Not All Carbs Are Created Equal

Unfortunately, aad! labels don’t distinguish between complex carbohydrates and simple carbe bohydrates (like sugar), But you can get a sense of the type of carbohydrate by looking at the grams of fiber. The higher the fiber content, the more complex carbohydrates you’re getting. lf you don’t see a listing for fiber, that’s because there is none, period. Aim for at least 3 grams of fiber per serying. And to make sure that a product doesn’t derive most of its carbohydrates from sugar, check the ingredients for sugar synonyms, such as corn syrup, sorbitol, dextrose, glucose, fructose, maltose, honey, and molasses.
