Pepsi Intros Fat-Blocking Soda In Japan
Pepsi this week launched a soft drink in Japan that claims to help reduce fat levels in the body, reports ABC News.
Dubbed “Pepsi Special,” the soft drink contains dextrin, a fiber that distributor Suntory claims helps reduce fat levels in the body.
Pepsi told ABC News that the product is for Japanese market only, which has a unique soft-drink culture (Pepsi already sells exotic varieties like strawberry milk and salty watermelon Pepsi products in Japan, a spokesperson noted).
Kirin, better known for its beer, released its own sugar-free, dextrin soda this summer: the “Mets” cola.
