Actually No!: The packets are marked as zero calories per lobbied federal rules which allow rounding up to 0.999 down to zero. Read the fine print ; you will see dextrose as 1st ingredient, a sugar (a "food nutrient" once absorbed); study: "sugar naming conventions". All sugars release energy when "burned" ; body can convert ; store them as fats. They are just less problematic than glucose & esp. fructose.
