Dextrin is a product of starch hydrolysis, a carbohydrate
having the same general molecular structure as starch but
with a smaller and less complex molecule with adhesive
properties. Its presence is necessary in Okinawan Detox

together. Without dextrin, Sap Sheets will not work. However,
keeping the amount of dextrin low in the foot pads is the
best way to achieve optimum results. Detox Pads with high

less benefit and poor results, although the smell of the
vinegar is less pungent.
