Are Weight Watchers Wraps Still a Healthy Extra? | Slimming World

Slimming World members have been at panic stations over the last few days, with rumours circulating that Weight Watchers white wraps are no longer classed as a Healthy Extra.

The worry of this happening has stemmed from several Slimming World members noticing that the recipe on the Weight Watchers white wraps packaging had changed slightly, with some noticing that the size of the wraps have been fluctuating of late.

Then some people saw rumours all over Facebook that Slimming World were “investigating” and that they should no longer be used as a HEB whilst this was happening.

They then posted this to our Facebook group, which has lead to a whole load of commotion. I think it’s fair to say that people following Slimming World love their wraps!

We’ve been waiting for an official statement from Slimming World, as Pinch Of Nom feel it’s really important to get the official word from Slimming World with matters relating to big changes with the Food Optimising plan.

We state in everything that we publish that we are not associated to Slimming World in any way, and it’s really important to go to your consultant or Slimming World direct, as we do, to get the most up-to-date information available.

Slimming World have today released a statement to consultants to confirm that Weight Watchers white wraps are indeed STILL a Healthy Extra B choice for one wrap, with a slight change of Syn value from 5.5 Syns per wrap to 6 Syns per wrap.

Yes! Weight Watchers Wraps Still A Healthy Extra

The official statement from Slimming World head office states:

‘There are some small changes to the nutritional content of this product, but the great news is that one wrap is still a Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice.

Those who wish to count the wrap as Syns will notice a slight increase to 6 Syns per wrap (Slimming World’s Syns Online will be updated shortly), but it is still a high fibre product and still a Healthy Extra.’

Great news for Slimming World members who still rely on the Weight Watchers white wraps being a Healthy Extra B choice!

Slimming World will be updating the Syns Search on the app, and all the recipes that use the wraps on the Pinch Of Nom website will be updated very soon to reflect the Syn value change.

  1. I have to admit to using the Mission wraps and syning them. In my opinion, they are much nicer, crimp beautifully, stay fresher a lot longer and are more of a uniform size in the pack rather than the random sizes in the WW bags. They do a standard size and a mini size too.

    1. Hi Jay
      Thanks for getting in touch. Many people prefer to use the WW wraps simply because they’re an HEB choice. Of course, if you’re willing to ‘spend’ your syns on wraps, that’s fine too!

  2. I just used a WW white wrap as a HEB and the taste has changed as well as being smaller.

    Not as nice so going to use an alternative brand from now on.

    I am a bit gutted really as old style was lovely.

    1. Hi Shirley
      Just bear in mind that you’ll need to syn any other wraps, as WW wraps (and BFree GF wraps) are the only ones that are HEB.

  3. i picked up the ww “high protein” seeded ones with extra quinoa. Can anyone tell me the syn value for these? as i take it just the white ones are HEXB..?

    1. Hi Tania
      Sorry, we can’t answer Syn queries, you’ll have to check the SW website. (If you don’t have access, take a look at FB pages, How Many Syns, or Syns Allowed.)
