    Here is the information for 1 cup (80 g) of Natural Rolled Oats
    _____________________
    300 calories
    Fat 6g
    Saturated Fat 1 g
    Polyun 2 g
    Monoun 2 g
    Cholestrol 0 mg
    Total Carbohydrates 54 g
    Dietary Fibre 8g
    Soluble 4 g
    Insoluble 4 g
    Sugars 2 g
    Protein 10 g
    ______________________

    Questions:

    1. There are 54 g of carbs here, 8 g of which are dietary fibre. Of that 8 g of dietary fibre, 4 g is soluble and 4 g is insoluble. Why is dietary fibre important and what is the difference between soluble and insoluble?

    2. Excluding the 2 g of sugar carbs, there are 44 g of other carbs. What kind of carbs are these? Are they starch/complex carbs?

    3. When trying to eat foods with lots of carbs, it is important to try and get the foods with the least amount of sugar carbs and the most amount of starch/complex carbs, correct?

    Thanks for your answers.
