Although most spoonable/granular sweeteners* are Syn-free, to make them granular, they do rely on a carrier which contains calories. For the odd teaspoon or sprinkle, the calories and the syns are truly negligible. However if you're using larger amounts to sweeten Fromage Frais, stewed fruit ect, it could be having an impact on your weightloss. So it is recommend that if you plan to use several tablespoons you count it as 1/2 Syn per tablespoon.
* this doesn't effect table/drop sweeteners.
