I just noticed that splenda has dextrose and malodextrin.
I also have been reading that a lot of people add those two items to theres shakes.

my question is how many packet (the sugar ones) would it take daily to achieve the benefits of dextrose and malodextrin?

A teaspoon of splenda granular has 0.5g of maltodextrin, to provide volume so that it measures and sweetens spoon for spoon like sugar. Therefore a shake containing, say, 1g of carbs / lb of bodyweight for a 180 lb individual would require 360 teaspoons of splenda.
