Most labels are required to show total carbohydrates, aswell as how many grams of total carbohydrates come from sugar. If the label showed 30g of carbs and 10g sugar then the 20g that aren’t sugar would be complex carbohydrates.
But this can be misleading, just because the remaining carbs are not sugar it doesnt mean they are necessarily any better for you.
