Oh, I've just put the sausages through the calculator and they come out as 3 syns on all plans. Will go back and check in case I have mistyped anything? They appear to be 50g weight per sausage. Is that what you worked to?

Yes, just put them through again and it says 3 syns per sausage.

The kievs say 9 and a half on green and EE if using aduki beans as free food allowance, or 11 if not using any free food allowance.

I didn't use any free food allowance on the sausages ... If you put them through using 'vegetarian product' as the free food they come out as free!

Sorry, probably not much help!

I must admit - I didn't use the values given by the original poster - I used the nutitional values given on the Linda Mccartney website and the Cauldron website as the poster gave the values per sausage and per kiev not per 100g

You can only use the free food component if that is the first ingredient on the packaging.

I've got the kievs as 3½ Syns per kiev on Extra Easy & Green, 11 Syns per kiev on Original.

The sausages are free on all plans.

Hope that helps a bit - not sure what everyone else has been using, but I used the values you provided in the first post, and the weights that were provided later (50g for a sausage and 110g for one kiev).

please correct me if I am doing something wrong, but no matter if I use the values from the website (per 100g, so I ticked per 100g at the top of the syn calculator) or I use the values given above (and tick per serving on the syn calculator). I come up with the same value.
I have ticked free food as the quorn has vegi product as it's highest ingredient and Cauldron had aduki beans as highest ingredient.

arrrrrrrrrggghhhh!! just realised what I've been doing - I didn't put any red day food allowance in.... you can still use veggi food as a free allowance...... agree with he rest of you now!! :eek:

unfortunatly you have to be a slimming world memeber to get the online calculator (either a club member or online member). Both of which are quite expensive, but if you post your queries on here someone will normally get back to you fairly quickly (Hopefully others can be more helpful than me!!)

Soo... this thread confuses me!! How many syns did you guys work them out to be? 3.5 per kiev and free sausages? I thought there wasn't any free sausages anymore?

I think that's right, yes. The red onion sausages are new so not online in the directory - the syn calculator isn't 100% accurate, but it does the best it can. At the moment they appear to be free but may change when the item appears in the main directory.
