What is Manuka Honey and why is it special?
Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand’s remote, pollution free forests and is renowned for its unique flavour and health benefits. The bees feed off the Manuka plant (Leptospermum scoparium) which has delicate pink or white flowers and is native to New Zealand.
While we have been aware for centuries of the antibacterial properties of all types of honey, laboratory studies have shown that Manuka Honey has an especially remarkable antibacterial property, found only in the Leptospermum species. This has been called the Unique Manuka Factor or UMF®. UMF® Manuka Honey is totally natural and has been enjoyed for its own unique flavour for many years.
Why UMF® Manuka Honey?
Laboratory studies have shown that UMF® Manuka Honey is effective against a wide range of bacteria.
UMF® stands for ‘Unique Manuka Factor’, a measure of the unique type of antibacterial activity which is naturally present at varying levels in honey made from the nectar of the Manuka bush, native to New Zealand.
UMF® Manuka Honey, the type of Manuka Honey which has a high enough level of this antibacterial property to warrant carrying the UMF® trademark, is highly sought-after.
UMF® is the registered name and trademark of AMHA (Active Manuka Honey Association) and can be used only by licensed users who meet set criteria which includes the monitoring and auditing of honey quality. The New Zealand honey industry (AMHA) has registered UMF® as a trademark to ensure the activity of Manuka Honey cannot be misrepresented.
