Snacking on the go on the Slimming World plan can be easy as long as you plan your snacks and know their syn content. Snack bars, in particular, can be great to pack since you know the syn content accurately, but what about Jordan's frusli granola bars? Are they high in syns?
Jordan's fruit granola bars have around 6 syns per bar, making these snack bars relatively high in syns, consuming nearly half of your 15 daily syn allowances on the plan; we, therefore, suggest only having them as an occasional treat.
Down below, we've put together a short guide taking you through why these granola bars are so high in syns, syn values of their whole range and some low syn alternatives for healthier snacking.
At 6 syns per bar, Jordans granola bars are high in syns, allowing you to have up to two before using all of your 15 syn daily allowances on the plan.
These granola bars get their high syn values from the sugar content; for example, the juicy red berries bar version has around 9g of added sugar inside.
Processed foods like granola and cereal often have lots of added sugar inside despite being advertised as healthy; we recommend always checking the nutritional info beforehand to be safe.
Jordan's has a wide range of granola bars on offer. To compare syns, we've listed their entire content below.
Now we know Jordan's granola bars are high in syns and sugar, and you're probably hunting for some lower-syn alternatives for snacking on the go.
