Hovis rolls!

I personally would just count it as a HEX B but if you want to be on the safe side then allow a syn for it. I can't imagine an extra 3g of bread being 1 syn though! (if my maths is correct, it is 0.3 of a syn!)


Nojo on the YoYo
I would say that the OP is right to count an extra 1.5 syns. I have trawled high and low for a 57g roll and only recently Tesco brought out a 57g roll which is exactly HEXb compatible, hurrah for Tesco.

However, Hovis rolls have around about 40 cals and a little more sat fat in than other rolls (eg, I was in Asda and compared them to another wholemeal roll, which was 64g but around 40 cals less and 0.1 less sat fat)

So OP – to stick 100% to plan do your wisely worked out 1.5 syns OR pop along to Tesco to get your Healthy Living/Healthy Eating (I can never remember which it is) wholemeal rolls for 99p for 6.


the new hovis rolls in the 6 pack in wholemeal have always been dead on 57g or under so i dont think its really worth worrying about, id just count it as a hex B hun. :D
I really don't think 3g would be 1.5syns however, like you I prefer to over syn than risk it. I may be inclined to lower hat amount though.
Do you go to class? Perhaps ask your consultant if you do.

I know what you mean about having a change from salad!
its .375 of a sym extra so allow 1/2 a syn
