    I ordered some Scan Bran online from a place called Vitshop, and they have just arrived.....

    Now tell me, what do I do with them? Eat them or put them on the bottom of shoes, they look horrendous - but here goes....good grief they look like plaster board..........mmmmm, well bit dry but I'll perservere, oh my dog likes them, LOL...

    So can someone tell me how many for a HEX and also how many syns are there in a Scan Bran too.

    Many thanks everyone. X

    i *think* they're 0.5 syns each. i've never tried them but i've heard that a lot of people make chocolate cakes with them for very little syns :D

    Scan bran can be used as a Healthy Extra (I think) but also has a syn value - but check it in your book or on the website! I say this because I tried it once and once only. To me it's like some weird punishment eating that stuff - even my pet rats didn't eat it, and they eat their own poo!

    Some people love it, so give it a go and try some of the recipes that use it. If you like it, it's a good food option.

    All the best!

    P.S You can have 5 as a HE but couldn't find the syn value (did a quick online check)

    oh, and it's 5 scan bran for a HEb, which i think is a bit stingy lol :p as most of the other HE's come to about 6 syns, and these come to 2.5 if i'm right with my 0.5 each!

    its probably because if u ate 12 as a healthy extra your body would disown you, until you eat some real food lol

    If you want to know the web site it's www.vit-shop.co.uk you can order as many as you like, I think they work out at 83p for a pack of 10, .....I ordered 10 packets because the p&p was cheaper that way, so I have to try and get through them somehow, I shall be munching forever, maybe it will be good exercise...LOL.
