Abstract (en)

A consumable for a smoking substitute device contains a liquid aerosol-forming substrate, wherein the substrate comprises an infusion of solid tobacco-derived material in aerosol-former solution, and the infusion is combined with a nicotine formulation. The nicotine formulation may comprise a nicotine salt, particularly nicotine lactate. The substrate is obtained by macerating solid tobacco-derived material in aerosol-former liquid to form an infusion of solid tobacco-derived material and combining the infusion with a nicotine formulation. The tobacco-derived solids are macerated for a time period sufficient for the infusion to undergo a required change in physical characteristics (such as colour or viscosity) or a required change in chemical characteristics (such as amount of nicotine release). Tobacco-derived solid may be visible in the substrate as an indicator that it is not a pharmaceutical product.
