Smokeless tobacco label covers an extensive range of tobacco products that are not burned and smoked. Instead, the tobacco leaves are processed and used through a variety of other methods, including sniffing, chewing and placing between the teeth and gums.
Chewing tobacco is available in a number of varieties, each with their own unique properties. ‘Loose leaf’ chewing tobacco includes shredded leaves with a sticky texture as a result of added sweeteners.
Other types include ‘plug’ chewing tobacco, which usually comes unsweetened. ‘Twist’ chewing tobacco comes in a rope-like twist, while ‘chew bags’ are small portions of chewing tobacco contained within a small bag.
