Zero Calorie Sugar

So when does 3.36 = 0? When it's the calorie content of Splenda.
According to the FDA, if a single serving of something contains fewer than 5 calories, the manufacturer is allowed to lie and claim that it has zero calories.

Further, when you consider that a single service of Splenda is 1 gram, while a single serving of sugar is 2.8 grams, well, if we just reduced the size of sugar packets to a 1 gram serving size then, since it would only have 3.85 calories, we could also claim that it was zero calories.

I see a business opportunity here......
