Last Words

Overall, Panettone is a very high-syn festive bread, having around 14 syns for 75g, this is nearly your whole 15 syn daily allowance in just one small serving. This bread gets its high syn value from all the butter and sugar, as well as the rich dried fruits.

To keep syns low, we recommend having a very small portion of Panettone or switching to another festive bread like stollen which is slightly lower in syns.
