Swedish snus is a ground tobacco product dating from the late 1700s and is used orally. It is moist for easy use and contains four main ingredients. Selected tobaccos, water, salt, food approved humectants to preserve moisture and flavour additives which give each brand its unique character.
It is the manufacturing process and the high requirements of the selection of tobacco which makes the Swedish snus unique. Swedish snus is manufacture through a heat-treated process that ensures that micro organisms are neutralized, and that the snus stays fresh longer.
In Sweden, snus is regulated under the Swedish food legislation as a food product and therefore are the sanitation requirements the same as those used in food production. All additives that are used are approved as food additives.
The most usual way to consume snus is to place it beneath the upper lip, and keep it there for a time varying from a few minutes to several hours, according to taste. Swedish smokeless tobacco comprises loose-weight snus and portion-packed snus. Portion-packed snus is available in a range of flavours and portion sizes (Mini, Large and Maxi).
Loose-weight snus is a loose moist powder which can be portioned and rolled into a cylindrical shape with the fingertips. The final result is often referred to as a pris/pinch (of snuff) or prilla (slang for pris). To form your own loose-pouches require practice and patience. All loose-weight snuffers have their own high demands on shape, hardness and size. The taste and the scent are more powerful and clear than the portion-packed snus. Those who found their own loose-pouches are usually faithful to it under a long period of time.
The expiration dates of the Swedish snus are written in the Swedish date format. This sometimes leads to misunderstandings. We at BuySnus.com promise you that you will always get fresh snus directly from the manufacturer and if we get bad dates from the manufacturer we will not send them to you.
