1 syn per 20 cals is not an exact calculation, however, I know a few people use that as a guideline.

You are better logging on to the SW website if you have access or just asking on here.

It *is* exact, if theres no free food in something (or if it doesnt qualify for free food, eg shop-bought soups/sauces, pastry items, junk food etc) - thats exactly how the snackulator calculates.

But if theres free food in it then you cant work it out without accessing the calculator so if youre not a member you'll have to ask someone on here to do it for you.

As long as you round it up and not down it is accurate to calculate 20 calories at 1 syn for non free food. Check it on line and you will see x
