Many people assume yoghurts are pretty healthy snacks to have on the slimming world plan, but when buying flavoured yoghurts, in particular, you have to be careful of the syns and fat inside of each yoghurt.
Muller fruit corners are a popular yoghurt snack and dessert which has five syns in per yoghurt for all their flavours, making them great to have as an occasional treat when you craving something sweet.
We have composed a short guide below which will discuss why Muller fruit corners are high in syns, the other syn values of the Muller yoghurts range and which kind of yoghurt it is syn free plus some lower syn alternatives to fruit corners.
Why Are Muller Fruit Corners High In Syns?
You might be a little shocked to learn that Muller fruit corners have 5 syns per yoghurt, this is for the red cherry, peach and apricot plus the blackberry and raspberry flavour.
They are high in syns due to the fact the yoghurt is made with full-fat milk which adds to calories, the fruit compote to mix in is also very high in sugar as it is concentrated jam-like fruit, all this makes the yoghurt high in syns, but would be the healthier choice over ice cream for example.
