Porridge pots

Someone posted that instant porridge pots are 9.5 syns - is this true ? Seems quite excessive ?

It is true.
Firstly they contain more oats than would be within your hex B allowance, so the quantity of fibre is also higher.
They also contain dried milk, sugars, etc. to make them into the usual porridge consistency. As you only add water to them, they add flavourings and milk powder to give them the texture/flavour you would expect.

To stick within your B allowances, measure out 40g of plain porridge oats, or use the recommended sachets:
Whites Toatly Oaty Sachets Porridge Oats, Original, dried (1 x 30g)
Quaker Oats Oat So Simple Gluten Free (1 x 35g)
Quaker Oats Oat So Simple Toffee Apple, Limited Edition (1 x 33.9g)
Quaker Oats Oat So Simple Original, Big Bowl (1 x 39g)
Quaker Oats Oat So Simple Pumpkin Spice, Limited Edition (1 x 35.4g)

Wow! Thanks for confirming! Think I'll stick to good ol' plain oats from now on! It just shows you (or not, actually) how much is hidden in these processed food products.

A tablespoon of honey (2.5 syns) and some cinnamon is very nice if using as your hex allowance. Plus I am a believer in some things are naturally good for us and honey is one of those things.
