If you're looking for some low-fat spread to put on your pies or top your pasta with, you might have heard of butter buds and wondered how many syn they have on the plan.
Butter buds have on average 0.5 syns for a sachet, making them a great low syn condiment to have on the plan thanks to their measured portion.
We've discussed in more detail below how many butter buds you can use on the SW plan and some low-syn alternative low-fat spreads to use in baking.
At 0.5 syns for a sachet, butter buds are great butter-tasting sprinkles to top foods with or to use as a substitute for regular baking if you want to cut back syns. You can use up to 30 sachets on the plan before using all your 15 syns!
Butter buds are still made from real butter but are produced in such a way as to make them low in fat, making them an excellent alternative to normal butter which is often very high in syns.
If you don't like the taste of butter buds or you're looking for some other low-fat spreads to use in baking or on toast, we've got some great low-syn alternatives for you to check out below.
To conclude, Butter Buds are low in syns, having just 0.5 syns for a 2g sachet, this makes them a great condiment to add to dishes for a buttery taste without the fat or to use in baking when mixed with water.
