Lager Syn Values
From our comprehensive table, we find that regular strength lagers typically contain approximately 1.7 syns per 100ml, translating to about 9.5 syns in a standard UK pint.
|Name||Syns per ml||Syns per 1/2 Pint||Syns per 330ml Bottle||Syns per Pint|
In the table, we can see the syn values for a variety of popular lagers. At the lower end, Carlsberg and Amstel have the least syns, with 4.54 and 4.40 syns per half pint, respectively. Meanwhile, San Miguel tops the list, with 6.39 syns per half pint. Most lagers fall within the range of about 5 to 6 syns per half pint.
When it comes to 330ml bottles, the range is slightly wider. Carlsberg and Amstel still lead with the lowest syn values, at 5.28 and 5.11 syns, respectively. San Miguel again tops the list, with 7.42 syns. The majority of the lagers have between 6 and 7 syns per 330ml bottle.
Lastly, for those preferring a full pint, Carlsberg and Amstel are still the most syn-friendly, with 9.08 and 8.80 syns per pint, respectively. San Miguel is again the highest, at 12.78 syns per pint. Most lagers fall within the range of about 10 to 12 syns per pint.
It’s important to keep in mind that these values can vary slightly depending on the specific pour or bottle size and the brewing process.
Is Lager worth the syns?
Is lager worth the syns? That’s a question you might be asking yourself. On a per milliliter basis, lagers have relatively low syn values, making them one of the less syn-heavy alcoholic choices. However, this can be misleading because lagers are often consumed in larger quantities, such as by the pint.
When you consider a typical pint serving, the syn values rise substantially. For example, even the lowest syn lager, Amstel, still carries 8.8 syns in a pint. San Miguel, at the higher end, packs a hefty 12.78 syns per pint. This can quickly add up, especially during a social event or a night out.
Compared to stronger drinks like spirits, which are typically consumed in smaller quantities, you might find that you use up more of your daily syn allowance with lager. Also, unlike spirits, lagers can’t be made ‘syn free’ by mixing with zero-calorie mixers.
However, if you enjoy a cold pint and it helps you feel satisfied and stick to your diet in the long run, it may be worth the syns to you. It’s all about finding the balance that works for your lifestyle and your weight loss goals. Remember, the Slimming plan is designed to be flexible and sustainable for life.
