Lots of foods contain syns on the slimming world plan which you wouldn't expect, even mints, and to lose weight successfully on your plan you should make sure you are tracking all the syns of no-free foods.
Trebor soft mints in particular have 1 syns each and a half syn if you buy the sugar-free ones making them a nice low syn treat to have now and then.
To help you stay on track with all your extras such as mints and sweets, we've put together a small guide below which will take you through why mints have syns, how many you can eat on the SW plan and some low syn alternatives from other brands.
Most people often assume that mints would have no syns or calories, but due to the high sugar content inside of them, this contributes to their syns.
At only 1 syn per mint these are still low syns and are the same for both the spearmint and peppermint flavour, you would have to have up to 15 a day to meet your daily syn allowance which is over a whole pack!
As the sugar-free mints have less sugar, this also means fewer calories which explains why there is half a syn each, you could have up to 30 of these till you exceed your syns. We would suggest however only having mints in moderation, as full sugar ones can be deceiving with their calories.
Trebor is not the only brand of low syn mints on the market, you can also find others from different brands, we've listed them below to help you out.
To conclude, Trebor mints are very low in syns, at one syn each for the peppermint and spearmint flavour or half a syn for the sugar-free one. These mints however should still be eaten in moderation as they are high in sugar and easy to overeat with too.
