    Default Pasta: a simple or complex carb?

    I've always assumed it to be a simple carb comparable to white bread or white rice but I've seen it a few times on lists of "good carbs."

    Any one know the low down?

    Yes, I think they're deluding themselves. I can only see wholewheat pasta being a complex carb.

    Beat, you disappoint me. I thought this was going to be a thread about what your favorite pasta is.

    Yes, I love it too. Specially with a tomato-y sauce.

    I hate when spaghetti has chunks of tomato in it, probably because I don't like tomato's.

    Scientific definition of simple carb => simple sugar... monosaccharides (glucose, frutose, lactose, galactose) or disaccharides which is two monosaccharides linked together.

    That's not really what they're referring to when they talk about simple vs complex carbs though... Even some complex carbs are healthy.

    The easiest way to know whether it's "good" carbs or not is in refinement. The more refinement eg processed potato powder in chips, the worse it is for you.
