Snus is traditionally sold loose and in metal cans. Only with increasing popularity in the 1970s were the now widely known pouches (bags) introduced. These simplify the transport and use of snus, because it does not have to be portioned with the fingers first. In this country this type of snus is known as portion snus, in the home country of Sweden they are called 'prilla' or simply 'portion'.
The snus market continues to evolve and in 2003 the White Portion was introduced for the first time. In this, the tobacco based content, is packed in dry pouches. Attention, with the White Portion there is a risk of confusion with the "All White" portion snus. The All White products contain nicotine, but no tobacco.
How does the White Portion, loose snus and Original Portion differ?
Loose snus uses ground tobacco leaves, which are packed in tins after mixing with water, salt and flavors moistened. The Original Portion, in contrast, is packaged in pouches that are slightly moistened after production.
In the White Portion, the manufacturing process is different, as the tobacco is packed in dry pouches, but the contents are slightly moist. Thus, it is ensured that the contained tobacco runs less when consumed. In the White Dry portion, both the pouches and the contents are even more dry.
The new snus varieties also include the All White Portion, where the nicotine is added to the pouches either in the form of salt or in liquid form. They are completely tobacco-free and there is less risk of discoloring teeth after years of use. These products are perfect for smoking cessation, especially for people for whom nicotine patches and co did not bring success.
What is the difference between White Portion and Chewing Tobacco?
It is often assumed that white portion snus and chewing tobacco are the same product, but this is not true. Both variants are sold in small sachets and the flavors and additional substances are also the same. The difference is, among other things, in the size of the tobacco leaves and in the application.
Chewing tobacco is larger tobacco leaves that are cut and packaged in pouches. The pouches are made of a harder material so that they can be chewed better and longer. In White Portion Snus, the pouches are very thin and are not chewed when consumed, but placed under the upper lip.
