From what I can find out about it, it looks like it is worse than regular palm oil.

It seems they remove the "unsaturated" fatty acids, which makes it more saturated and solid.

One of the reasons companies say they use Palm oil over Palm Kernel and Coconut is because the Palm Oil has less saturated fats (though still way too much). So, now, they have found a way to increase the percentage of saturated fats, which makes it more solider (probably better for the company and product) and worse for you and your heart.

I would avoid it.

Hope this helps
