What benefits do I get from Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey has proven antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits when used or applied topically to the skin.
Would Manuka honey go bad?
Honey has a very long life and doesn’t really ‘expire’ anytime soon. Stored properly and at room temperature, honey can last for several years. Especially when it is pure honey, such as our premium honey products.
Is Manuka honey expensive?
It does tend to be more expensive than other kinds of honey due to its unique nutritional properties and rarity. The testing process is far more stringent to ensure the authenticity, purity and the quality of the product. Unfortunately making the best is not usually conducive to making the cheapest. For our products, we promise you get what you pay for.
What is the scientific definition of Manuka honey?
An extensive industry consultation was performed prior to the end of 2017 and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) made its decision on the scientific definition of Manuka honey. It states that four chemical markers from nectar and one DNA marker from Manuka pollen must be at a certain level to meet overseas export requirements. Rules were to apply from February 5th, 2018.
