Are Singapore Noodles Slimming World Friendly? - Our Unofficial Slimming World Syn Guide
Singapore noodles make an easy and quick lunch, you can either buy them plain, adding your own ingredients, or buy the pre-made packet versions from the supermarket, but how many syns do these noodles have on the slimming world plan?
Singapore noodles typically have around 7.5 syns a pack depending on the brand, however, this can be considerably less if you choose the plain versions which are syn free or more syns depending on the ingredients added.
We've put together a syn guide below, discussing why Singapore noodles are so high in syns, syn values of different versions and some low syn packet noodle alternatives.
Why Are Singapore Noodles So High In Syns?
At around 7.5 syns on average for a serving, Singapore noodles can be very high in syns consuming over half of your 15 syn daily allowance on the plan.
Pre-made versions like Aldi Singapore noodles tend to be high in syns due to the added ingredients like oil, which increases the fat content.
That being said, Singapore noodles themselves are considered to be syn free on the slimming world plan like all other dried noodles as long as they are plain and don't have oil inside to keep the noodles separate.
Syn Values Of Singapore Noodles
Since Singapore noodles can have varying syns according to how they are prepared, we've listed some general syn values of them below to help you out.
Although bought plain, fresh Singapore noodles from the supermarket often contain oil and spice to keep them separate and ready to cook, if you find these noodles to be too high syns, check out our low syn alternatives below.
Pot Noodle Chicken And Mushroom 90G - 21.5 syns.

If you are craving some Singapore noodles for dinner, but don't want to spend too many syns, we've got a great low syn recipe below for a healthy meal.
Three garlic cloves.
Four spoons of curry powder.
200g of lean pork.
Two chicken breasts.
Three spoons of soy sauce.
Two spoons of rice wine vinegar.
Begin by chopping onions then add the garlic, chilli, ginger and curry powder in a processor to make one big paste.
Next, put this spice paste on to the meats and allow them to marinate for around five minutes.
Cook the meat on the wok at high heat for five minutes then cook the noodles.
With low cal spray, fry off the rest of your spice paste then add in the veggies and water and cook.
Combine everything in the pan, adding in the vinegar and soy sauce at the end.
To conclude, dried Singapore noodles and all noodles are syn free on the slimming world as long as they are plain, however, most supermarkets store fresh Singapore noodles in spices and oils which means they have syns.
Pre-made noodle packs are also very high in syns due to their added ingredients, to save syns, we recommend making your own at home.
