Salad cream is a staple for many of us, but since normal salad cream is not technically a free food on the slimming world diet, you will need to calculate the salad cream syns according to the amount that you use on your food.
As it stands, salad cream has 2 1/2 syns per tbsp if you go for full-fat salad cream (this is based on Heinz), but if you do change then per cent fat salad cream then it will be fewer syn per tbsp.
We have made a small guide below that will cover the syn values in all salad creams, as well as a guide to syn free condiments and other types.
As we mentioned above, salad cream does have a fair amount of syns per tbsp if you are a salad cream queen and opt for the full-fat version, you will need to be careful about how much you use.
We have listed the other syn values for the lesser fat cream types down below.
As well as salad cream having syns, other popular condiments such as ketchup or mayonnaise also have syn values which need to be tracked.
Although most popular condiments do have syns on the slimming world diet, there is a huge range of condiments that are SYN FREE, so you can use these alternatives if you are trying to cut back on using all your syns on the sauce.
We have listed the syn free condiment choices below.
If you are a true lover of salad cream and love it on your sandwiches as well as your salad, finding a substitute is not easy.
So we've listed out some alternative options to try below.
Overall, it's best to try and avoid full-fat salad cream on the slimming world diet as it uses up a fair amount of your syns of just one tablespoon, instead, opt for less per cent fat salad creams, use syn free condiments from our list above or make your salad dressing which is lower in syns!
