PepsiCo’s Tropicana Products will begin shipping a fiber-enhanced orange juice next month, aiming the product primarily at baby boomers who are “worried about calories, cardiovascular health and their immune system,” not to mention the problem of getting older and just needing more fiber in their diets for all the usual reasons.
