Loop is one of the most popular brands of nicotine pouches on the market today. Loop stands out with its unique and revolutionary flavors and flavor combinations in a market dominated by various mint flavors.
Loop is a relatively new brand of nicotine pouches but has still managed to build a strong reputation for itself. In this article, we take a closer look at this popular brand and its products in detail.
About Loop nicotine pouches: background and history
Loop was founded by Another Snus Factory Stockholm AB, based in Stockholm. Another Snus Factory was founded in 2019 with the ambition of doing things differently. In 2021, the company launched its second brand, Tribute +47, which is a tobacco snus inspired by Norway. The Loop brand, on the other hand, only produces white, tobacco-free nicotine pouches.
To quote themselves:
“We create amazing products and inspiring brands with three guiding principles, to do things we feel proud of, always try to do what we think is right, and to enjoy the ride.”
Another Snus factory is a newcomer in the snus and nicotine pouch market, challenging big and old companies such as Swedish Match, Skruf, and British American Tobacco, but despite this, they have managed to take market share and do very well in the nicotine pouch market, especially with Loop.
Loop was launched in 2020 and therefore has a relatively short history. They have nonetheless managed to do a lot and have launched many products and become a natural choice for many.
Loop manufactures its nicotine pouches in its factory in Kungsängen.
Loop Nicotine Strength
Loop nicotine pouches come in three different nicotine strengths, ranging from 2 to 4 on a scale of four. Different manufacturers use different systems to indicate strength. The most common is to use a scale with “dots” from one to four or one to five. Instead of dots, Loop uses numbers and a scale of 1 to 4.
The strength system represents the following nicotine amounts:
1: No nicotine pouch in the range
2: 6.75mg per pouch (mini) 10 mg/g (slim)
3: 9 mg per pouch (slim)
4: 20 mg/g (slim)
Note that some of the nicotine strengths are presented in mg/g and others in nicotine per pouch, which are not the same thing. This is because a slim-prilla has a weight of 0.625 grams.
At present, Loop only produces its Extra Strong nicotine pouches with a four on the scale in slim format. Also, they have no sort in their range that has a strength of 1. Previously, Loop had a slim pouch with a nicotine strength of 2 but today only in mini format.
Loop has developed Instant Rush technology that they use for all nicotine pouches they produce. InstantRush TM technology provides an immediate nicotine release that is also designed to give a lasting effect.
What does Loop nicotine pouches contain?
Most nicotine pouches on the market have relatively similar ingredients. The main component is always plant fiber, along with nicotine, flavors, and sweeteners. In addition to this, a few other ingredients are used to give the pouches the right properties and ideal shelf life. The difference between different manufacturers tends to primarily be in how they are developed, their format, and some differences in the amount used.
Overall, the ingredients are very similar, although there may be some differences. Both in ingredients but mainly in how they are combined and how much of each ingredient is used. The ingredients list may vary slightly depending on the flavor but the ingredients list is the same for all Loop nicotine pouches.
As an example, the ingredients list for Loop Jalapeno Lime Strong is as follows:
Ingredients: Fiber, water, nicotine, flavors, sweeteners (E968, E950), acidity regulators (E500, E330), moisture preservatives (E401), anti-caking agents (E551), sodium chloride, preservatives (E202).
