1.5 tsps of baking powder is less than 0.5 syns-  so for that reason the amount of baking powder in a serving used is negligible.

Nutritional information is an estimate and is to be used for informational purposes only.

Ingredients can vary greatly from brand to brand and therefore it would be impossible to give accurate information. Also, double-check syn values of synned ingredients as different brands can vary.
