    This subject has come up a couple of times recently (does the syn value of alcohol reduce when cooking with it as the alcohol is burned off?) so I wrote to SW to get the answer from the horses mouth.

    They have just replied as follows:

    "Sadly cooking with alcohol does not change the nutritional breakdown of it in any way; therefore the Syns will remain the same after this process."


    Unlucky!

    I think the alcohol evaporates but the 'sugars' remain. Bugger!

    I did a little research on this topic. The alcohol takes at least 3 hours to evaporate completely. However as less water is lost through slow cooking in a slow crock pot you will actually need less alcohol to add flavour x

    I never even though about it I always syn it at full value, what is .5- 1 syn per meal for yummy gravy and pasta sauce? I use half a glass (sometimes less) and split the meal 4 ways.

    My fave meal is quorn sasuages cooked in red wine gravy, with tons of mushrooms, caramalized onions, veg and tons of creamy mash Max 1 syn with .5 HEA
