    Pasteurized Dip???

    Hello all,

    I haven't really been to the site in a couple years, but it still seems to be running strong. I'm still snusing and haven't touched a cigarette in years (big thanks to this site for getting me off cigs). Any ways, I was at work yesterday and was talking to a co worker about snus. We were discussing relative safety of it compared to cigarettes and dip. My co worker mentioned that his brother uses a pasteurized dip called Seneca. He said the product is made in america by the Lake Erie Tobaccoo company and is sold mainly online. I did a quick internet search and found their website: http://www.senecadistributionsllc.com/about-us.aspx.
    It states on the site "Seneca Distributions LLC not only distributes Seneca brand cigarettes and cigars, but also offers smokeless tobacco products such as our premium moist snuff. We use an exclusive, proprietary process to pasteurize our products that is unique to the United States moist snuff market. This process decreases the levels of TSNAs (tobacco specific nitrosamines), increases the flavor and shelf life, and allows us to guarantee the freshness of our product.
    I find this very interesting, as I do occasionally enjoy dip, but try to use it sparingly compared to snus. Has anyone heard about this product, seen any studies on the product or tried it? Love to hear opinions on this.

    Thanks

    This is what Canadians refer to as "rez" smokes. It's the cheap tobacco they sell on the reserves around where I live. The cigs are harsh and last time I tried the dip it was pretty unpleasant in both taste and quality.

    As for the TSNA claims I highly doubt it's true otherwise they'd probably sell it at other stores off the reserve.

    But who the heck knows.

        Where is the info on it being pasteurized. I can't seem to find it which makes me leery.

        You would think the processing on a budget dip would be the cheapest and least exacting

        If you track down the info throw up the link to it

          All I have found is the link above. It says at the bottom of the page that "We use an exclusive, proprietary process to pasteurize our products that is unique to the United States moist snuff market." According to my co worker it also states that its pasteurized on the tins.

          Not sure whats the deal with this stuff. I wonder if its still fire cured then pasteurized. Someone told me that timberwolf may be pasteurized as well, but i'm not sure.

              I've used Seneca products in the past. As far as pasteurized - NOT!

              There tobacco products, IMO, are a cross between pipe and cigar tobacco... very harsh.

              Gas stations and convience stores here in Western PA sell their products. There oral tobacco products are no where near the quality of real Swedish pasteurized tobacco. If I were to guess, their proprietary process is more marketing than anything else. JMO...

                That sounds about right for reservation budget tobacco

                Next time I am in PA I'll have to pick a can up if I can find it.....just to see what it is about

                That said........my expectations will not be set real high.......but I'll try most things once

                :boxing:

                  Tried a tin of their natural and rum flavored. It was pretty nasty. It just tasted like chemicals, couldn't really taste the tobacco. I think I may try to make a long cut snus using squeezyjohn's crock pot recipe. Anywho-this stuff was not worth it.
