What you eat is not necessarily what gets ingested (what goes into your blood stream).

The BAD - Refined (ground) grains are ingested as sugar, raising your blood sugar & insulin levels.
The GOOD - Fibre bound carbohydrates are ingested and converted with the help of your gut microbes to medium chain fatty acids (fat) in the colon.

The most healthful carbohydrates are those left with fiber where nature puts them: in whole grains, beans, nuts and other seeds, vegetables and fruits. The most harmful carbohydrates are foods made from refined (from grinding, pulverizing & extracting etc) carbohydrates : flour, white rice or milled corn, fruit juices and all extracted sugars. For more details check out the article by Dr Gabe Mirkin "Why Whole Grains Are Healthful".

Note - I personally believe most grains (especially wheat & similar grains) are best avoided.
