Rice cakes are a great low syn snack to have on the slimming world plan providing you choose plan options, this allows you to top them with any flavour you want and keep them low in syns.
Tesco's rice cakes, in particular, have to vary syns according to the flavours that you buy, but for their plain lightly salted version you are looking at 1.5 syns a rice cake, making it a very SW friendly low syn snack.
Down below we will discuss why rice cakes are good for you on the slimming world diet, the other syn values of Tesco rice cakes and some low syn alternatives from other brands.
Why Are Tesco Rice Cakes So Low In Syns?
Rice cakes are low in syns as they are made only out of puffed rice which has a lot of volumes but not many calories (unless you buy a flavoured version), this makes them an excellent low syn alternative to crackers for example which are high in syns.
You could have up to 10 of Tesco's lightly salted rice cakes before hitting your daily syn allowance, topping them with syn free foods such as tuna, eggs or even fruit for a sweet craving.
