Default Sugar Substitutes?

Can anyone tell me if there are carbs in Splenda or Equal? I use them in my coffee. I use 2 packets per cup of coffee.

I believe they each count as 1 carb, I use splenda and that is how my atkins app counts them

Dr. Atkins advises using Splenda (Sucralose). Each packet counts as 1 carb, with a limit of 3 packets per day.
