I thought it was free!!
I have just wolfed down a Bakewell tart scan bran cake, only to double check the ingredients and realise that I used almond extract instead of essence!
This product doesn't seem to feature in anything official. Kcals aren't listed on the bottle and the Internet forums seem to say lots of different things!!
Potentially I have eaten 10 syns, which means the chunky kit kat I've had my eye on is out the window!!!
I'm not sure of the sun value, but if it is 10 syns, it's not the end if the world. It could have been much worse! Try not to dwell on it and move on from it xx

Thank you! Good advice, will have the kit kat tomoz!
Is cake made from scan bran allowed then?
I get confused with what is allowed and what counts as tweaking/cheating e.g couscous cake, pasta n sauce quiche, lasagna crisps I am informed is cheating?! X
I'm guessing because scan bran is a Heb rather than free is why it's allowed? Not sure though x

Flavouring are free, whether they are essence or extract as far as I know. Certainly all other extract I use are free eg vanilla, lemon, orange. The amount you are using is minimal anyway so I wouldn't worry about it x
I thought that almond essence and almond extract were more or less the same thing. Either way, surely you can't have used very much, certainly not 10 syns-worth.
Most I found were zero cals. One was 37 cal for 1 tablespoon .. thats the worst it could be!
All that scan bran will give its rewards before weigh in hehe bog roll on standby! !

I've read somewhere that a capful is 2.5 and I put 4 in!
It was ok in order to get the scan bran down, but I can think of better ways of using 10 syns!
The main ingredient is oil so can see why it might have be synned!
Some essence/extracts are sugar based, obviously those are the ones to avoid. I have some lovely Madagascan vanilla extract with seeds in my cupboard. Main ingredient is sugar, so it sits there, mocking me with it's deliciousness.... sigh.... lol

Why not use it? You would only need to use a very small amount so it wouldn't be high in syns.
