    Newb Here: "Unlabeled" Carbs?

    Sorry if this a dumb question:

    When you look at a food label and it says this product has 22 grams of carbs with 7 grams of sugar & 2 grams of fiber there are still 13 grams (59%) of the total carbs left that are not specifically stated.

    Is it better/worse to eat something with a higher/lower percentage of sugar & fiber?

    Or I guess it's all just going to become sugar in the end?

    It really depends on the food in question. The other 13 grams of carbohydrate are more than likely starch, unless you're eating something made with sugar alcohols. Whether or nor this is a good thing depends on how processed that particular food is.
