Different kinds of carbohydrates have different glycemic indexes. That is to say they vary in the amount that they push your blood sugar up. Worse than that, any given carbohydrate seems to have varying glycemic indexes for different individuals.

As an example, an ounce of white bread will bounce my blood sugar higher than an ounce of candy. This might or might not be true for someone else.
