Title (EN) TOBACCO CURING METHOD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE SÉCHAGE DU TABAC
Abstract:
(EN) A method of curing tobacco comprises drying a harvested tobacco plant in a controlled environment for a time sufficient to substantially prevent the formation of at least one nitrosamine. The tobacco is first subjected to the controlled environment while at least a majority of the tobacco is in a green state. The resulting cured tobacco usually has tobacco-specific nitrosamine (TSNA) levels which are undetectable and are similar to levels found in freshly harvested, green tobacco.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de séchage du tabac comprenant le séchage d'un plant de tabac cueilli dans un environnement contrôlé pendant suffisamment de temps de manière à essentiellement empêcher la formation d'au moins une nitrosamine. Le tabac est d'abord soumis à l'environnement contrôlé pendant qu'au moins une majorité du tabac est vert. Le tabac séché résultant comprend habituellement des taux de nitrosamines spécifiques au tabac (TSNA) qui ne sont pas détectables et sont similaires aux taux observés dans le tabac vert fraîchement cueilli.
