WHAT IS SNUS AND NICOTINE POUCHES? 

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Hey All 💓

Have you ever heard of SNUS or NICOTINE POUCHES before? I for one,definitely have NOT !! Recently, browsing around the net. I’ve just discovered and read about snus and nicotine pouches online.

Bare with me, I don’t have a clue what these items were but as I read on. It's sort of an alternative of nicotine consumption, replacing a smoker (cigarette or vapes) to a smokeless tobacco product which is usually placed behind your upper lip.

Fancy? Maybe ! For a girl who has no knowledge about it at all. All I knew about nicotine was it is in tobacco and via cigarettes and now-in-trend friend - VAPE

I don’t think Malaysian are exposed to these tobacco products yet but I am not ruling out the hardcore tobacco fans though. They might have known about these years ago. 

What is the difference between Snus and Nicotine Pouches ?

SNUS

Snus
is an oral smokeless tobacco product which is usually placed behind the upper lip, either in a loose form or in portioned sachets. which resemble miniature tea bags. 

Snus is ground air-cured tobacco, mixed with salt and water and then processed under strict quality and regulatory controls using a technique similar to pasteurisation.

Snus is distinctly different to other oral tobacco products due to the unique manufacturing process involved .It comes in flavors such as mint and wintergreen. You don’t burn it, and you don’t have to spit when you use it unlike chewing tobacco. 

Snus usually contains nicotine , which is highly addictive.

It's a very traditional product in Sweden. But do you know that In the European union, Snus is prohibited.

"The European Union banned the sale of snus in 1992, after a 1985 World Health Organization (WHO) study concluded that "oral use of snuffs of the types used in North America and western Europe is carcinogenic to humans", but a WHO committee on tobacco has also acknowledged the evidence is inconclusive regarding health."

NICOTINE POUCHES

Nicotine pouches are white pre-portioned pouches containing either tobacco derived nicotine or synthetic nicotine. It is like snus, but does not contain any tobacco leaf, dust, or stem.

The tobacco pouch snus is made from tobacco whereas nicotine pouches are made from natural fibers, chew base fillers and nicotine which has been extracted from the tobacco leaves.

A nicotine pouch can also be used anywhere while not exposing your surroundings to harmful second-hand smoke. As they come in an all-white format - the risk of discolouring teeth is also removed.

Nicotine pouches typically cost about as much as a pack of regular cigarettes. Unlike vaping products, they require no batteries and no accessory device.

Is it better to consume Snus or Nicotine Pouches than smoking a Cigarette or Vaping ?

No studies are available to determine if smokers would switch to Nicotine pouches or Snus or if they would continue to smoke and use nicotine pouches, resulting in dual use.

The main advantage of switching to nicotine pouches is that the same amount of nicotine can be consumed in a harm reduced way instead of absorbing the substance via the lungs as with vaporizers and cigarettes.

Although Nicotine pouches or Snus have the possibility of being a reduced risk product, there is NO independent testing of their constituents, exposure or biomarkers of effects

So what’s your prediction? Yes or Nay? Should Malaysian smokers switch or replace smoking by consuming Snus or Nicotine Pouches instead ? 

I understand that Nicotine is addictive and it's hard for smokers to quit smoking but at least with these products, you won't harm others with second hand smoking right?

Give it a thought, maybe ?!

Have a wonderful day and always be happy!!
