Actually if an item says 35 carbs and 5 grams of sugr.. it does NOT equal 40 carbs. it's 35 carbs..some of that coming from sugar and other from complex carbs and other from fiber. "sugar free can jave lots of carbs.. and yes the reality is most all carbs break down to glucose. all that matters is the carb count. some people back out some of the carbs when there is a lot of fiber.. ymmv.. as a type 1 for 29 years and pumping 24 of them and bolusing based on carbs.. total carbs is all that matters don't even look at the grams of sugar
