Title (EN) FIRE-CURED TOBACCO EXTRACT AND TOBACCO PRODUCTS MADE THEREFROM
(FR) EXTRAIT DE TABAC SÉCHÉ AU FEU ET PRODUITS DU TABAC FABRIQUÉS AVEC CELUI-CI
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a tobacco product including a flavorful tobacco composition in the form of an extract of a fire-cured tobacco material. Exemplary tobacco products include smoking articles, smokeless tobacco compositions, and aerosol-generating devices that do not burn tobacco. The invention also provides a process for preparing a smokeless tobacco composition, the method including: mixing a fire-cured tobacco material having a first benzo[a]pyrene concentration with water to produce an aqueous slurry; maintaining the slurry for a time and at a temperature sufficient to form a fire-cured tobacco extract, the aqueous fire-cured tobacco extract exhibiting a second benzo[a]pyrene concentration lower than the first benzo[a]pyrene concentration; separating the aqueous fire-cured tobacco extract from a residual pulp material, and mixing the aqueous fire-cured tobacco extract with a tobacco or non-tobacco plant material to form a smokeless tobacco composition.
(FR) L'invention concerne un produit du tabac qui comprend une composition à base de tabac parfumé sous la forme d'un extrait d'un matériau de tabac séché au feu. Des produits du tabac donnés à titre d'exemples comprennent des articles à fumer, des compositions à base de tabac sans fumée et des dispositifs de génération d'aérosol qui ne brûlent pas le tabac. L'invention concerne également un procédé de préparation d'une composition à base de tabac sans fumée, le procédé consistant : à mélanger un matériau de tabac séché au feu ayant une première concentration en benzo[a]pyrène avec de l'eau pour obtenir une suspension aqueuse; à maintenir la suspension pendant un laps de temps et à une température suffisants pour former un extrait de tabac séché au feu, l'extrait aqueux de tabac séché au feu présentant une seconde concentration en benzo[a]pyrène inférieure à la première concentration en benzo[a]pyrène; à séparer l'extrait aqueux de tabac séché au feu d'un matériau pâteux résiduel et à mélanger l'extrait aqueux de tabac séché au feu avec un matériau à base de plante de tabac ou sans tabac pour former une composition à base de tabac sans fumée.
