Manuka Honey

What is Manuka Honey?

Manuka honey is a unique type of honey, unlike normal honey has long been praised for its antibacterial properties. Its most notable scientifically studied attribute is its uniquely high levels of the anti-bacterial compound Methylglyoxal, which effect on wound management and healing.

Manuka trees, mainly distributed in virgin forests in remote areas of South Island and North Island of New Zealand. Manuka honey is also known as the national treasure of New Zealand because of its unique health and medicinal value

Although the scientific community has only begun to understand the value of Manuka in recent decades, the Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand, discovered that the Manuka tree is a miraculous medicinal plant centuries ago. New research suggests it could be used to treat various wounds and infections, skin ulcers, and eczema.

In 1981, after years of research, a professor of biochemistry found that Manuka honey contains antibacterial active substances. Methyglyoxal, which cannot be found in other types of honey except for Manuka honey. 

Afterwards, professors forwarded the research results to the Active Manuka Honey Association, which is composed of local Manuka honey producers, to promote and standardize Manuka honey benefits. To this end, the Active Manuka Honey Association set the standard for Manuka’s unique factor. Honey is graded according to its anti-bacterial strength (MGO – Methyglyoxal).

In order to standardize industry standards, the Active Manuka Honey Association has registered the trademark UMF. Only the manufacturers of Manuka honey that have passed the strict tests of the Association can obtain the certification issued by the Association and use the UMF trademark on packaging.
