    Healthy Extra B - How Much Fibre Needed?

    Hiya,

    I know certain things cant be classed as a healthy extra B because it doesn't have enough fibre in.

    Does anyone know the minimum about of fibre something has to have in it so it can be classed as a healthy extra B at all please?

    I got a new porridge today and it has a good bit less fibre in it than two weetabix which i know you are allowed, so im doubtful it can be classes as a healthy extra B but did wonder on the amount of fibre needed to class as a healthy B.

    Hopefully makes sense Thank you xx

    Not sure what you mean by a new porridge? You can have porridge oats as a B choice. - I think it is 35g.

    Coco Pops Porridge - 27g sachet's - 107 cals each sachet - 2.3g of fibre in each.

    So i know this would be 5 syns if not enough fibre, but did just wonder how much fibre things have to have in them before they can be classed as a healthy B, as i know the Oats So Simple sachets are no longer Healthy Extra B's as not enough fibre in each sachet that you get

    It's not just a question of how much fibre. I looked this up on the Tesco website and it has 20g sugar per 100g, and nearly 7g of fat. I can't see this being counted as a healthy extra (frankly not healthy at all!) with all that sugar.

    I don't know what type of KRAVE you are referring to, but they are all very high in sugar. The basic milk chocolate one is 30% sugar (!!!) and 15% fat. That's not a healthy extra, I am sure, so you will have to syn it.

    It is really important to look at the nutrition labelling and check the sugar and fat content of foods. Or you can check it on the Tesco website which is very good for giving ingredients and nutritional information.

    No, I was sat to know that too, apparently not enough fibre. I'm not too sure about the multigrain how ever, I was just having the basic sachets xx

    Thank you, this I am aware of also. I haven't classed them as a healthy extra, I have syned them, it was just a case of wondering what actually makes something a healthy extra as the list isn't always updated and it is always something good to know.

    Just the same for syns, they have a way to work this out yourself, 20 calories = 1 syn.

    I wondered if there was a way to do this with healthy extra's, would something with so much fibre and calories etc class as a healthy extra and you can work this out yourself.

    I'll continue to syn them and just keep an eye out.
