Not 100% sure what you're asking, so I'll answer a few different ways.
Complex carbs do take a big longer to absorb due to the need for the longer carbon chain to be broken. Fructose goes to the liver for conversion first while glucose is readily available. Glucose and fructose have different GLUT transporters, so a mix can be absorbed at a higher rate than simply one or the other alone.
U described the difference between an simple and complex *cough*, carb in your first statement, right?....Does the rest infer that there will be a difference in how the body will use the two different carbs?....Can one or the other be stored more easily as fat?....
