Dissolvable Tobacco Products

Dissolvable tobacco products are finely milled tobacco held together with food-grade binders.

General Information on Dissolvable Tobacco Products

In 2009, Camel introduced a line of dissolvable products which included “strips, orbs, and sticks.” Ariva and Stonewall have also produced dissolvable products. There is concern that these products will be mistakenly ingested by children. Additionally although research on health effects of these products is limited, they do carry similar concerns to other smokeless tobacco products, such as risks of mouth and digestive cancers and nicotine addiction.
