    right i brought a low fat natural yogurt today from lidl, wasnt sure if it was syns or not realy, so thought i'd use the online calculator to be sure, anyway it said it was 1 syn per 100g which isnt much but not worth useing a syn for lol. anyway i calculated it again, but did it per portion (500g) and it was free, so which one is telling the truth?? could someone check for me lol or verify this lol thx!

    cals -62
    protein - 5.1
    fat - 1.5
    carbs - 6.2
    size - 500g

    Oooh, no I didn't... hang on, I'll try again!

    If I do it that way it comes up as 5 syns per 500g, which fits in with what you said.

    Low fat natural yogurt is half a Syn per 100g. Only use the calculator as a last resort as it cant take all the compositions and quantities of free food into account, it is only a rough calculation. Use the brand search then the basic foods search first
