Hello,

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

Agave nectar contains more calories than splenda.

It provides 45 calories in one tablespoon.

Splenda is artificial sweetener & has much less calories.

Here you can see the comparison with different sweeteners.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
