If you're cooking up a Sunday roast and want to traditionally cook your roasties in some oil, you might be curious as to how many syns the extra oil can add to your meal on the slimming world plan.
Roast potatoes cooked in oil have between 5-10 syns for a 100g portion on the slimming world plan making them quite high in syns, this is due to the added fat from the oil.
Down below in our syn guide, we will take you through why roast potatoes are high in syns, some syn values and how to make your SW-friendly roasties to help you save syns.
At 5-10 syns for a 100g serving, roast potatoes can be very high in syns, this is because the oil adds a lot of extra fat to the potatoes. For example, roast potatoes cooked in sunflower oil can have up to 10 syns a serving and anything between 3-5g of fat depending on how much oil is used.
