Best Answer

There is no exact or direct answer to the question of how long does it take to carbohydrates to digest. There could be variations depending of the type of food we are talking about. Traditionally, there is the distinction between simple and complex carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates, like those contained by white bread and sugary foods are digested quickly, whereas complex carbs, as whole grain bread can take much longer to digest. This is because of the fiber content in the later, which make them better for digestion and intestinal health.

Carbohydrates have many different categories- simple sugars, complex carbs, and indigestible carbs (fiber). Depending on this and the glycemic index (the time it takes carbs to be broken down from carbs to sugar to glucose to energy) there can be many different answers.
