Snus is produced of air-dried tobaccos - all other ingredients that are a part of the production of snus are approved for foodstuff production.
Besides water and tobacco, which are the main ingredients in snus, salt is added as a flavour enhancer and sodium carbonate weakly basifies the snus and gives it its character.
Furthermore, moisture-retaining substances (polypropyleneglycol and/or glycerol) are added, so moisture is kept longer, especially once the packaging is opened.
To provide snus with its characteristic taste, a number of flavouring agents are added, either in form of powder, a solution of spirits or fruit oils. The flavouring agents used in snus are of a broad range and combined to balance scent and taste.
