How do i work out the points value of some of the mock meats i eat? (Oddly enough the WW book doesnt have a section on Vincents Vegetarian)

do the mock meats have nutritional info on the packaging? If so, then use the points calculator with energy and fats to work it out. If they don’t, ring the Consumer frecall 1800 line and they will fax you the details (I’ve done this with a number of food products, and all vendors have been happy to send me the details)
Tofu is one third the value of meat by the gram – 100gs of tofu is 1 pt. The mock meat from a packet can be pretty expensive – one vege sausage is like 4 pts and the soy cutlets are about 5pts per piece. To tell the truth I avoid them and eat lentils (1 cup is 3pts) and plain tofu instead.
