Coca-Cola releases laxative version in Japan

Shoppers in Japan can now purchase, Coca-Cola Plus, a beverage that contains a laxative:

  • The laxative properties come from indigestible dextrin
  • The beverage and laxative are approved by the Japanese government
  • The product is aimed at consumers hoping to help their bodies absorb less fat from food
  • To (hopefully) differentiate the product, Coca-Cola Plus comes in a white bottle with black and red lettering
  • This version of Coca-Cola Plus is different from Diet Coke Plus, a beverage with added minerals and vitamins previously sold by the company in some countries
