Sugars

1. more carbohydrates per 100g

9.58g

Carbohydrates are composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and are divided in 4 groups: oligosaccharides (glycose), monosaccharides and disaccharides which are sugars and serve as a quick source of energy, while polysaccharides, like starches serve for storing energy.
2. smaller amount of sugars per 100g

1.1g

The total amount of sugars, including glucose, fructose, galactose, sucrose, lactose, maltose, and trehalose. A sugar-heavy diet can cause metabolic dysfunctions.

4. more glucose per 100g

0.05g

Glucose, also known as blood sugar, is the main source of energy.
5. less fructose per 100g

0.05g

Fructose, also called fruit sugar, is a monosaccharide which is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Consuming too much fructose can cause high blood pressure.
6. more starch per 100g

0.24g

Starch is a complex carbohydrate that is broken down into glucose, the main source of energy.
