Horlicks has around 4.5 syns for a 25g serving making it a high syn drink choice which should be consumed in moderation, Horlicks light, on the other hand, has 6 syns for a 32g serving making it similar in syns.
We've discussed in further detail down below why Horlicks is so high in syns, some syn values of this hot drink and low syn alternatives to help warm you up!
At around 4-6 syns a serving, both Horlicks original and Horlicks light are quite high in syns, allowing you to have up to around three servings of this hot drink (excluding the milk) before using all of your 15 syn daily allowance on the plan.
Horlicks gets its high syn value from the malted wheat in the drink and sugar having nearly up to 19g of sugar in one serving. When paired with 200ml of semi-skimmed milk you are looking at using 9 syns for just one serving of this drink on the plan.

If you find Horlicks to be too high in syns and you are looking for a similar malted or chocolate drink alternative for your evenings, we've got some excellent low-syn alternatives for you to check out below.
To conclude, Horlicks is quite a high-syn drink, having between 4-6 syns a serving depending on the serving size and type of drink you choose. Once mixed with milk you can expect the malted drinks to be even higher in syns due to the sugar, having around 9 syns a serving.
In order to reduce syns, we suggest opting for the smaller serving size of 25g and using the milk as your healthy extra A in this drink or picking a hot drink from our low syn alternatives which start as low as 2 syns.
