Turkey Breast Mince

I have always bought my turkey breast mince from Waitrose because it is very good quality.

I was surprised to see in the latest magazine that Sainsburys is the only brand which is free - even more surprised when I found that Sainsburys (according to their website) Extra Lean Turkey Breast Mince is 1.6g of fat per 100g, and Waitrose is 0.8g.

What about plugging it in to the syn calculator and double checking?


Is a crunchy mama!
SW are obviously mistaken then. If the Waitrose mince contains only turkey breast meat and is 0.8g fat per 100g then it's free.

I saw some turkey breast mince in Asda at the weekend that was 3% fat and would therefore also be syn free.
If you send it through the calculator though it comes out at :

½ Syn per package/portion on Extra Easy

That's from the nutrition data of 152kcal, 2.5g fat, 0g carbohydrate, 32g protein.
What do you do with it. I've no idea what meal ideas but it it always looks a good idea. I just dont know what to do with it.

Ideas anyone?


will hit target this time
i see. that's not too bad given that asda's turkey mince comes in a 340g pack (was looking at it yesterday) so that' still only 1.5-2 for the whole pack. negligable really once you've made a bolognese or something and divided it up.

might try it once i get bored of beef mince

I bought the turkey breast mince from Asda to make my favourite Shami kebabs from the SW curry heaven book, and for the minimal syns, won't be counting them!
