    It has said 1 syn per slice online for a while but the magazine still says half a syn. I never eat the stuff so it doesn't matter to me but it might be worth a call to HQ?

    I thought half a syn each was wrong as a healthy extra is usually 6 syns so you would need to eat 12 of them for an HEB! So yeah 1 syn each sounds more reasonable, the syn value on the package is wrong, I think.

    Not all HE are 6 syns.....another one that I can think of off hand is 454g rhubarb which equates to half a syn!!
    Don't be fooled into thinking they are all the same! ;)

    If they are changing syn value, then I would just go by what is written on the actual packet - the new higher syn pack will have the higher amount on it. Until then ... if it ain't broke ... :)

    I too have just brought some packets to try that recipe!
    Still going to give it a go though! And i have been told they aren't too bad in the recipes its just on there own as a crispbread they're not very nice!
    Shame they've gone upto 1 syn though! Does that now effect all the recipes they are in??

    I could never eat them on their own or even like a ryvita they taste like what i imagine a cardboard box would. I have 1 in my Alpen and can't even taste them once the milk has soaked thro.

    I have just baked the mince (fruit) scan bran pies for taster tomorrow. I have adapted the recipe slightly adding more mince but it worked out to exactly 1 syn each, and I am sticking to it :mad: as that is what the packet says! Will be interesting to hear if our C advises me I miscalculated...like she did with the couscous cake... but now I know I was right there :D
    I wish SW would make up their minds!

    I am back from weigh in tonight, and asked my SWC, she hadn't heard anything about the syns for them going up to 1. She just received a new lot too, each with 1/2 syn written on pack.

    The SW website states though they are 1 syn each.

    I am gonna email them, I'll be back with a reply from them as soon as I have one :)

    Our consultant was promoting them on Mon and she said half syn each, I have been eating them and so have others just 2 a day and it's deffo helped us with the losses. I like to have laughing cow extra light triangle split on the two then slice banana over the top and its so yummy.
