Are Haribo Tangfastics Okay To Eat On Slimming World? - Our Syn Guide
We all need a sweet treat now and again, but on the slimming world, you need to make sure your sweets fit within your syn allowance in order for them not to affect your weight loss.
Haribo Tangfastics in particular have 4.5 syns for a 25g serving making them very high in syns, we would recommend weighing out your serving and consuming these sweets in moderation to avoid using too many syns.
In our guide below we will discuss why Haribo Tangfastics are high in syns, syn values of Haribo sweets and some low syn alternatives to help satisfy your sweet tooth.
Why Are Haribo Tangfastics So High Syns?
At 4.5 syns for 25g, Haribo tangfastics use a high amount of syns for small serving size, a 50g portion would use 9 syns which is over half of your daily syn allowance so it's important not to eat these sweets mindlessly.
The reason these Haribo sweets are so high in syns is due to their sugar content, having up to 13g of sugar for just a small handful of sweets, which is why we recommend eating them in moderation.
