Carbohydrates are found in many of the foods we eat every day. Carbohydrates give us the energy we need to complete our many daily activities, and different foods possess different amounts and types of carbohydrates. In this installment in the Closer Look at Nutrition series, we will explore these different categories of carbohydrates and where we get them in our diet.
