Is it true that corn oil contains carbohydrates, just like corn?

No, this is not true. In fact, although it is extracted from the corn grain germs which are high in carbohydrates, corn oil does not contain carbohydrates at all (0 g of carbs). Also, corn oil (which is commonly consumed) is one of the oils that are the richest in vitamin E. Also, it is rich in omega 6 but low in omega 3. It is a fluid oil of a light yellowish color, that is relatively odorless and of a mild flavor.

In addition, edible oils are vegetable oils that are intended for culinary use. Depending on their type, they can be used for seasoning and/or cooking or for frying. They are carbohydrate-free and are almost totally made of fat.

Since each type of oil has a fatty acid composition that differs from other oils and none of them has a particularly ideal nutritional composition, it is always necessary for us to vary the types of oil we consume and alternate between them so that to guarantee a good balance between the various types of fatty acids and thus to be able to take full advantage of the excellent antioxidant virtues that some of them possess.
