I found this on an old thread so not sure how accurate the syn value is but I think it definitely is syns, and it's probably close to this. Only wholemeal counts as Healthy Extra B except for a few certain ones chosen by SW I believe.

Chipmunk is right - it doesn't count as a healthy extra because it is not wholemeal I'm afraid

I had issues with this as well, have now stuck religiously to wholemeal. Maybe there should be a sticky about bread...?

Hee hee! My OH always gets things like that wrong when doing the shopping! He comes home and I'm like * sad face* "oh...I can't eat that" Poor men!

Just made me giggle! Sorry, not helpful I realise!
