FIELD: tobacco industry. SUBSTANCE: invention relates to methods concerning decreasing the content of nitrosamines, such as N'-nitrosonornicotine, 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone, N'-nitrosoanatabine and N'-nitrosoanabasine, and decreasing the level of alkaloids in tobacco. Methods involve mixing tobacco with a solvent (for example, with water and/or other compounds) for preparing a soluble fraction. A soluble fraction comprises the initial total level of tobacco-specific… CONTINUE READING
