What is tobacco derived nicotine? 

Nicotine occurs naturally in the tobacco plant, which belongs to the potato plant family. Other species in this family also contain small amounts of nicotine, such as tomato and potato.

Nicotine is traditionally used as a stimulant. When tobacco derived nicotine pouches are used, nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream via the oral mucosa and is transferred to the brain’s reward system. Most people experience a general feeling of wellbeing, which has both a sedative and a stimulating effect.

Nicotine alone does not cause cancer. High doses can give rise to side effects such as palpitations, tremors and nausea, which are not unlike the body’s reactions to large amounts of coffee or other caffeine products.

The history of nicotine pouches

Everything started in the United States. The Americans demanded a new way of using nicotine - but in a completely new way, a product that did not smell or taste tobacco.

Therefore, Swedish Match began the process of developing a brand-new product. A pleasure product that was completely free of tobacco, but that would also provide a good nicotine delivery. The result was Swedish Match's first nicotine pouches - ZYN, completely white and tobacco-free nicotine pouches. ZYN pouches ingredients include tobacco-derived nicotine salt and other food-grade ingredients, such as pH adjusters, sweeteners, flavorings, fillers and stabilizers. ZYN nicotine pouches benefits include a smoke-free, spit-free and tobacco-free experience. ZYN is also available in a variety of strengths and flavors.

Velo pouches ingredients contain nicotine derived from the tobacco plant, water, sucralose, citric acid, microcrystalline cellulose, salt and artificial flavor. Velo portions are available in two flavors: mint and citrus.

In a very short period of time, the segment has grown extremely and today nicotine pouches are one of the most sought after products on the market. No longer only in the United States, but in the whole world.
