Title (EN) PROCESS FOR THE TREATMENT OF TOBACCO MATERIALS
(FR) PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT D"UN MATERIAU A BASE DE TABAC
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The use of unexpanded tobacco is not as cost effective as expanded tobacco. This disclosure relates to a process for the treatment of tobacco materials so as to enhance puffing. More particularly, the disclosure relates to a process that comprises contacting tobacco with an aqueous enzyme solution exhibiting cellulase activity, incubating the tobacco-enzyme mixture, and thereafter expanding the tobacco material. Tobacco materials treated in this manner exhibit an enhanced capability for expansion, thereby resulting in a significant increase in filling capacity when compared to untreated expanded tobacco.
(FR)L"utilisation de tabac non expanse n"est pas aussi couteuse que l"utilisation de tabac expanse. Ce procede de traitement de tabac augmente la bouffee. Plus particulierement, ce procede consiste a mettre en contact le tabac avec une solution aqueuse enzymatique ayant une activite de cellulase, a incuber le melange tabac-enzyme, puis a expanser le materiau a base de tabac. Les materiaux a base de tabac ainsi traites presentent une capacite d"expansion accrue, qui se traduit par une augmentation importante de la capacite de remplissage lorsqu"ils sont compares au tabac expanse non traite.
