Sleep easy, folks.
The report found that palm oil becomes more carcinogenic when heated above 200°C (392°F). While no consumers typically eat the spread heated at that temperature, some companies do cook palm oil at high temperatures to burn off its natural red coloring and to neutralize its odor. Ferrero, the maker of Nutella, told Reuters its industrial processes do not reach that high temperature.
The stuff is sicky sweet anyway and I hate it when cheap bakeries use it to fill their donuts instead of using a chocolate pudding..
Take my Rocher? Right. From my cold, dead hands.
