Does Ainsley Harriet Couscous Have a Lot Of Syns?

Couscous always makes a quick and tasty meal and doesn’t require any preparation, the supermarket packets such as Ainsley Harriet are even more convenient as they have flavouring too, but this means you will also have to track their syns.

There is a huge range of couscous flavours from Ainsley Harriet, on average their syn values vary between 1-3 syns Per 100g so still make a great low syn addition to a meal if you are short on time.

Is Couscous Syn Free On Slimming World?

Most pre-packaged couscous like the ones from Ainsley Harriet has syns so it can be confusing to learn that normal couscous is syn free like rice. This is because the packaged couscous often has extra fat and oil already inside it from its flavourings which contributes to the extra syns.
