Question Points to ponder while cooking or baking

Thanks to Kelly _S for writing to Splenda and sharing this info!

SPLENDA(R) Granular
1 tsp = 0.5 gm carb = 2 calories
one half cup = 12 gm carb = 48 calories
1 cup = 24 gm carb = 96 calories

*1 tsp. = 1 serving

Packet of SPLENDA(R)
1 packet = .9 gm of carb = 4 calories

*1 packet has the sweetness of 2 tsp of sugar

Note: Per U.S. labeling laws, anything with less than 5 calories per serving, is
properly labeled as "zero" or no-calorie.

The caloric and carbohydrate content for sugar is as follows:

Sugar
1 tsp = 4 gm of carb= 16 calories
one half cup = 96 gm of carb= 385 calories
1 cup = 192 gm of carb = 770 calories

Note: The calories and carbohydrates in SPLENDA(R) No Calorie Sweetener come
from dextrose and/or maltodextrin, which are added for bulk. Sucralose, the
sweetening ingredient in SPLENDA(R) Brand Sweetener, has no calories and is not
a carbohydrate.

Granular - sucralose, maltodextrin (0.5 gram per serving)
Packets - sucralose, maltodextrin and dextrose (less than 1 gram per packet)

Default I can't believe it's not butter points.

Thanks again to Kelly_S for originally posting this info!

Here is calorie and fat information for I Can't Belive It's Not Butter Spray:

12.5 sprays (2.5 grams) = 10 calories; 1 fat gram
25 sprays (5.0 grams) = 20 calories; 2 fat grams
37.5 sprays (7.5 grams) = 30 calories; 3 fat grams

24 sprays or 1 teaspoon = 17 calories; 1.9 fat grams = W/W point
72 sprays or 1 tablespoon = 52 calories; 5.8 fat grams = 1 W/W point

Also many people utilize PAM Cooking Sprays and over use them so when I wrote to them I finally got a response to my letter I wrote reference PAM.

For the original a 1 second spray has 7 calories/.76 fat grams so a 7 second spray would be 1 point.

For the butter a 1 second spray has 7 calories/.81 fat grams so a 7 second spray would be 1 point.
