ZYN is one of the most popular brands of nicotine pouches on the market. It is also one of the first brands of nicotine pouches, first released in around 2016, first in the United States and later in Sweden and the rest of the world.
ZYN is also considered one of the best brands for nicotine pouches in terms of quality and offering. Of course, that doesn’t come as a surprise when it is manufactured by Swedish Match, the largest manufacturer of Swedish Snus in the world, and has been manufacturing snus for almost a century.
Now, ZYN is a relatively new product on the market and therefore, a lot of people are new to how this product works and its contents.
One of the most important consideration is of course its nutritional facts and ingredients. With that said, let’s have a closer look.
ZYN nicotine pouch ingredients
ZYN consists of a number of food-grade ingredients. Since ZYN is not meant to be ingested, it includes virtually no nutrients. Perhaps most importantly, Zyn contains less than 1 carbohydrate, which is closer to zero. In practice, this translates to traces of carbohydrates which means that the amount is negligible.
In terms of volume, the most important in resident is plant fiber, which make up the integrity and shape of the pouch. Specifically, ZYN uses Hydroxypropyl cellulose. The most important ingredient is of course nicotine, which is the ingredient that gives the pouches their effect in terms of buzz and sense of satisfaction. ZYN uses nicotine salt (Nicotine bitartrate dihydrate) for its pouches which is a pharmaceutical-grade version of the same nicotine salt that is found naturally in plants. The nicotine salt ZYN uses is the same nicotine salt form found in nature which makes it more stable than e-cigs, vaping, and liquids. The mentioned products use other forms of nicotine that must be artificially protected from oxygen.
Furthermore, ZYN pouches contain fillers, which are Micro crystalline cellulose, maltitol, and gum arabic.These ingredients are used to add bulk to each pouch. This ingredient is commonly found in chewing gum.
Furthermore, we have sweeteners in the form of Acesulfame K which is a sugar substitute that works as a flavor enhancer. And last but not least, we have pH adjusters in the form of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate which are minerals that are used in baked goods to help adjust pH levels.
