Coke has introduced this version of its cola with fiber in Japan. The Wall Street Journal reports on the unlikely sounding "health drink," which has qualified as a "Foods for Specified Health Uses" FOSHU product, meaning it includes an ingredient that's been determined by the government to bestow a health benefit. In this case, that ingredient is indigestible dextrin—5 grams of it per ounce sugar- and calorie-free bottle. It's a source of dietary fiber, and as the company explained in a February press release touting the product's impending launch, "Drinking one Coca-Cola Plus per day with food will help suppress fat absorption and help moderate the levels of triglycerides in the blood after eating"—so long as you don't drink too much, which could cause "loose bowels," per a marketing VP for the company.

I love it just the way it is, chilled and fizzy, but my friends often mix it with Amaretto, white rum, or dark rum, just to add punch to the usual flavour. Personally, I think it is too sweet for regular drinking, but is perfect mixed with coconut rum, or used in an ice cream float.
If you see it, give it a try. It was a hit a few years ago, and I see it occasionally, but I hope it comes back for good. There you have it, a guide to the crazy world of Coca-Cola Japan.
