Are Soba Noodles Slimming World Friendly? Do I Have To Syn Them?

If you're looking to make a noodle salad for dinner or maybe you need a quick and easy noodle meal for a weeknight dinner, you might be wondering if soba noodles are synned on the slimming world plan.

Are Soba Noodles Slimming World Friendly? Do I Have To Syn Them?

Soba noodles are syn free on the slimming world plan if you buy them plain and prepare them yourself, if you buy Nissin soba noodle pots or others which already have flavouring and added ingredients, you are looking at spending between 10-15 syns, making them very high in syns.

Down below in our syn guide, we will take you through why soba noodle pots can be so high in syns, some syn values, low syn alternatives plus an SW recipe for making your low syn dish with soba noodles!

Why Are Soba Noodles So High In Syns?

Soba noodle pots, such as Nissin soba noodles can be very high in syns, having between 10-15 syns for just one pot, which is nearly all of your 15 syn daily allowance. Soba noodles themselves plain are syn free on the SW plan.

These noodle pots get their high syns from the high oil content inside and added flavourings like sugar, for example, one pot of the Nissin Soba classic instant noodles has nearly 10g of fat inside.

Last Words

Overall, plain soba noodles on the slimming world plan are syn free, however, if you buy the prepared pots such as Nissin soba noodles from the shop then you are looking at using between 11-15 syns for one, making them very high in syns due to the added oil content inside.

To save syns we suggest making your own noodle dish at home which has less oil and sugar content.
