I bought a vegetable bake from Tesco which is cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, potatoes and spinach with a cheese sauce and breadcrumbs. I thought it would be good seeing as it was mostly speed food but when I ran it through the calculator it was 17.5 syns!! Is that right? Some of it should be free surely? Or could I use some of the cheese sauce as a HEX B?

I checked the app and it's 16.5 syns. It does sound high to me too, but essentially half of it is the sauce which has a lot of high syn ingredients.

You could maybe offset some of it as your B, but I know that's not recommended in ready meal type foods as there's no way of determining how much of it is actually there.
