Many people assume yoghurt is a healthy low syn snack to have on the slimming world diet, but flavoured and full-fat yoghurts can have a high amount of syns if you are not careful.
Yeo Valley strawberry flavour yoghurt has 5 syns for a 100g pot and its natural yoghurt has 7 syns for a 500g pot making them both fairly high in syns.
Below is our small guide we will discuss why Yeo Valley yoghurts are high in syns, which yoghurts are low in syns, the other syn values of the Yeo Valley yoghurt range and some low syn natural and strawberry alternatives from other brands.
You might be shocked to learn that Yeo valley yoghurts in natural and strawberry flavours are both high in syns, but this is down to fat and sugar content in each type of yoghurt.
Yeo Valley strawberry yoghurt, for example, is made with a high amount of sugar due to its strawberry flavouring, natural yoghurt, on the other hand, is made with full-fat milk which contributes to its high-calorie content.
If you are looking to find syn free yoghurts to snack on in the SW plan then you need to stick with zero % fat yoghurts that have plain flavouring to save syns. Avoid flavoured yoghurts as these have unnecessary sugar when you could flavour your own with berries or sweeteners.
