Is A Tin Of Heinz Ravioli Slimming World Friendly? - Our Syn Guide!
If you are after a quick and easy dinner, you might be tempted to crack open a can of Heinz Ravioli, but since this pasta is not syn free on the slimming world, you need to make sure you are counting the syns in this meal.
A tin of Heinz Ravioli has 15 syns per can, making this pasta very high in syns and consuming the whole of your daily syn allowance, we would therefore only suggest having this pasta as the occasional treat on the plan.
Down below in our syn guide, we will take you through why Heinz Ravioli is high in syns, some syn values of Heinz meals and low syn alternative ravioli options from other brands.
Why Is Heinz Ravioli So High In Syns?
At 15 syns for the whole can, Heinz Ravioli is a very high syn meal, taking your whole 15 syn daily allowance or half for a 200g portion.
Heinz Ravioli gets its high syn value simply from the pasta and sauce, however, nutrition-wise the pasta is very healthy, and low in fat and sugar, we would watch out for the sodium content which has around 3g for a full can portion.
To save syns we suggest sticking to a half portion serving of Heinz Ravioli which will only have 7.5 syns, you can bulk up the meal with some slimming world speed veggies.
