Complex carbohydrates are long chains of sugar molecules (polysaccharides) that are not quickly broken down by the body into glucose (a monosaccharide). Complex carbs are not fat soluble. Items that are considered complex carbohydrates contain whole grain or whole fruit items rather than refined starch, white sugar, or high fructose (monosaccharide) corn syrup.

Complex carbohydrates contain more than one sugar molecule which gives them the name complex or the prefix poly- before saccharide (sugar).
