Based on research, it is advisable for diabetics to use a blend of sesame oil and rice bran oil to fulfill the mono and poly saturated fatty acids requirement. Desi ghee in moderation can also be included to fulfill the saturated fatty acid requirement. The reason for blending sesame oil and rice bran oil is that rice bran oil has a higher smoke point than sesame oil, so the blend has a higher smoke point than sesame oil alone. Also, rice bran oil is more economical, so the blend is more pocket-friendly. Fortune VIVO Diabetes-Care Oil is India’s first cooking oil for diabetes care which has created this blend of rice bran oil and sesame seed oil (80% rice bran oil and 20% sesame oil).
