Top best answers to the question «Where does the weight of tobacco come from»
- Tobacco only makes up about half the weight of each cigarette. The rest is add-ons. About 30% of the weight comes from reconstituted tobacco. This is derived from a mixture of stripped stems, tobacco swept from the factory floor, and reclaimed and returned cigarettes. These are all mixed into a vat, beat up and extracted like a tea bag.
