Abstract (en)

Herbs or citrus are added to a tobacco flavoring agent containing ascorbic acid, a salt or isomer thereof, and a chlorophyll-containing material, thereby lowering the tar or nicotine content of tobacco smoke, softening the nicotine smell and unpleasant or irritating odors produced during smoking, and endowing the tobacco with an original flavor. This tobacco flavoring agent may be used by being deposited on the tips of cigarettes or other tobacco products, or by being mixed with shredded tobacco leaves.
