An ingredient is a substance added to the tobacco part of our product. The term 'ingredient' also applies to substances in any non-tobacco materials used to make our product, and which remains in the finished product after manufacture. Non-tobacco materials include the cigarette paper, the filter, the adhesive that seals the paper, and the ink that colours the paper that wraps around the filter.
Ingredients are used to give some brands and brand variants their own distinctive flavour and aroma, according to consumer preferences, and to maintain a consistent product quality.
In some brands and brand variants ingredients commonly used in food may be used in very small amounts to give each product a distinctive flavour characteristic or aroma. This enables us to provide a wide choice of brand variants, in line with consumer preferences.
Many governments regulate the ingredients which may be added to tobacco products and we comply fully with these regulations. In countries where no regulations exist, we make sure that we conform to similar standards. We employ a team of specialist scientists to assess the acceptability of all ingredients and materials used in our products.
In the EU it is defined as tobacco which has been cut or otherwise split, twisted or pressed into blocks and is capable of being smoked without further industrial processing. Smoking tobacco in which more than 25% by weight of the tobacco particles have a cut width of 1.5 millimetres shall be deemed to be fine cut tobacco for the rolling of cigarettes. Fine cut tobacco (or loose) tobacco is used with rolling papers or filter tubes to make a cigarette. It includes hand rolling tobacco and make your own brands.
This website is updated on an on-going basis. Information on other cigarettes and fine cut tobacco brands, cigar and snus products will be added soon.
