    complex carbohydrates?

    "Eat complex carbohydrates - brown, dense and grainy with all the vitamins, minerals and fibre retained."

    Is it saying that complex carbohydrates are brown, dense, grainy and contain vitamins, minerals and fibre?

    Re: complex carbohydrates?

    I think it means to eat those complex carbohydrates that are brown, dense, etc- eat granary bread rather than white.

    the term brown, dense, grainy don't refer to complex carbohydrates but to products (foods) that contain complex carbohydrates - and these products are usually brown, dense & grainy....think of wholemeal bread, pasta or brown rice..

    Weclome, Veronikap.

    Try,

    "The term . . . doesn't refer to . . . ."

    All the best.
