The Syns Calculator lets you enter the nutritional information from the packaging of any food/drink items that you have and by doing this you can get the Syn value for almost everything.
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.
If an item is already listed on Syns Online then we have done the hard work for you and the Syn value you see there will be up to date. From time to time, members use the Syns Calculator to check the value of items that are listed online and without the correct Free Food allowance, these items will show a much higher Syn value - if this is the case, double check the Free Food and as long as this is entered correctly, you should get the same value as Syns Online.
