When it comes to storage, nicotine pouches have a big advantage over traditional tobacco snus: the storage.
Tobacco snus is a perishable item and therefore has a relatively short shelf life and must be stored properly to last as long as possible. Tobacco snus is recommended to be stored in the refrigerator for the best shelf life. If tobacco snus is not stored in the refrigerator, the snus tends to become dry and bad over time.
But for nicotine pouches – tobacco-free snus – the storage needs are completely different.
Tobacco-free snus is not a perishable item because it does not contain tobacco. Instead, nicotine pouches use plant fibers. Some are moistened, others are completely dry.
The result of this is a significantly longer shelf life than tobacco snus and you can store tobacco-free snus however you want.
Tobacco-free snus does not need to be stored in the refrigerator and can be stored as you please. You can simply store your pouches where you have space and opportunity without having to worry about the quality deteriorating. With tobacco snus, it can become problematic if you have many pouches at home as they can take up a large part of your refrigerator, limiting the space for food.
Velo says the following:
“Unlike traditional snus, nicotine pouches do not need to be stored in the refrigerator – thanks to the fact that the portions do not contain tobacco. So take your nicotine pouches with you wherever you want and don’t worry about the storage.”
Nicotine pouches have a shelf life of about 12 months and will still be usable after this. The only thing that will happen over time is that they will lose some of their flavor. And if it is a slightly moist nicotine pouch, it may become a bit drier – something that is not a major concern.
On the other hand, tobacco snus will change in taste and become very dry, making them unpleasant to use. If tobacco snus has been stored incorrectly and for too long, you may need to throw it away.
Since tobacco-free snus does not need to be stored in the refrigerator, you also do not need to worry about how the pouch is stored when you carry it with you. For example, there is no problem carrying the pouch in your pocket on a warm summer day or leaving it outdoors in the heat when you are abroad in a warm climate. Simply take the pouch with you wherever you want, whenever you want.
