Are Space Raiders High In Syns? - Our Unofficial Slimming World Syn Guide!
Space raiders are a childhood favourite for many of us, and make a great snack, but since crisps are not syn-free food on the slimming world, you need to make sure you are tracking the syns in these crisps.
Space raiders typically have 3 syns for a 13g pack and around 6 syns for a 25g pack no matter the flavour choice, making these crisps high in syns.
We've discussed in more detail below why Space Raiders are so high in syns, some syn values of them and low syn alternative crisps for syn friendly snacking.
Why Are Space Raiders So High In Syns?
At 6 syns for a 25 pack, Space Raiders are very high in syns for just a small portion, taking nearly half of your 15 syn daily allowance, allowing you to have up to two before using all of your syns.
Space raiders get their high syn value from the fat content, having up to 6g of fat in just one packet, this is because the crisps are fried in oil. These crisps are very high in sodium too so we suggest having them in moderation.
