This Snus comes originally in dark bags and moist surface. This ready-packed portions began in the 1970s and became widespread leading to development of the Original Portion. The tobacco is packed into pouches and moistened during manufacturing. The original portions deliver instant flavor and a release of nicotine when placed under the lip, similar to loose snus.
The White Portion snus was launched in 1998 by the Swedish Match. During manufacturing the pouch has no moisture hence it gives less drip. The portions are made of tobacco but the surface is dry for less salivation and long lasting flavor release and nicotine. When compared with other regular portions, white portion tend to last longer.
All White Portion
All white portion comprises of cellulose and very low tobacco proportions ground together. The proportions of tobacco are much lower as compared to traditional snus. The all-white pouch and low quantities of tobacco helps in making the portions whiter than normal white portion. The all white portion is very dry and this means that it takes some few seconds to feel the nicotine effect and taste.
