    No they tend to be soya based and therefore usually have a syn value. I must admit that I get Asda own make meat-free mince because it tastes much nicer that the quorn mince and you get a big bag for £2. It works out at only 1.5 syns for 100g raw weight.

    And by the way Asda meatfree meatballs are just the best! In fact I think I'll have some for my tea - only 2 syns for the whole bag of about 28 meatballs.

    I don't like quorn mince so I always use asda meat free mince and meatballs, it's so much nicer and has a more meaty texture, definitely worth the syns. I tried tesco own make but wasn't impressed.
