I believe that it's removed, or are least mostly removed, whereas the American stuff isn't. I know of an instance where an American shop recommended the Swedish snus over the American snus for that very reason - and the shop sold both.

   The Swedish government has funded countless studies to 'prove' that snus causes cancer to justify tax increases on it - they have found no proof of it doing so (and instead tax tobacco in general). Sweden has roughly twice the population of Denmark, and half the amount of annual cases of oral cancer. Whilst it's not healthy (it can cause other issues than cancer, it does contain nicotine after all, and the Ph may disrupt digestion and cause damage to the oral flora), it's not something that will kill an otherwise healthy person - it's way better than smoking.

Snus is snuff. Snus is the Swedish word for snuff. But whereas snuff is taken up the nose, snus is placed under the upper lip.

   Snus is specifically the 'Swedish' type of orally applied tobacco, whereas the word snuff refers to what we'd call 'luktsnus' ('smelling snus'). So when referring to Swedish snuff in English conversation, the word snus is correct - if you say 'snuff' to a Swede they will think of luktsnus, or illegal films.
