The Syns Calculator uses a series of short questions to find out the nutrition information of the product you have in front of you.
To help you get used to the calculator, please see the 'Syns calculator tips'. This will also show you how to decipher the nutrition panel on the back of your food packaging.
If your food contains a Free Food it may be eligible for a 'Free Food allowance', eg Mullerlight yogurt contains fat free natural yogurt – a basic Free Food. Chicken in black bean sauce contains chicken – a basic Free Food on Extra Easy and Original. Check the 'Syns calculator tips' for a list of foods that don't get a Free Food allowance – these tend to be those foods that don't satisfy our appetite and are high in calories.
