If you love sourdough and Avacado toast for breakfast or maybe with some fresh jam, you might be wondering how many syns your usual toast has in the morning and if it is slimming world friendly.
Sourdough bread has on average 5 syns for a 40g slice and 9 syns for an 80g slice making it high in syns, we would therefore suggest only having this bread occasionally on the plan.
In our syn guide below, we will take you through how many slices of sourdough you can have on the slimming world, syn values and some low syn alternatives for your breakfast.
If you're picking a smaller slice of sourdough weighing around 40g you could have on average up to three slices of sourdough before using all of your 15 syn daily allowance. For a larger slice weighing 80g, this would be two slices.
Sourdough is high in syns so should be consumed in moderation but it is a healthy choice to have in comparison to regular white bread since it is low in sugar and fermented which makes it great for your digestive system.
Sourdough has similar values no matter where you buy it from, but they can differ slightly according to size, so as you can stay on track with your syns we've listed some syn values of this bread down below to help you compare.
If you find sourdough to be too high in syns there are plenty of other low-syn bread alternatives to switch to, you can also use some as your healthy extra B fibre allowance to help free up syns.
To conclude, sourdough is quite a high syns bread having 5 syns for a 40g slice and 9 syns for an 80g slice, we would therefore suggest having this bread in moderation or switching to a low syn alternative like wholemeal bread which can be used as your healthy extra B allowance on the plan.
