    Help! Like a total idiot I thought that 2 slices from a Allison 400Gb Wholemeal Batch loaf would be my healthy extra for today. I've just gone to update my food diary and it says 2 slices from a 400g wholemeal loaf (not Batch)!!! agggh!!!

    What do I do? its 4 syns a slice and I had 2 - what a waste of syns if I have to syn both slices. Can i just syn 1 and have the other as my HEXB?

    Depending on how good you want to be! I'd syn them both at 8 syns, but then people would maybe use one slice as a B choice.

    The reason it's not a B choice is because it's too high in calories (most HEX's are 6 syns).

    You can have 57g of wholemeal bread a HEB though so you could weigh two slices and then work out the syns for the excess.

    Definitely can. Checked the book and it says 57 g of wholemeal bread is a healthy b.

    I'm not sure you can do the 57g thing with the seeded batch loaf as it's not classed as wholemeal bread.
    Happy to be corrected but I just don't think it's the same.

    You're right about seeded batch loafs- the seeds mean they can't be used as a HEXB. But plain old wholemeal bread is fine and the Allison Wholemeal batch bread doesn't have seeds so is okay. You just need to weigh it because 2 slices is more than 57g

    I just had the the same problem today. I had 2 slices of the Alisons wholemeal batch 400g loaf, thinking it was a HEXB. I worked out that 1 and half slices is the equiv of 57g, so thats my HEXB and the remaining is 1.5 syns. Each slices weighs about 36g btw. So not a lot compared to 8 syns!
    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Since this post, the heB amounts have changed-you now get 60g of wholemeal bread-so it'll help a little
