    I bought Puffed rice today as I though I could add some sweetner and it would be a bit like rice krispies BUT looked at the syn value online and it says 5.5 syns - which is the same as rice krispies which have tons of sugar.

    This can't be right.:wave_cry:

    When I used the manual calculator putting in rice as a free food it came out as free on EE and green which is what I expected.

    Has anyone had this before???

    Am confused :confused:

    Because it doesn't contain enough fibre to be a HEXB

    Rice krispies have other ingredients including a ton of sugar! Hence my confusion and my growing frustration :-(

    I agree, its crazy it should have the same syn value as sugar loaded rice crispies.

    It had never occurred to me that puffed rice, and maybe puffed wheat which contains nothing but wheat, could be free, they seem a little too processed. Like grating apple sort of thing, I suspect they'd be easier to eat lots of rather than in the original more dense and water filled original form.

    I too would be grateful for clarification from a consultant. The thought of a free food cereal sounds great ..... but then ... when I used ordinary cooked rice or cous cous with soya milk as a free cereal my losses would slow down considerably

    that has sugar and fat in it hence the 5.5 syns per 28g as most cereals

    They are part of the structure of the rice. Eggs have sugars, fats and proteins in them but they are free.

    My point (again) is that the ONLY ingredient is rice with no added sugar or fat - just rice?!?

    It's the rice one I got:

    http://www.rudehealth.com/our-food/gluten-free-cereals

    I can understand puffed wheat not being free as wheat isn't but rice is. I think I may give up and go to bed.

    Thanks again x
