    What is it?

    Is it just available at groups or in shops too? IF it is just at groups, is there another more mainstream alternative?

    It's like a crispbread but can also be used in cakes. You can buy it from Holland and Barret.
    It's not that nice when eaten as a crispbread to be honest so i think most people use it in cakes.
    But from what i hear it is supposed to help speed up losses (correct me if im wrong anyone?)

    Ooh - speeding up losses sounds good!

    I forgot to ask, if not eaten as part of HEB, what syns does it have?

    Thanks Ellebear - my body is telling me I need a bit more fibre in my life, if you know what I mean - lol!

    I shall try them - don't really eat cakes, so will see if I can stomach them as a crispbread first!

    My OH's mum eats them with cottage cheese on top and thinks they're lovely! I tried it once with a laughing cow triangle spread on and managed to eat it but wasn't really to my taste! I do like the chocolate scan bran cake though :D

    I think i read somewhere they had gone up to 1 syn? I could be wrong though so hopefully someone can correct me?

    Ooh i'd like to try the oaty version! Never seen it in Holland and Barret though? xx

    i eat them with low fat cheese ontop of them also, i quite like them, but they are best in the chocolate scan bran cake. I only get mine from Holland and Barrett as i dont go to class anymore.

    i read they've went upto 1 syn also, even though it still says on the packet 1/2 syn. xx

    I like them with a laughing cow triangle on them, I only have a couple and I syn them.

    They taste like they have taken a bowl of all bran and crushed and flattened them to make a crispbread. :D
