How many Slimming World Syns are in these Marmite mac and cheese bites? 

Syns are trademarked by Slimming World, and values are only available to current paying members. 

As such, I have decided to omit Syn values from my recipes moving forward. 

Rest assured though, the recipes here will always be made to be as slimming friendly as possible. 

Refer to the official Slimming World app to calculate the Syns, or speak with your consultant for further guidance and advice.
