without any of the fat being absorbed. As long as you drink some Pepsi Special along with it, that is. (Forget the fact that nobody needs to be eating pizza and a hamburger or a pizza and anything. Show some restraint, people.)
The miracle ingredient in the soda is Dextrin, a fat-blocking fiber that allegedly prevents the body from absorbing fat, though the US Food and Drug Administration has yet to buy these claims.
For those hoping that Pepsi Special will allow them to indulge with wild abandon, let me remind you of a little thing called Olestra, a food additive that offered consumers guilt-free, fat-free snack indulgence through items like the WOW! line of chips and snacks.
Named by Time magazine as one of the 50 Worst Inventions of all-time, Olestra may have given consumers fat-free chips but it also gave them cramps, gas and the dreaded "anal leakage".
