Most people assume that crisps and snacks, in general, have to be stopped to lose weight, but on the slimming world plan, you can eat whatever snack you want, including popchips as long as they fit within your syn allowance on the plan.
Sea salted flavour popchips in particular have 6.5 syns in for a 28g serving, making them quite high in syns, so should only be eaten in moderation on the slimming world plan.
Down below we've composed a short guide that will take you through why popchips are so high in syns, other syn values of popchips flavours and some lower syn alternatives to snack on when you get the afternoon munchies.
Popchips are high in syns depending on the serving of the bag you choose, you can find some 17g bags which will only set you back 3-4 syns, while larger servings can cost you up to 6 syns, which is nearly half of your daily syn allowance.
However, although popchips can be high in syns depending on the serving and flavour, they are the healthier option in comparison to standard crips, as they are popped rather than fried, cutting down the fat content of the chips.
You could have up to two servings of sea-salted popchips from the larger bag and still be within your syn allowance for the day.
Popchips syns vary according to the flavour and size that you buy, so to help you stay on track we have listed out the other syn values of their range down below.
Since popchips can be high in syns we have hunted down some other low syn popped style crisps to add to your basket when you need a low syn snack.
Overall, popchips can be high in syns and cost you nearly half of your daily syn allowance depending on the serving size of the bag and the flavour that you choose. They are however healthier than normal fried chips and lower in fat, so are a good snack choice to enjoy on the SW plan as long as you track their syns and eat them in moderation.
