of processed shiz in to keep them fresh-ish when frozen etc dont they.. ?? if that made any sence at all..

I think its because they use very small amounts of the syned ingredients and that if you made it at home you may keep on adding it to your plate but are more likely to stop at one portion if its packaged?
