What is Snus?

Made from tobacco leaves, traditional snus can be classified as a dry variant of snuff. Its production dates back to the 18th century, when people were able to buy Swedish snus. Unlike chewing tobacco, traditional snus is a Scandinavian tobacco product that is regulated differently in various countries.

These days, “snus” and “nicotine pouches” are often used to refer to tobacco-free white pouches in the UK. However, they are not the same. Traditional snus contains tobacco, while white snus and nicotine pouches do not. Since the rise of nicotine pouches in Sweden, tobacco use has decreased significantly.

Here at Haypp UK, we do not stock traditional snus, which contains tobacco. Join us as we delve into some of the different kinds of tobacco-free products you can purchase while you are in the UK.

Snus Strengths

Different brands categorise snus strengths differently and use various measuring systems. Here at Haypp, we categorise snus strength by nicotine content per pouch as follows:

While some brands offer snus with more than 20 mg of nicotine per pouch, Haypp carries a maximum of 20 mg per pouch to prioritise the well-being of our customers. Our dedication to providing an enjoyable experience ensures that we offer products that align with your best interests.

How to Calculate Snus Strengths 

At Haypp, we provide the nicotine content per pouch for easy reference. However, some brands may only display the nicotine content in mg per gram (mg/g) format. Here's how to calculate the nicotine content per pouch:

  1. 1. Determine the Weight of an Individual Pouch:
        Divide the total weight of the can by the number of pouches. This gives you the weight of an individual pouch.

  2. 2. Calculate the Nicotine Content per Pouch:
        Multiply the mg/g nicotine content by the weight of a pouch.

To illustrate our point, we can take the bestselling snus of 2024, Velo Ice Cool, as an example:

  • • Velo Ice Cool Total Weight: 14 g

  • • Number of Pouches: 20

  • • Nicotine Content (mg/g): 14.3


  • Weight of Individual Pouch = 14 g (Total Weight) / 20 (Number of Pouches) = 0.7 g/pouch

  • • Nicotine Content per Pouch = 14.3 mg/g (Nicotine Content) × 0.7 g (Weight of Individual Pouch) ≈ 10 mg/pouch

Tobacco-free Snus Pouch Sizes

Snus bags or nicotine bags come in different sizes: mini, slim, and normal. The normal pouches are the largest and widest available. Slim pouches are slightly narrower but contain the same amount of product as the normal pouches. For a more discreet option, you can choose slim or mini sizes. These small portions are easily hidden in the mouth.

For smokeless tobacco users, snus may offer a harm reduction potential compared to those who smoke cigarettes. Studies indicate a significant reduction in smoking-related mortality and a minimal reduction in life expectancy. Epidemiological studies also suggest a lower risk of stroke and heart disease associated with tobacco use.

Benefits of Snus 

The use of snus dates back centuries, and its popularity continues to grow due to its numerous advantages:

  • • Smoke and Tobacco-Free: Snus provides a smoke-free and tobacco-free alternative to traditional tobacco products. By eliminating the need for combustion, snus reduces exposure to harmful chemicals found in smoke. 

  • • Discreet and Hands-Free: Snus pouches are discreet and hands-free, allowing users to enjoy nicotine without the need for smoking or vaping devices. They can be used conveniently in various situations without drawing attention.

  • • Odourless: Unlike smoking, snus is odourless, making it ideal for use in environments where smoking is prohibited or frowned upon. Users can enjoy snus without leaving behind any lingering smells.

  • • Variety of Flavours: Snus comes in a wide range of flavours, catering to different preferences and tastes. From classic mint and citrus to more unique options like coffee and liquorice, there’s a flavour for everyone to enjoy.

Additionally, snus pouches can be consumed while eating or drinking, and because they are smokeless products, snus users can use them indoors without affecting others

Understanding Traditional Snus and Its Alternatives

This section explores the taste profiles and composition of different types of traditional Swedish snus and its alternatives.

Traditional Snus Taste

In general, traditional snus offers a robust tobacco flavour and a smoky aroma, particularly in original varieties. However, white snus lacks this smoky taste. The presence of smoke flavour in original snus makes it well-suited for blending with stronger flavours like mint and licorice.

For those who prefer to avoid the smoky taste, white snus can be mixed with various flavours to enhance its appeal. White snus stands out as the most versatile option for buyers, serving as a blank canvas ready to be flavoured according to individual preferences. Popular flavour options include melon, lime, blueberry, and apple.

Traditional Snus Pouches

Swedish snus pouches are crafted from tobacco leaves, water, and salt. Leading tobacco companies like Philip Morris International (PMI) and Swedish Match have played significant roles in both the development and promotion of snus pouches.

On the other hand, nicotine pouches are formulated with nicotine, water, sweeteners, flavourings, and other plant-based fibres. These pouches resemble mini tea bags and are available in various sizes, providing convenience and ease of use.

Types of Traditional Snus Portion 

When purchasing traditional snus, you'll find various portion options. Portions refer to the type and coarseness of the snus. Coarseness indicates how finely the ingredients are ground. Snus portions can be divided into three categories:

  1. 1. Loose snus (the oldest form of snus) 

  2. 2. Brown portions 

  3. 3. All brown portions 

Loose snus, the oldest form, comes in coarse, medium, and fine grinds. It can be moulded into any shape using hands or a moulding tool. Other types of snus are packaged in pouches for easier use. To use tobacco-free snus or nicotine pouches, place the pouch between your upper lip and gum and wait for it to work.  

To learn more about snus and its origins, read our detailed article, "What is Snus?".

Alternatives to Traditional Snus

While traditional snus remains a popular choice, several alternatives cater to individuals aiming to reduce tobacco consumption. Nicotine pouches provide a tobacco-free option, delivering nicotine without the associated risks. They are popular as they do not leave the teeth with a brown stain or tint. Available in various flavours and strengths, they offer versatility for users.

The Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) has made assessments regarding the health effects and risk reduction associated with the use of smokeless tobacco products like snus. The prevalence of white snus use varies across European countries, with notable usage in Sweden and Norway.

Electronic cigarettes offer another alternative. They mimic the smoking experience with fewer harmful chemicals, though long-term health effects are still under study.
