​ What is the difference between nicotine pouches and snus?

Would you like to know what is the difference between nicotine pouches and snus? Similar in shape, nicotine pouches and snus are totally different products. NicoPouches explains why nicotine pouches and snus have nothing to do with each other.

Nicotine pouches were inspired by Swedish snus. Although they are consumed in the same way, they remain radically different in their composition. NicoPouches explains why nicotine pouches and snus have nothing in common.

​ Snus and Nicotine Pouches: why they are different

​ Snus, a Swedish specialty

Snus is a product made from dried and re-moistened tobacco leaves. Extremely popular in Sweden where it is manufactured, snus comes in the form of tobacco pouches to be placed under the lip, in contact with the gum. The nicotine present in the tobacco leaves is then diffused via the oral apparatus.

As with cigarettes, flavoured snus is still in the minority. Because of its manufacture and composition, snus has a pronounced taste of tobacco. Some manufacturers offer flavoured versions (mentholated for example), but they are rare.

Snus is sold only in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Switzerland. European Union regulations prohibit its distribution in other countries.

Nicotine pouches are an innovation in the fight against smoking.

Unlike snus, nicotine pouches contain no trace of tobacco. The nicotine in the pouches is crystallized so that you can consume nicotine without the inconvenience of tobacco products. The nicotine pouches are made from natural fibers and flavors.

Nicotine pouches are used in a similar way to snus. They are placed under the lip in contact with the gum. The nicotine and aromas are then diffused, for a period generally between twenty and forty-five minutes, depending on the brand and manufacturer.

The nicotine pouches have undeniable advantages

Nicotine pouches, which have recently appeared on the market, allow smokers to get away from cigarettes while continuing to benefit from nicotine intake. Resolutely modern, nicotine pouches are very discreet and can be used anywhere, whether you are indoors, in a professional context or in places where smoking is prohibited.

Moreover, nicotine pouches are sometimes called "All White", this whiteness is not only found in their color, but also in their effects. Nicotine pouches do not cause yellow stains on the teeth, which are characteristic of tobacco products.

There is therefore a major difference between snus and nicotine pouches: the latter do not contain tobacco, are used without combustion and give off neither smoke nor vapor. Thus, you are not exposed to the known side effects of cigarettes and other tobacco products.
