Does White Bread Have Syns?

If you wondering whether or not you can use white bread as your healthy extra B, the answer is, unfortunately, no, unless it is a high fibre version. This is because white bread has a higher sugar content and is less nutritional than wholemeal bread.

You would need to syn white bread at around 3.5 syns a slice or even more depending on the size.

Final Words

Overall, at 3-5 syns a slice, wholemeal bread is still low in syns and make a great high fibre snack to have or use as your Healthy extra B to save some syns. You should always check the size of the loaf beforehand as this can count as extra syns the thicker it is.
