Mysuru scientists develop anti-obesity oil


In what is described as a major innovation, CFTRI has developed an anti-obesity edible oil (diacylglycerol oil).
CFTRI has claimed that it was a healthy vegetable oil prepared from sunflower oil.
In addition to maintaining healthy bodyweight, the oil provides energy and does not store as fat, according to the institute. CFTRI Director Ram Rajashekaran claimed that it was “one of its kind in the world” as a similar product developed in the past by a foreign country had to be withdrawn over the issue of “food safety”.
