While every brand of nicotine pouch we carry is functionally the same; easy to use, always tobacco free, and made with the best quality ingredients and engineering, we believe that each brand has their own special nuances, just like you. By offering a wide array of top quality brands, we have a product for everyone- from seasoned nicotine pouch users to those who are looking to switch to a smoke-free nicotine experience. Are you looking to try nicotine pouches, but you aren’t sure which brand is right for you? With so many brands, flavors, and nicotine strengths, it can be difficult to find your perfect match. This article will introduce you to two of our top-selling brands, ZYN and VELO; where we will explore their similarities and differences to help find your perfect pouch.

A Simple & User-Friendly Nicotine Experience

ZYN and VELO nicotine pouches are tobacco-free, smokeless, stainless, and spitless. Both pouches are used in the same way, by placing a pouch between your upper lip and gums.  ZYN and VELO pouches are packaged in slim, lightweight, and childproof containers so you can enjoy a nicotine kick anywhere you go. ZYN pouches are manufactured by one of Sweden’s top manufacturers, Swedish Match, in both Kentucky and Sweden; the ZYN pouches sold on our site are specifically developed and manufactured for the US market. VELO pouches are manufactured through Reynolds American Inc. by Modoral manufacturing in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

ZYN vs VELO: Which Strengths and Flavors are Popular?

While both brands offer a wide selection of different flavors and nicotine strengths, the options offered vary from brand to brand. 10 different flavors are available in each brand, with both offering their versions of mint, spearmint, wintergreen, peppermint, citrus, coffee, and cinnamon. ZYN offers some more classic selections with smooth, chill, and menthol flavors; while the more adventurous user can rely on VELO’s fruity range of flavors with dragon fruit, citrus burst, and black cherry. ZYN nicotine pouches are available in 2 different strengths, 3 mg and 6 mg. VELO nicotine pouches have a wider variety of strengths, they are available in 2 mg, 4 mg, where the strongest VELO pouches come in around 7 mg per pouch. All ZYN cans come with 15 nicotine pouches. VELO circular cans contain 20 nicotine pouches and are available in all 3 strengths, while the oval tins contain 15 pouches and are only available in 2 mg and 4 mg strengths. A single ZYN pouch can be used for up to one hour while a single VELO pouch may be used for up to 30 minutes.

What Are The VELO And ZYN Ingredients?

One distinction that sets the brands apart is the forms of nicotine each pouch contains. ZYN's ingredients contain 100% tobacco-free nicotine salt. Nicotine salt is a naturally occurring form of nicotine that prevents the tobacco plant from oxidation; ZYN’s pharmaceutical-grade nicotine salt is more stable than other forms of nicotine that require protection from oxygen. This means that ZYN’s nicotine pouches are completely tobacco-free. VELO’s nicotine pouches are made with nicotine that is derived directly from the tobacco plant, meaning they are tobacco-leaf free products. 

All ZYN and VELO pouches are sugar-free and contain food-grade quality ingredients to stabilize and flavor the pouches:

  • All ZYN pouches contain: nicotine salt (nicotine bitartrate dihydrate), hydroxypropyl cellulose, micro crystalline cellulose, maltitol, gum arabic, sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, acesulfame K, and food-grade flavorings.
  • VELO pouches packaged in tins contain: nicotine derived from the tobacco plant, microcrystalline cellulose, water, salt, sucralose, citric acid, and artificial flavor.
  • VELO pouches packaged in cans contain: nicotine derived from the tobacco plant, maltitol, modified cellulose, sodium carbonates, acesulfame K, and artificial flavor.

ZYN or VELO- Who Chooses Which?

ZYN and VELO pouches are both quality crafted to provide you with a discreet, simple nicotine experience. If you are looking for a wide variety of classic flavors in a long-lasting pouch, ZYN’s nicotine pouches may be just right for you. ZYN’s pouches are perfect for the person who wants a completely tobacco-free, simple nicotine experience. If you like to explore a wide range of fruity, exotic flavors at a range of strengths from 2 mg, 4 mg, and 7 mg, VELO’s nicotine pouches might just be perfect for you. VELO nicotine pouches are perfect for the person with an adventurous palette; whether you like a chill experience with a low strength or you prefer the intensity of a stronger pouch, there’s a VELO flavor for you.
