Snus is a smokeless tobacco product that is commonly made in Sweden and comes loose or in portions (pouches that resemble tiny tea bags). It is not legal in most of the EU, but is sold in Nordic countries. It is consumed by placing a pinch or the pouch between the gum and upper lip for around 30 minutes. Snus has a high nicotine absorption and delivery, but rather lower levels of harmful substances. The legally required message ‘This tobacco product is addictive and may damage your health’ is written on the snus box. The process of manufacturing and storage of snus contribute to its lower levels of toxins.

How to Store Snus
Snus rarely goes bad, but over a period of time, it starts drying and slowly losing its flavour. The best before date means that snus is best enjoyed before the date but it does not mean that it cannot be used later – just that it might not taste as good as before. Without freezing, it lasts for about 6 months before it starts going old. The best way to store it is freezing, as it will keep the moisture in the snus and prevent it from drying out and also preserves the flavour. It is best to leave the snus to thaw before using it if it is frozen.
