Brief Answer: Sure you can use it ... Detailed Answer: Hello, welcome back, Diabetic diet is a big topic to know.. so its better explained by a dietician depending upon the patient BMI (body mass index ) as well as patient food habbits. It actually varies from country to country also. Canola oil is low in saturated fat and contains both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. So you can consume it with fish. Even though canola oil is good for health,it should be used in little quantity . As you already know this.. fish is best for diabetics and heart disease patients. If you have any doubts please get back to me. regards, DR.VENKAT
