5Reasons for Moisture Measurement in Tobacco Quality ControlFinal product moistureImproved ProcessingDry for storage (no rot)Wet for handling/cutting (won’t crumble)Flavoring ControlFlavors are based on %dry weight.Use %moisture to correct weigh belt.
6Tobacco Moisture Is Critical In All Phases Of Processing Moisture impacts smoking quality, flavor, burn, fill, waste, and machine operation from green leaf threshing to primary processing.Each operation such as drying, re-moisturizing, rolling, cutting, and conditioning have an optimum moisture level to maximize efficiency.
