If you are the kind of person who loves maple syrup on everything, from pancakes to bacon, you are probably wondering if you can still enjoy your favourite sweetener on the slimming world plan or does it have too many syns?
Maple syrup has on average 2.5 syns a tablespoon, making it fairly low in syns, but should be consumed in moderation due to its high sugar and runny consistency which can make it easy to over-pour.
In our syn guide below we will take you through how much maple syrup you can have on the SW plan, syn values of this syrup and some low syn alternative sweeteners to stock up on.
At 2.5 syns for a tablespoon, you can have up to 6 tablespoons of maple syrup on the slimming world plan before using all of your 15 syn daily allowance on the plan, making it a great low syn natural sweetener choice.
We would suggest measuring out your portion of maple syrup to stay on track with syns and consuming the syrup mindfully since it is high in sugar and has nearly 10g of sugar in just a tablespoon.
Maple syrup has a similar syn value no matter the brand you choose, to help you stay on track with syns, we've listed some popular brands along with their syn values down below.
