    Tesco are in the middle of rebranding their meat-free range and their frozen soya mince now seems to be free because the recipe has changed and the values are similar to the dried soya mince - could someone please calculate it based on what I've taken off my new packet? TIA!!

    Ingredients: Rehydrated textured soya protein (98%), flavourings, salt, sugar, maltodextrin, white pepper, palm oil, malted barley extract

    100g contains:

    Kcal: 104
    Fat: 0.1g
    Carbs: 8.6
    Fibre: 4.3
    Protein: 14.9

    it is coming up as free on the syn calculator, although it is still listed as 1 syn per 100g on the syns online

    Tesco website still has the old packaging too with all the extra fat etc, no idea what happened to the recipe but it tastes just as good so will count it as free now! Thank you!

    Nicer, I used to use it over Quorn when I was veggie and it's vegan so use it all the time now, my partner who eats meat prefers it to Quorn too :)
