What if you could eat a plate of French fries, loaded with calories, and not absorb the fat because of what you’re drinking.

Well, that’s exactly what PepsiCo is selling in Japan; and, so far, only in Japan.

It contains an additive called Dextrin, a fat-blocking fiber that is supposed to keep the body from absorbing fat and lower cholesterol levels. That’s a claim that the Food & Drug Administration has not yet bought.

But if it does, as a marketing tool, a Pepsi drink that blocks fat could be a winner.

“If you read some of the product claims, there’s one thing I saw that says you’ll be able to eat a piece of chocolate cake and it won’t be absorbed,” says Point Park University business professor Elaine Luther.
