A Lower-Cal Splenda Version on the Way!
Lighter 'n Fitter?
Dannon already rocks the yogurt world with their healthy and yummilicious line of "Light 'n Fit" yogurts and smoothies. So how can things get any better? Well, for starters, they're ditching Aspartame for Splenda (which we personally think is a major plus), but the best part is that the newly reformulated yogurt will drop from 90 calories per 6 oz. to just 60. Yowsa! Look out for the new containers to hit shelves in January. And, yes, it'll still be available in 12 great flavors.
First Fiber-Packed OJ Debuts
Leave it to Tropicana, the orange juice kings of the universe, to be the masterminds behind the world's first national orange juice with fiber. Tropicana Pure Premium Essentials(R) with Fiber will deliver a whopping 3 grams of fiber in every 8-oz. glass of OJ. That's as much fiber as is found in an actual orange. Remember, fiber isn't just for grandma anymore. Dieters, Weight Watchers followers, carb-counters and basically everyone else in the free world has hopped on that fiber bandwagon these days. It's good for you -- helping with digestion and keeping you feeling fuller longer. Woohoo!

Fish Really Is Brain Food
People have been saying it forever, but a new study shows that eating fish may help keep your brain younger and more alert. Dr. Martha Clare Morris of Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago is the study's lead author, and she thinks eating fish is a good thing. "It appears as if it's helping to keep the brain healthy," says Dr. Morris, continuing, "It does look like it's important as well in old age, or maybe just in general, for brain functioning." There is some speculation as to whether the fish itself protects the brain, or if eating fish causes people to knock fattier, less healthy foods like red meat from their diets.
