    I've always thought that all tinned fruit had a syn value but a friend has told me that tinned grapefruit in juice is free! :confused:

    Is this true? Are there any other tinned fruits that are free or very low syns?

    All canned fruit, in juice or syrup, has a syn value.

    Fresh and frozen fruit, if I'm correct, is free. Tinned has a syn value

    and watch out for fruit in pots/jelly - they are prepared/processed and can have syns in them too!!!

    Fresh fruit in a pot - such as a Melon Medley is free, but fruit in a pot in jelly - probably NOT free!!! xxx
