    Hi

    New here, so apologies if this has been asked and answered before. Does stewed fruit have syn value? If so, why? :confused:
    After all, fruit is free and so are sweeteners. :eek:

    Thanks in advance

    xx

    Only fruit in it's raw form is FREE.

    Tinned, Stewed/Cooked or Blended fruit has syns and doesnt qualify for a free food allowance. Same goes for fruit juice.

    Just think of how long it takes to eat an apple. Then imagine that same apple cooked, the quantity becomes a lot less and is also less filling. The same applies to blended fruit in a smoothie for instance, it would take you quite a while to eat all the fruit in it's raw form that is contained in a smoothie and it would be far more filling, however all that fruit would be gone in a couple of gulps in it's blended form and your body probably wouldnt even recognise you had consumed it.

    Tinned fruit etc is either preserved in fruit juice/or syrup both of which are not free. So again have syns.

    It's worth checking the HEX list too, as some stewed/tinned/baked fruit counts as a HEXB, so you don't have to syn it :D
