Pepsi's new drink could fizzle away fat

'Pepsi Special' infused with fiber


Soda and healthy aren't exactly synonymous, but Pepsi-Cola in Japan is trying to change that with a new fiber-infused drink.

Dubbed the "Pepsi Special," the soft drink set to go on sale Tuesday contains dextrin, a fiber that distributors claim helps reduce fat levels in the body.

Odd-flavored drinks are common in Japan's $48 billion a year soft-drink market. Past Pepsi flavors include strawberry and milk, salty watermelon, and yogurt, to name a few.

There's no word on if Pepsi Special will be sold in the U.S.
