Chewing tobacco is a non-smoking tobacco product made from wet tobacco crushed to a certain fraction. Portion chewing tobacco is packed in small stick bags made of non-woven material for easy consumption. The product may contain flavorings in the composition, as well as have a different degree of strength.
Chewing tobacco is an alternative means of consuming nicotine. Its main differences from smoking tobacco are the possibility of obtaining nicotine saturation in places free from smoking, the absence of tobacco smell from the mouth and from clothing, and the reduction of harm to passive smokers due to the absence of tobacco smoke. At the same time, chewing tobacco can not be called a means of quitting smoking, since it causes no less nicotine dependence. The production of chewing tobacco in Sweden has its roots in the first half of the XVII century, its popularity in the country exceeds the interest in cigarettes.
Until recently, only imported Swedish chewing tobacco was present on the shelves in Russia. The production of chewing tobacco in Russia has become the most relevant after the entry into force of the State Standard for this type of tobacco products (GOST R 58553-2019 “Chewing tobacco”), developed by the All-Russian Research Institute of Tobacco, Shag and Tobacco Products. This standard regulates the list of permissible components used in the manufacture of chewing tobacco, establishes requirements for the production, storage and labeling of finished products. The appearance of a new state standard should have a positive impact on manufacturers, contribute to an increase in the number of production facilities in the legal field, improve the quality of the product, and ensure safety for consumers.
