Yoghurt is a great high-protein snack on the go or as a quick breakfast topped with some fruits and granola, but is Isey Skyr yoghurt in particular syn-friendly on the Slimming World plan?
Isey Skyr yoghurt has three syns per serving, making it an excellent high-protein, low-fat yoghurt on the plan; you could have up to five before using all of your 15 syn daily allowances.
In our syn guide below, we will take you through why Isey Skyr yoghurts have syns, some syn values of their whole range and low-syn Skyr yoghurt alternatives for satisfying snacks.
At 3 syns a serving, Isey Skyr yoghurts are syn-friendly, allowing you to have around five on the plan before using all your allowance.
The syns in these Skyr yoghurts come from the flavours in the yoghurts, which often contain added sugar; for example, the vanilla bean flavour has around 6 syns for the whole pot and 11g of sugar due to the flavours.
This being said, you could find low-sugar versions of these yoghurts and syn-free options such as their plain fat-free versions; add your fruits and honey to have more control over the syn content of your yoghurts.
Since the syns in Isey skyr yoghurts can vary according to the flavour you choose, we've rounded up their whole range below, along with their syn values so that you can keep on track.
Most of these are based on a 100g serving.
If you find Isey Skyr yoghurts too high in syns and sugar, there are plenty of low-syn alternatives for high-protein snacking.
Overall, Isey skyr yoghurts have around 3.5 syns on average per yoghurt, but you can also find options as low as 2.5 syns to 5 syns. Syns in these yoghurts depend on the flavouring and sugar added; for syn-free alternatives, we recommend picking plain zero-fat yoghurts.
We have a great syn guide to syn-free yoghurt options here; this way, you can add syn-free fruit for flavouring instead of opting for high-sugar processed yoghurts.
