Mine is granulated Splenda. It says serving size is 1 tsp with less than 1 g of carbs or something like that. I also have the brown sugar but that is a blend of real sugar with splenda. I haven't used that yet.
I went and checked my big bag of Splenda because I sure don't want any sugar. What I have has no sugar in it, no calories and it says you can use it for baking and it measures cup for cup like sugar. I believe they do have sugar/Splenda mixes that you can buy in the store.
This bag also has a conversion chart on the back on the bottom right corner. Since I don't use the packets, I trust others who do. If the packets are more concentrated, then I guess they are.

Happiness is not the lottery. You don't win it. You have to choose it.
The Splenda in a packet is much more concentrated, the Splenda in the bag has a lot more sugar in it than the packets. In fact I think it's sort of 50/50. I know I cant use it due to my diabetes. Hugs, WW

SUMMER_WINE23, when you say huge bag, do you mean a huge bag of the Splenda for baking? I think that might measure a little differently than the packets. I think the packets are more potent. Here is a conversion chart on the splenda website:
In most recipes I see "one packet of Splenda" as part of the ingredients but my MIL sent me a huge bag of it and I wanted to know how many teaspoons in one packet of Splenda so I can make these awesome recipes.
