If you are ordering an Indian takeaway or want to pair your homemade curry with some Naan bread as a side, it's important to make sure you are synning your naan bread on the slimming world plan so you can stay on track with your syns.
Naan bread has varying syns according to flavour of the naan you buy and size, on average you can expect a whole naan to have around 13-15 syns, when halved this will be 6-8 syns a portion, making it high in syns.
We've discussed in more detail below why naans are high in syns, some syn values and our SW recipe for making your own syn-free naan at home!
At around half of your daily syn allowance for half a naan bread, this type of bread can quickly add up with the syns in your curry (check out our Indian takeaway syn list here) if you are not careful, but why is naan bread so high in syns?
Naan breads get their high syn value from the starchy carbs, extra ingredients in this bread like butter and other flavors can also add lots of calories.
This doesn't mean you can't enjoy the occasional naan on the SW plan, but we suggest opting for mini naans which will keep your portion size low, these have around 6.5 syns.
Naans will have varying syns according to the size and ingredients, so as you can compare syns we've listed some popular brands below along with their syns.
If you are craving some naan with your curry but don't want to spend a crazy amount of syns having one, why not make your own slimming world-friendly naan? This recipe only has 5 syns per naan too!
Overall, naan breads can be very high in syns, with some consuming your whole 15 daily syn allowance for the whole bread.
To save syns we recommend choosing mini naans which are smaller in size or making your own which are more syn friendly by switching out regular ingredients for options like syn free yoghurt.
