Manuka Honey

Where To Buy Manuka Honey

 Manuka is no ordinary honey. Nutrient-dense and produced in New Zealand, Manuka honey is made from the nectar of the Manuka bush (leptospermum scoparium). Its tiny white manuka flowers, which grow in the unadulterated forests of New Zealand are pollinated by bees.

The unique health benefits of Manuka honey were unearthed in 1981. Dr. Peter Nolan of New Zealand’s University of Waikato was the pioneer, who was immersed in exploring the flavourful honey’s properties for the rest of his life.

Raw organic manuka honey – in its pure, certified form – offers not only the hydrogen peroxide activity but also high levels of methylglyoxal (MG).

The world’s best Manuka honey is certified with the quality mark, UMF®.  This stands for ‘Unique Manuka Factor’. Only honey that has met the stringent quality standards of the Unique Manuka Honey Association is allowed to wear this mark. 

These quality standards ensure that the honey has been individually tested and packed. The UMF rating, which means Unique Manuka Factor, guarantees the presence of unique signature compounds characteristic of this honey, which ensures purity and quality and the honey is certified manuka.
