All-Bran cereal has around 7 syns a serving for a Kellogg's original version, but this is classed as healthy extra B on slimming world too, allowing you to have your 40g syn free on the plan, making it a great choice for a healthy breakfast.

At 7 syns a serving, it would use up around half of your daily syn allowance which is high in syns unless used as your healthy extra B allowance, if you go over the 40g allowance however you will need to start synning it.
