I am sure a full tray is 300g in weight.....and its 7.5CPs, or 75g of Carbohydrate........

This information is in the DAFNE carb counting database you find on the right hand side of the website....

Thank you! It's in the takeaway section.

Hi Whiskymum
Just as a word of caution, not all trays are in fact 300g, so I would not assume its 7.5 without doing the maths at least once for the weight you intend to eat. e.g 180/300 x7.5
I am sure this had occurred to you already but I just know when I get my 'tray' from the chinese, its much more than 300g.
It may not be a huge difference in CPs but if you are sensitive like me it might mean the difference between being in range later and dropping suddenly at your next B.G Cool
