Brief History of Snus - Snus or Swedish snus is a smoke-free stimulant containing nicotine. Swedish snus consists of finely ground tobacco mixed with salt and water. Flavors such as bergamot oil, rose oil or licorice can be added. Swedish snus should not be confused with tobacco sentil or American Products fermented before manufacture.

Swedish snus is pasteurized in the heating process (without fermentation). Nicotine is absorbed from the mouth and distributed through the bloodstream, acting as a stimulant. Many people see moist snus as a healthier option than smoking tobacco. In Sweden today more men use puffs than smoke cigarettes.

The History How It Came About

Smoke-free Tobacco was first absorbed in the form of puffs, a habit brought to Sweden through the upper class French (the Swedish royal family was of French descent). Snus was first mentioned in Swedish official documents in 1637. Tobacco was first grown in Sweden on a larger scale in the late 1700s. The manufacture of snus became an art practiced by experts. This is one of the facts of the history of snus. 

The first recipes were invented at that time and most of them such as Göteborgs Rapé, Röda Lacket, General and Ettan still exist today. By the end of the 1800s, snus making was no longer considered an art and snus was produced using industrial methods. One of the tobacco manufacturers, Jacob Fredric Ljunglöf, is looking for methods to make suction production faster and more efficient. 

How Was It Done

Another fact of the history of snus is one of the things that he was dissatisfied with was the amount of time it took for the suction material to sweat before it started to run and release its flavor. He enlisted the help of a friend, Jacob Berzelius, who was a chemist. With the help of Berzelius, Ljunglöf began using methods involving ash dissolved from birch followed by rapid heating of tobacco. 

Through this method, preparation only takes a few days. Swedish snus fermentation was then no longer practiced. Snus Ljunglöf quickly became the market leader. It can still be purchased today under the name Ettan. Snus was originally taken in powder form and many people have switched to snus parts since its first successful launch in 1976. The use of snus among women has increased with the advent of snus parts.

How It Was Manufactured

Tobacco From many different parts of the world is used in Swedish snus. Without any exception it is dried through the air (tobacco that has been dried using smoke has been used before but has been discontinued due to poor health aspects). During manufacture, tobacco is mixed with water, salt, sodium carbonate and water. Flavors such as bergamot oil, rose oil, licorice or spices are also added. This is also other fact of the history of snus. 

The main difference between Swedish snus and other smoke-free tobacco products is that Swedish snus is not fermented.snus Fermented contains significantly higher levels of harmful nitrosamine than heated Swedish pasteurized snus. Swedish snus is regulated by the Swedish Food Act. Production is also regulated by quality requirements under the Swedish Food Act. 

In addition to mandatory laws, a leading manufacturer - Swedish Match - has developed a quality standard known as GothiaTek that imposes stricter requirements. Swedish Match is the current market leader with an estimated 85% of the Swedish snus market. And these are some facts about the brief history of snus.
