It's a source of carbs, so if you get too much of it, then yes, it may foil
your LC WOE.

It's also very high on the Glycemic Index scale.

Is it bad for you? To be avoided on a low carb diet?

Splenda itself doesn't have carbs (liquid splenda = 0 carbs).
But it's so sweet that they use maltodextrin as a filler. That's where the
carbs come from.
