Modern research has proved that folk medication was on the right track.Detria’s products use pine resin.

The “pettu” obtained from pine was an invaluable emergency nutrient and filler for rye flour. “Pettu” is the inner bark (cambium and phloem layer) of pine trees and it has been found to contain a lot of dietary fibre and other substances with health benefits.
