What Is Snus?

A little bit about Swedish Snus…

Swedish Snus is a traditional spitless oral tobacco product originating from Sweden in the 18th Century. This ground tobacco product is usually either sold loose (also known as ‘Lös’) or in portions that are either moistened (regular) or un-moistened (white). Either a pris (of lös) or a portion is placed behind the top lip against the gum, to absorb the nicotine.

Swedish Snus is steam pasteurised instead of fire cured, leaving the final product with a negligible amount of carcinogens, making it a much safer alternative to smoking, dipping or chewing.
