Is Caesar Dressing High In Syns? - Our Guide!

Salads are often classed as a healthy dish to have in the slimming world, but when it comes to dressings you have to be careful about the types of dressings your use, some can be very high in fat and calories, adding syns without you knowing.

Is Caesar Dressing High In Syns?

Caesar dressing in particular has 2.5 syns - 3 syns for 15ml, making it high in syns, therefore we would recommend measuring the amount of dressing you are using to stay on track with your syns and avoid using too many.

We've put together a short guide below which will cover why Caesar dressing is high in syns, some syn values of different Caesar dressings and low syn alternative salad dressings, we've also included an SW recipe for Caesar dressing.

Why Is Caesar Dressing High In Syns?

Caesar dressing has between 2.5 syns - 3 syns for 15ml, this means you could have up to 75ml of Caesar dressing before using all of your daily syn allowances. Caesar dressing gets its high syns from the fat and sodium in the ingredients, made with lots of oil and egg yolk.

It's important to use Caesar dressing in moderation due to its high syns, therefore we would suggest measuring the dressing out rather than just pouring it on salads. Alternatively, you could switch to light Caesar dressing which has reduced fat, costing you only around 1 syn for 15ml.
