Are Daim Bars Slimming World Friendly? - Our Syn Guide
One of the best advantages to the slimming world plan is that you can eat a chocolate bar and enjoy it while still losing weight as long as the chocolate fits within your syns.
Daim bars in particular have 7.5 syns per one, making them quite high in syns and using half of your daily syn allowance, we would therefore suggest eating them in moderation.
In our guide below, we will take you through why Daim bars are so high in syns, syn values of Daim products as well as some low syn alternative chocolates for when you get a chocolate craving.
Why Are Daim Bars So High In Syns?
At 7.5 syns for one bar, two Daim chocolate bars could cost you your whole daily syn allowance if you are not careful.
Daim bars get their high syn value from their fat and sugar content, having up to 9g of fat per bar and nearly 17g of sugar which is over half the recommended intake for a standard person's nutritional diet.
