In Tesco it's with the canned fruit and veg, near the tinned tomatoes. :)

Thanks for a quick reply!

I'm a bit confused though... I thought it was bad to buy things in jars..?

I think most tinned vegetables have syns, but tinned tomatos are syn free. You can use chopped tomatos instead of passata in most recipies. I prefer chopped tomatos as I find passata too sweet.

No this isn't the case. Veggies are free whether fresh, frozen or tinned.

no first comment is true.....if you are on the red plan the veggies have syns ...on the green/ee they would be free

canned mixed veg ,sweetcorn and garden peas are a few that have syns

Its nothing to do with them being tinned - theyre not free because theyre not vegetables, theyre pulses!

Peas, beans and sweetcorn are NEVER free on Red, whether tinned, frozen, fresh, raw or anything else.

Passata and pulses aside, how come you're starving? You definitely shouldn't be starving on SW.
