Does Graze Protein Bites Really Have A Lot Of Syns?

Protein bites are a great way to have a snack on the Slimming World plan; they are high in protein and low in calories, making them a great snack to have between meals.

The protein bites from Graze are a favourite of many slimming world-ers, they are great for adding a boost of protein to your diet, but unfortunately, they also contain a lot of syns!

Each protein bite contains 30 grams of protein. This means that each bite will give you around 50% of your daily recommended intake of protein. That's enough protein to help keep you feeling full for longer than if you were eating something else.

Graze protein bite contains 6.5 syns, meaning that it won't put too much strain on your budget.

Why Are Graze Protein Bites High In Syns?

We all love a snack now and again, but some snacks can be high in syns and therefore very difficult to fit into a daily Slimming World diet.

One such snack is Graze protein bites; these are a great snack choice. However, they are high in syns because they are made from protein powder which is usually high in protein.

Each bite-sized snack has a syn value of 6.5 per bite (30g).

How Many Syns Are In A Protein Bite?

A protein bite contains 30 grams or 0.8 ounces of protein. This means that one protein bite provides half of your daily recommended amount of protein.

If you eat two protein bites per day, you will get about 1 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight.

If you weigh 100kg, you should aim to eat 2 protein bites per day.

This equates to roughly 4 protein bites per day, so you could eat up to eight protein bites per day without going over the top.

This means that if you aim to lose weight, you need to make sure that you don't go overboard with your protein bites. If you do, you may find yourself gaining weight rather than losing it.
