    But why do we have to count 1 carb for one packet of sweetener?

    sweetner

    If the bottle says 0 carbs then you don't have to count any carbs.
    By the way, we don't have splenda in Israel and I use saccharine as my sweetner - 0 carbs!!!

    Carbs

    Diet Coke has no carbs. The packaged sweeteners, Equal, Splenda are mixed in a powdered base that has about 1 carb per package. That's why we count them.

    However, when using most packaged foods, if they say 0 carbs, count that as 1 carb because most foods will have at least a fraction of a carb, perhaps even .9. So it's safer to count them as 1 carb.

    Good Luck!
