Chemical characterization revealed alarmingly high levels of lead

An attempt has been made to estimate the moisture content, pH (and thus the free nicotine) and to quantify trace metals in a few smokeless tobacco products popular among the locals. These assessments have contributed towards establishing a toxicological fingerprint on the diverse arrays of such products freely available in the market currently.
