Mānuka Honey

Mānuka honey is recognised for its unique health properties of antiviral and anti-bacterial non-peroxide activity (NPA). NPA is calculated based on the concentration of methylglyoxal (MGO) in the honey.

MGO is a naturally occurring compound in honey that has a direct correlation to the NPA level of Mānuka Honey. Therefore the MGO concentration level in Mānuka honey relates to its strength and potency, and is an accurate and reliable measure of the anti–bacterial effect. The higher the level of MGO, the greater the health benefit and anti-bacterial properties.

Mānuka Honey is also uniquely delicious! The honey is usually a little darker in colour, but there can be variance in the colour. It has a thicker more concentrated consistency in texture than other honeys, with a distinct flavour, that is of medium sweetness.
