Does it say anywhere the conversion from sugar to somersweet?

Like cup for cup - the same sweetness as sugar? Since splenda measures the same as sugar, if you can find the conversion rate for sugar to somersweet, flipping that conversion will give you the rate for somersweet to splenda.

Did that make sense?
