How is snus different?

Snus is traditionally made from water, tobacco, flavorings and salt. In order to categorize snus, the following points are particularly examined:

  • Nicotine content (ranging from 0 mg / g to over 40 mg / g)
  • Snus strength (nicotine-free, normal, strong, very strong, extremely strong)
  • Nicotine pouch size (Large, Normal, Slim, Super Slim, Mini)
  • Format (loose snus, original portion, white portion, white dry portion)
  • Flavors (including mint, berries, menthol)

The strength of the snus does not only depend on the nicotine content, but also the moisture and the pH value determine how the effect of nicotine is perceived. The moisture content indicates how quickly the nicotine kick sets in. Moist snus is stronger because the nicotine enters the brain directly through the saliva.

The pH value indicates how much nicotine can be absorbed. The higher the pH, the more nicotine can be absorbed. Last but not least, the aromas can also contribute to how intense we experience the taste.
