Can I Have Chipolata Sausages On Slimming World? How Many Syns Do They Have?
Chipolata sausages are a great staple to have in the fridge for a quick meal, whether you add them to pasta for a quick dinner or an omelette for a high protein brekky, but how many syns do these sausages have on the SW plan?
Chipolata sausages have on average between 1.5-7 syns per chipolata depending on the meat they are made from and any other added ingredients. Chicken chipolatas tend to be the lowest in syns on the plan.
Down below, we've put together an unofficial slimming world syn guide which will take you through why chipolatas tend to be low in syns, some syn values and alternatives.
Why Are Chipolatas Low In Syns?
At just 1.5-7 syns per chipolata, these smaller sausages tend to be often lower in syns than traditional sausages. Chipolatas get their lower syn values due to their small and thin size which means fewer calories.
For example, Aldi pork chipolatas have around 7 syns each, making them higher in syns than chicken chipolatas due to their higher fat content from the meat.
How Many Syns Do Chicken Chipolatas Have?
Pork chipolatas are always much higher in syns than chicken options due to them having a higher fat content.
On average chicken chipolatas will have around 1-3 syns, making them very SW-friendly sausage options to add to meals.
For example, Heck chicken Italia chipolatas have 1.5 syns each, meaning you can have up to 10 sausages before using all your 15 daily syns.
Syn Values Of Chipolatas
Chipolatas have a wide range of syn values according to the type and brand you choose, so as you can compare syns, we've listed some below.
Asda Extra Special 12 Classic Pork Chipolata Sausages 375g - 7 syns for two.

To conclude, Chipolatas can be very low in syns thanks to their small and thin size, with chicken chipolatas being much more syn-friendly than pork chipolatas. On average they can be anything from 1.5 syns to 7.
