    Hiya everyone

    this probably sounds like a really stupid question but see the 55g of wholemeal pitta for a HE now, is that a whole pitta or half or 3/4?! theres no weight on the ones from asda (well there probably is but ive more than likely looked right over it haha) so I have no idea how much pitta it is! :confused:
    Sorry for the blondeness haha xx

    I'm sure someone said that 55g was the whole pitta. Why not bung it on the scales to check?

    i bought some wholemeal pittas last week from Tescos and weighed every one on my scales. A majority of them weighed in at 55g with a couple of them 2-3g over but i just synned the difference. I don't think it matters where you buy them from as long as they are wholemeal and you have 55g as you heb and then syn the rest - please correct me if i am wrong.

    If it was 55g ANY pitta then it would say so in the book (like it says 57g any wholemeal bread, or 2 slices from any wholemeal 400g loaf).
    For some reason, unbeknown to us, it states Asda. Therefore, it is only Asda pitta which is a HEB choice.

    May be worth an email to SW?

    I know in the past pitta bread was never a HE B option because they contain oil, so maybe Asda is the only brand that doesn't contain oil? Just a thought....

    Think its because as lentil says it something to do with the oil / fat content. I have just compared Asda and Tesco pitta bread and the fat content is Tesco 1.5g fat per serving whereas Asda is 0.9g fat per serving
