    I love tuna in sunflower oil. i usually have the plain brine one, but for 3.5 syns for half a tin, i dont think that it's bad.

    If its 6.5syns for 185g and your tin is 130g then the whole tin is just over 4.5 syns, and you're ony having half, so 2.5 syns would be more than enough to cover it.

    yes so depending on how many portions you divide it in to is how many syns you end up
    eg>>>>if a meal contains 8 syns in total and you were feeding 4 one portion would be 2 syns
    hope that helps

    If you even need ot figure out the sysn for something which is a different size all you need ot do is

    Divide the published weight by the syns (eg 185g / 6.5 syns) = 28.4
    Divide the weight of the item you are going to eat by the number you get from the previous sum (in this case 135g/28.4) = equals the number of syns in whatever you're eating.
