Porridge is a healthy breakfast to have, but not all of us have time in the morning to cook it, so ready porridge made on the go is a more convenient choice.
Quakers are a popular choice of ready-made porridge to go for, but their packs do have syn values which have to be counted. The Quaker oats golden syrup pack has 6.5 syns for a 36g sachet, making it pretty high in syns.
In our article below, we will cover all of Quaker's oats types and their syns below as well as how to use porridge as your Healthy Extra B and some lower syn ready-made porridge alternatives to Quaker.
Let's get into it!
Are Quaker Oats High In Syns?
Quaker's ready-made oat packets are pretty high in syns due to the sugar and flavouring inside of them, most of the options are not under 5 syns so take up a fair amount of your daily syn allowance.
For example, as we mentioned above their golden syrup pack has 6.5 syns while the bigger 50g version with the same flavour will set you back 9.5 syns in total.
We will list all the different types of Quaker oats and their syn values below.
Bio&Me Porridge Apple & Cinnamon Gut-Loving Prebiotic 400g - 10 syns per 50g.
The Great British Porridge Co Blueberry & Banana Instant Porridge 55g serving - 11.5 syns.
To conclude, Quakers Oats So Simple Golden Syrup porridge has 6.5 syns for its small packet and 9.5 syns for the large packet, making it quite high in syns.
We would recommend opting for a lower syn alternative or making your porridge at home with your healthy extra B to save on syns.
