What is Snus?

Here you will find a thorough description on what snus is. Enjoy.

Snus also known as nicotine pouches is a form of smokeless, moist tobacco that is usually placed under the upper lip. It originated in Sweden and has been used for centuries. Unlike some other forms of smokeless tobacco, snus is pasteurized during manufacturing, which means it undergoes a heat treatment process that reduces the levels of harmful substances found in the product.

Nicotine pouches are available in small pouches, which users can form into a small ball or pad before placing it in their mouth. It comes in various flavors, including mint, wintergreen, and traditional herbal flavors.

One of the key distinctions of snus is that it is not fermented like many other forms of smokeless tobacco, which can lead to higher levels of nitrosamines, potentially harmful compounds. This contributes to the perception that snus may be less harmful than other forms of smokeless tobacco.

It's important to note, however, that while snus is considered by some to be a potentially less harmful alternative to smoking or other forms of tobacco use, it is not entirely risk-free. It still contains nicotine, which is addictive, and may carry some health risks, particularly for people with certain medical conditions.

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, snus is more popular in Scandinavia and some other parts of Europe, and it is not as widely used or well-known in many other parts of the world. Please verify with up-to-date sources if there have been any significant changes or developments regarding snus after September 2021.
