    Default Points for Non-stick Cooking Spray?

    Does anyone have calorie/point info for non-stick cooking spray? I use the butter flavor on toast (about a 1-2 second spray each side of toast) and sometimes spray my pan with it when I brown chicken but don't want to use oil.

    I know the nutrition info says it's 0 points, 0 fat, but the first ingredient is oil. It can't be 0 all the way through...right?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sufficiently large amounts count for Points.

    What's in it, mostly, is oil and propellants (ingredients to make it spray).

    You are supposed to use this stuff to coat pans for cooking and in that case the amount used is negligible. It enables you to get the job done with a tiny amount of oil.

    If you're going to put it on your toast, you may be using enough to count. 1 tsp. oil is 1 Point.

    It has probably been 20 years since I put butter or margarine on toast. I have it dry.

    Thanks for the response. I know it's not really supposed to be used for toast, but I like the hint of butter flavor, and it helps my toast get brown without getting hard in the middle. Ah well.

    I'll count it as a point from now on. Thanks!

    If you don't mind "waisting" some spray...try this...spray it into a tsp and count how long it takes to fill it up. I doubt that quickly spraying each side of toast is more then an 1/8th of a tsp...a tsp of oil to us on ww is actually quiet a bit...when I make my homemade popcorn I cant use more then 1/2 a tsp or else it just is kinda icky to me...

    Just adding my 2 cents...
