Dear Tina
I am not sure what you are asking? Do you want the chemical formulas for sugars and starches, or what? If this is what you are looking for, then you need to go to a university library and ask the librarian to help you find these formulas in various textbooks.
Carbs include breads, breakfast cereals, grains, flours, cakes, biscuits, rice, samp, sorghum, oats, wheat, rye, barley, etc and all sugars which are found in sweets, chocolate, fruit, fruit juice, sweetened cold drinks and jam.
Hope this helps
