If you're grabbing a Tesco meal deal, you want to try and choose the most syn-friendly options so that they can fit in your 15 syn daily allowance, sandwiches can often contain a lot of syns due to the bread and fillings.

Tesco sandwiches have varying syn values according to the fillings inside, on average you can expect them to have around 15-16 syns, making them very high in syns.

In our syn guide below we will discuss why Tesco sandwiches are so high in syns, some syn values of them and low syn supermarket alternatives for easy lunches.

Why Are Tesco Sandwiches So High In Syns?

At 15-16 syns per sandwich, Tesco sandwiches are very high in syns, this is due to the white bread, which is synned on the SW plan at about 5-6 syns a slice plus non-syn friendly fillings like butter and mayonnaise.

Lots of Tesco sandwiches contain oil and high amounts of fat which increases their syn content, for example, a Tesco Prawn Mayonnaise Sandwich has around 8g of fat in per pack.

As a syn friendly alternative, we recommend making your own sandwiches at home for on-the-go, by using wholemeal bread, you can free up syns since you can use wholemeal bread as your healthy extra B.

You can also choose syn friendly fillings such as chicken coronation, made with fat free Greek yoghurt and spices or opt for light mayo instead of full-fat mayo.
