This week’s Shopping Essentials Top Pick is a brand new product to hit the yogurt aisles – Onken Light & Fruity.


Shopping Essentials Top Picks provides you with even more information about a product that we’ve included in our very popular Slimming World Shopping Essentials list, published every Friday.

This week it’s the turn of Onken’s new product to face the hot seat!

I’m Pretty Sure I’ve Seen Big Pots Of Onken Before?

You have, don’t think they’ve been hiding on the shelves! Onken and other yogurt manufacturers have been producing large pots of their products for a long time now.


Big Pots Of Onken Yogurt That Are Low Syn?!

Yup! Many Slimming World members will rejoice in the news that they can now buy flavoured big pots of Onken yogurt that are only 1.5 Syns per 450g pot!

Onken Light & Fruity – 1.5 Syns per 450g pot!

It’s a common mistake for Slimming World members to presume that a ‘Fat Free’ yogurt is automatically Syn free (we’ve all done it!), but this can prove a Synful mistake, with some Onken 0% Fat fruit yogurt pots being as much as 7.5 syns for the whole pot!

What Flavours Does Onken Light & Fruity Come In?

Onken Light & Fruity is available in two fruity flavours, blueberry and passionfruit.

Both flavours have been launched as a 450g pot and are confirmed on the Slimming World Syns database as being 1.5 Syns per 450g pot.

They’re also gluten free!

The Possibilities Are Endless For Onken Light & Fruity!

Well, strictly speaking you’re not going to change the world with Onken Light & Fruity, but you can use it in a variety of ways!

Lemon & Blue Oats

You could give our Low Syn Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats even more of a blueberry flavour hit by replacing the Vanilla yogurt for Onken Light & Fruity Blueberry.

  1. This sounds lovely and I’m looking forward to have it for breal fast. It will be a change from over night oats which I have a lot.

    1. Hi Lucille
      A rough guide is 1 Syn for every 20 calories, but this only works for food that does not have a free food allowance. Also, if it’s not on the app you can work it out using the Syn calculator or the Snackulator on the SW website.

      We don’t allow syn requests in this group, but if you don’t have access to the SW website then there are a number of FB groups dedicated to providing Syn values.

      You can ask for Syn values in the How Many Syns Facebook group. Or you can look at syn values in the Syns Allowed Facebook Group.
