    Hi everyone. I took the egg mayo to class last night to tell everyone it was syn free and my consultant has just contacted me to say it was an error and it's actually 1 syn per tablespoon. The website's been amended now. Didn't know if anyone was eating it regularly or not.

    Crikey, it's taken them a long time to notice! I used to eat a fair bit of this when it was "free". Definitely won't be now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Oh no!! I just bought some at lunchtime! LOL! Good job I've not started eating it yet. I have had two tubs over the past couple of weeks, so not excessive amounts...but 1 syn per tbsp is quite a lot!

    thanks for this...you've saved me quite a few syns as I was just about to have half the tub.

    *confused*

    I have the tub in front of me. I've just entered all the values into the syn calculator, for green day (which is what I'm on) with eggs as the free food allowance.

    Comes up free for the whole tub.

    Now, I'm not sure why this is. I'm guessing it's because it's easy to eat the whole lot, which is likely to up your calorie intake. In which case, it's probably wise to allow a few syns for it.

    The stats are this:

    100g: Energy 498kJ, 119kcal; Protein 10.9, Carbs 3.1, Fat 7. Tub size is 250g.

    I was surprised it was free initially and looking at the ingredients, it does contain stuff we should syn normally (reduced fat mayo includes single cream, yogurt, cornflour, dijon mustard, oil...)

    Perhaps it's just a glitch in the calculator.

    The calculator can't factor everything in, it is only basic and to be used as a very last resort. The only true Syn values come from the comprehensive analysis by SW

    Don't forget though that Hellmann's extra light mayo is 1/2 syn per tablespoon -

    so you could make 2 or 3 boiled eggs, 2 tbsp mayo, salt, pepper, spring onions/chives (etc), chopped bacon (on a red day) and have the whole lot for 1 syn.

    I bought this after seeing the thread here and I really like it, but I was counting 1 syn per tablespoon anyway, just in case! :D

    It's handy for sandwiches to take into work, so I think I'll just keep getting it. I tend to use my syns on normal food anyway, rather than treats.

    Awww, I'm disappointed, I've been using it! It was so handy, I might still use it and syn it tho making your own would be better and cheaper!!

    Thank goodness I read this, I bought the wrong one the other day, not the Bee Good one, so gave it away and was going to buy the correct one tomorrow. These mistakes can bugger your plan up big time. Thanks for the info.

    Still- I have been eating lots of it and losing fine, so am not going to suddenly stop as the recipe hasn't actually changed. Better to be informed though I suppose
