RE: My edit (angiekae68)

The USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference shows that 10 grams, i.e., ten individual packets, of Splenda (NDB No: 19868) have 33 Calories. Ten grams of Splenda contain 9.00 g of carbohydrates consisting of 8.03 g of sugars (dextrose) and 0.96 grams of starch (maltodextrin).

From Michael Rae of the Calorie Restriction Society:

"Artificial sweeteners such as Splenda are mixtures of dextrose, maltodextrin, and sucralose. The carbohydrates in ten grams of Splenda have 33 Calories compared to 39 Calories for an equal weight of sugar. The manufacturers reduce the serving size so that the calories can be rounded to zero. You can check this using CRON-o-meter by typing "splenda" (USDA 19868) and specifying 10 grams.

These numbers here aren't quite right on a couple of fronts. First off, as regards soft drinks, the manufacturers don't use Splenda mix, which is bulked up as you describe for consumer use, but pure sucralose, which contains exceedingly close to zero metabolizable energy, so it doesn't apply to them (or to other premanufactured foods).

As to Splenda proper: the error here is that you're assuming that one substitutes the stuff for sugar on a gram-for-gram basis, which for the packets you don't: as the USDA entry notes, a packet is only 1 g, but it replaces 1 tsp (4.2 g) of table sugar. So you're replacing 16.3 Calories with 3.3 Calories -- a substantial savings. Cf the manufacturer's information: www.splendaprofessional . com

... pp. 13-14, where they round UP a bit, indicating that a packet has 1g carb and 4 Calories. (SPLENDA® Sugar Blend and Granulated are
higher-Calorie as they contain a lot more sugar, for the bulking
properties required to substitute in baking and other projects, but
still contain a lot fewer Calories than pure sucrose).
