Just as one sausage related discussion comes to an end, another has appeared – this time looking at Asda’s Extra Special Light and Lean Pork Sausages.
These new sausages include 75% pork and are 71 calories each and at the time of writing, come in a pack of 6 for £2.75. They are gluten free, and Asda have said they contain less than 3% fat.
The product has gained popularity as by placing the ingredients and nutritional values through the Slimming World Syn Calculator, they are appearing as a free product.
Prepared with tender lean British pork and lightly seasoned with a pinch of cracked black pepper. Made with 75% British prime pork (Asda marketing release)
However they are not yet showing on the Syn Database.
Currently, Slimming World have requested further information from Asda in relation to the product to determine its status within the Slimming World Syn Database, therefore as soon as the information has been provided and analysed independently, a Syn value will be confirmed.
Until then, consider a few minor syns per sausage to protect your weight loss – however once confirmed, we’ll update this message to confirm the true Syn value!
