What are Carbs? Sugars: short-chain carbohydrates found in foods; i.e. glucose (honey, peaches, berries), fructose (apples, grapes), galactose (dairy, avocados) and sucrose (nectarines, mangos). Starches: long chains of glucose molecules, which eventually get broken down into glucose in the digestive system; i.e. amylose, amylopectin (potatoes, rice)
