I don't use packets. They are different than the granular.
Hmm...from the Splenda website "SPLENDA* No Calorie Sweetener can lower carbohydrates and calories in recipes. For example, a cup of SPLENDA* Granular has 96 calories and 24 grams of carbohydrates, compared to the 770 calories and 192 grams of carbs found in a cup of sugar."
Maybe the nutritiondata info is wrong?
Fet, 28packs is just over half a cup. 48packs is a cup.
There's no way 1 packet is a teaspoon. [/b][/quote]
According to the computer 1 gram is .21 of a teaspoon
ok and I believe I did my original calculations on 72 packets for 1.5 cups..

That's based on the density of water. Splenda is much less dense.
no no it was 48 tsps per cup..not pkts
All of this thinking about splenda and the math makes my head spin..I will just stick to my 1-2 pkts per day..and I think I will be just fine.On days I don't have oats I don't consume any.
Is 7-8 of the packets/day okay?
Hmmm. I think the packets are better than the splenda out of the bag
Is that your answer? :huh: :lol:
Is that amount okay?
I'm not Erik but from what I've read and seen, the packets aren't bad like the bags are.
You jest, right?! :lol3:
What exactly is supposed to be the argument against Splenda? Aside from the usual "there isn't enough research showing that it's safe" thing, I mean.
Sorry if this was posted somewhere already. I didn't read the entire thread.
No argument. My problem is over-consumption during comp prep. I cup has about 94 cals. These cals were not being added to my totals.
there was talk of flavoured splenda before..where do you buy this ive never seen or heard of such a thing!?!?!!?!?
I've seen it at Walmart. Most recently I bought some from Walgreens, but they only had the french vanilla kind.
this thread explains alot!
so maybe on in the USA.... im a proud canadian eh!!!!
