Carbohydrates are an es­sen­tial part of our diet, along with pro­tein and fat. They are used for en­ergy, keep­ing our mus­cles and es­sen­tial or­gans work­ing. Put sim­ply, there are two types of carbohydrates: sim­ple sug­ars, such as sweets, fruit juice and the sugar you put in your tea; and com­plex carbohydrates, which are starches like bread, pasta and pota­toes. Both types be­come glu­cose in the body and are used as an en­ergy source.
