Since starting Slimming World in 2010 I've always wondered about the supposed logic of blended or mashed fruit needing to be synned. I just cannot see how blending etc can alter the nutritional value, or sugar composition of the fruit in a way that would introduce syns. It just isn't biochemically possible. In addition, as we all know, the digestive system has to mash up the food before it can be broken down anyway, so what's the difference?
Can anyone who goes to a group explain what consultants actually say about blending fruit as I've never been and I'm trying to work out what information or research Slimming World uses to support this theory.
P.S. I love Slimming World, so please don't think I'm having a go at anybody!
