Pepsi That Fights Fat?
“Pepsi Special,” the new drink distributed by Pepsi’s partner in
Japan, Suntory Holdings Limited, contains dextrin, a dietary fiber that
dissolves in water.
A Suntory news release claims the drink acts by “suppressing the absorption of fat” .
Pepsi Special has received the label “FOSHU” in Japan, a government designation that stands for “Food for Specified Health Uses.” A Japanese government website states that “FOSHU” products are meant to be consumed “by people who wish to control health conditions, including blood pressure or blood cholesterol.”
Dextrin is a synthetic dietary fiber. So remember one thing the more man fools with something the more it's usually bad for you. Dextrin has been tried before in chips and so forth. The results are usually the runs. It makes you have to go a lot. The other problem I see is you are still getting lots of sugar in this drink as well. Sugar is the problem to begin with. Adding a synthetic fiber isn't going to solve that problem.
A better choice while not a perfect one is to take out the sugar and put in something more natural like Stevia. There are soft drinks already on the market made this way. They are usually located in the health foods and organic foods sections of grocery stores.
I look at those Stevia drinks as an occasional treat not something I would drink three times a day or even once every day. Nothing beats water, and after water nothing beats good old healthy tea.
So be careful if this gimmick makes it to the states. I recommend
passing this one by.
