    Hi all,
    Does anyone have a syn value for this? I was going to point it using the 20cal trick, but most of it is water so not sure how that works?

    The nutritional info per 100g is:

    65kcal
    protein - 0.7g
    carb - 11.1g
    fat - 1.8g
    sat fat - 0.2g

    It works out as 250 cals for the tin but 10-11 syns seems quite high as the ingredients are mostly free food?

    Thanks in advance x

    There is no free food allowance on ready made sauces so irrespective of the ingredients it will be 1 syn for every 20 calories

    I had 18 syns in my old book too (2004!) and I thought that must be wrong!

    OK, so thats slightly disappointing that it's 10-11 syns, but I didn't have any other syns that day so should be OK.

    I saw the ingredients and thought I was on too a winner! D'oh!

    Thanks for your help :)

    Oops, my maths is wrong. I make it 12.5 syns. Won't make that mistake again! I could have had a nicer sauce for that many points! LOL :)

    Thanks again for your help!
