Pepsi seeks lead in the cola wars with new fat-blocking soda

In the endless battle to shake their growing reputation as a key trigger point in Americas obesity epidemic, the major soda manufacturer, Pepsi, has a new invention for the soda market: Pepsi Special, the fat-blocking cola.
On November 13, consumers in Japan will believe they can say yes to the fries and even add a little bacon on that burger as they head through the drive-thru, as long as they include a large Pepsi Special with their meal deal. At least thats the concept portrayed in the commercial, as Pepsis new soda promises to reduce the absorption of fat from food intake, thanks to a special ingredient known as dextrin. Dextrin is a fiber-rich starch commonly used in the food industry as a thickening agent, but sold as a fiber supplement on super-market shelves in the U.S. under the brand name, Benefiber.

Maybe they can Olestra like they tried in potato chips until people had unintended gastric explosions from it. LOL.
Does that include the cells of aborted fetuses? I thought they were in ALL Pepsi products.
Based on 1,560 patient discussions on healthcare websites and blogs
“Yellow dextrins are used as water-soluble glues in remoistable envelope adhesives and paper tubes... Wikipedia.
I’m glued to Pepsi and my Pepsi’s glued to me.
>Maybe they can Olestra like they tried in potato chips until people had unintended gastric explosions from it. LOL.
I can vouch for that...lol
Pepsi has long been the left-wing Cola Company. I’ll bet the politicians will jump on this one. And the Head Baby Killer at the Department of Health will love it, too, I imagine.
Then, twenty years later, they’ll suddenly discover, oops, this wasn’t such a good idea after all.
Everyone knows that high fructose corn syrup is bad for you, but nothing will be done about it as long as it brings in the money and the votes.
Bloomnuts won't allow that in New Yawk!
Don't forget Mooch Rear:
You say that like it's a bad thing.
No way for the Madison Avenue ad boys to spin that one into a positive attribute.
Sit back and enjoy the oily orange anal leakage.
What they need is a carb-blocking soda....a fat-blocking soda will do diddley squat.
Not so long ago Pepsi was using aborted fetuses to produce novel taste experiences. Pepsi RAW was one of the products, I think.
What if the fat in fast food isn’t the problem? What if Pepsi is the problem?
What if the french fries is the problem?
What if the breading is the problem?
What if the chocolate shake is the problem?
What if the "buns" is the problem?
What if the Pepsi (and its eight tablespoons of sugar) is the problem?
’ Olestra’ SCHMOESTRA....This is more important....recently Viagra makers sought Pepsico’s help in developing a better delivery system for it’s pill. Pepsi mixed it with a new liquid....any one of you FEEPERS care to tell us the name of the new concoction....first one to get it right gets a Chicken Dinner first prize...GO...
I believe the warning labels referred to "anal leakage."
I did some network work for a competitor in the snack food industry, when the news "leaked out," this competitor put on their packaging "Contains NO Olestra," where to 'O' in "Olestra" was made to look like a toilet seat, and the 'o' in "No," was made to look like a roll of toilet paper!
I stole the following from a movie-
What kind of marketing braniac puts anal leakage on their product?! How can they even sell that crap?
Anyways, I can’t believe they are testing this in Japan, they are pretty little over there, I didn’t think obesity was a problem there.
The taste of Pepsi sucks. Just sayin’.
This sounds weird.
Why not mix Coke with Metamucil. Same idea?
Fabulous. Another new way to be poisoned. Don’t you just love it when our food and drink is loaded up with chemicals and untried “natural” substances?
Japanese women are very concerned about not gaining weight. I have hosted a number of Japanese college students in our home in the past 8 years, and it is common for them to restrict their food intake and put off eating. I only had one who liked to exercise a lot to keep within weight. The others just preferred to eat very little. I only had one who was overweight, and one who knew she would gain weight here, but didn’t care because she really liked American food and figured she would lose it when she went home.
Japanese women may be petite, but it’s as much training as nature, as far as I can tell. Also, I have read that they are selling bra sizes over there that they have never had to carry before because they are starting to eat more and gain weight.
In short, they’d love a way to keep their weight down without having to eat less and exercise more.
The best tasting sodas still use actual real sugar - like they all used to - instead of high fructose corn syrup. I still get coke with sugar around hannukah, when they produce special batches. Pepsi now also as a version of regular soda with real sugar too.
Suprised konjac isn’t helping keep their weight down.
There are those who get systemic symptoms traceable to the ingestion of high fructose corn syrup.
Maybe they do it at home, but nobody seems to have brought dietary supplements to my house, that I know of.
