It should only really be synned when using it as a main ingredient in something.
Like the cakes mentioned ideally. It's easy to overeat those kind of things if they're low synned. Hence SW advising counting Syns per tbsp.
But in all honesty, 1/2 per tbsp is nothing in the grand scheme of things
I don't syn it if I'm using it in green tea or with yogurt, but if was making a cake I would (but I love cake so it's better for me if it's higher synned so I think twice before eating loads
