RICE IS A FORM OF COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES

The two major forms are:

* simple sugars (simple carbohydrates), such as fructose, glucose, and lactose, and also found in nutritious whole fruits
* starches (complex carbohydrates), found in foods such as starchy vegetables, grains, rice, and breads and cereals
