Looking in the food directory today under sainsbury's i saw it said beef in gravy 210g - free. But the ingredients are....... gravy: water, cornflour, beef extract, beef, sugar, wheat flour, tomato puree, salt and malt extract. How can this be free?!?!?!?!?!?!?

kind of. You get a packed of beef slices an gravy and you boil the bag for 20mins to cook.

The beef in gravy packs are handy, but the portions are small so if you fill the rest of your plate with veg its actually a low calorie meal. You don't get a lot of gravy and most of it is probably water.

It's the cals divided by 20 ie if something is 100 cals it is roughly 5 syns.

But you would'nt syn mullers as they are free :) lol.
I have road tested a few things though and compared to the food directory and it does work well.

It does work well for synning something when you dont have your book on you, all im saying is make sure you double check as if you were a newbie and didnt know that mullers were free you'd think you were having syns which you arent
