Details

 

Did you know that Honey is one of the few foods known to have an eternal shelf life? Not only is honey one of the most popular and oldest sweeteners around, it also offers a range of health benefits like improving your energy and overall well-being!

 
 

Manuka is a monofloral honey produced from the nectar of the New Zealand Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium). This unique medicinal honey has antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

To date, Manuka honey is the only known type of honey where its antibacterial properties remain effectively intact even upon contact with enzymes in our saliva, stomach and other body fluids.

 
 
 

Relieve
digestive issues

Manuka Honey helps reduce reflux and maintain healthy digestive system.

Enhance
sleep quality

Manuka Honey slowly releases glycogen needed for essential bodily functions
during sleep.

Improve skin
tone and texture

Manuka Honey’s antibacterial properties target bacteria that cause acne outbreaks, moisturising skin to aid rejuvenation.

Improve
dental health

Manuka Honey attacks harmful oral bacteria associated with plague formation, gum inflammation and
tooth decay.

Immune
booster

Manuka Honey is full of polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radical damage, known to ward
off infections.

Beauty
treatment

Honey naturally absorbs moisture from the air, making it an ideal cosmetic ingredient for hair and skin. It traps and seals in moisture, leaving hair healthy and glossy, and skin soft, hydrated and supple.

 
 
 

Finding the right Manuka Honey is more challenging than you think! You have to pay attention to the grading systems, and the various grades available, along with other indicators of quality. How you plan to use the honey will impact your choice of grade!

 

Manuka Honey Grades & Systems

 

There are several grading systems used to compare Manuka Honey brands. The most powerful are the ones that consider the non-peroxide activity (NPA). They are UMF and MGO.

 

What does and stands for?

 

UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor, a quality mark of assurance indicating that the batch of honey has been independently tested for its purity and quality.

 

The UMF is determined by levels of three compounds found naturally in Manuka Honey:

 

Leptosperin
nectar from the
manuka bush

DHA
Dihydroxyacetone,
a unique
carbohydrate
metabolites

Methylglyoxal
an antibacterial
component
 

MGO, short for methylglyoxal, is one of the chemical markers that uses MGO content as the basis of Manuka Honey grading system. The UMF grade reflects the concentration of MGO in the honey. The higher the concentration of MGO, the stronger the antibiotic effect is. The higher the UMF grade, the greater the presence of the unique Manuka honey attributes.

 
 
< 10: For non-medicinal and
regular use
10 - 15: For overall maintenance
and improve immunity
>15: Supports natural healing
and good bacterial balance
>20: Contains superior levels
of phenols that are
highly therapeutic

Manuka Honey is pricier than most regular honey; therefore you’ll want to ensure that you are getting the most for your money!

 

 
The best way to eat Manuka Honey is raw and directly from the spoon where you’ll get to reap all the benefits.


 
The healing properties of Manuka Honey may react with the metallic surface of metal spoon; thus it is best to use a wooden, ceramic or plastic spoon.


 
The heat will sterilize the honey, stripping off its antimicrobial properties.


 
If you’re mixing Manuka honey into a drink, ensure that the water is not above 35°C.


 
The underdeveloped digestive and immune system of young infants may suffer from tummy upset or allergic reaction from the botulinum spores, a type of bacteria (Clostridium botulinum) that occurs naturally in honey, thus found in all honey products.


 
People who are allergic to honey or bee products should also avoid Manuka Honey.


 
 

Depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees gather nectar, honey differs significantly in

 
Texture
Aroma
Colour
Flavour
 

Lighter coloured honeys are mild in flavour while darker coloured honeys are usually more intense.

 
 

There are more than 300 varieties of honey available in the market, each with their own nutritional benefit and usage. All honey types can be divided into 2 general groups –

 
Polyfloral Honey
Produced by honey bees
using nectar from many
different flower sources
Monofloral Honey
Produced from the
nectar of one flower
species
 

Some flower sources include:

 
 

Most honey aficionados prefer monofloral honeys and seek out specific honey varieties for their associated medicinal properties. Some of the popular monofloral honeys are:

 
Dark cream to dark brown colour,
with a full-bodied earthy taste
Common natural healing agent
Used for centuries as a topical
antibiotic on wounds and acne
Can also be used for sore throats,
colds, and other common
ailments due to these properties
Light-coloured or even clear,
with a mild taste containing
hints of vanilla
One of the purest tasting honey
available
Contains flavonoids and phenolic
that acts as antioxidants
Dark brown with a full, robust
flavor
Not as sweet and tastes similar
to molasses, best used in making
barbecue sauce and baking
Higher concentrations of
macronutrients, trace elements
and antioxidants compounds
 
 
Honey bees have five eyes
Honey bees never sleep!

About 4 million flowers must be visited in order to produce 1kg of honey
Honeybees stroke their wings 11,400 times per minute. That is how they buzz so loudly

For centuries, honey was considered sacred due to its sweet properties as well as its rarity.
The earliest record of honey collecting is an 8,000-year-old cave painting in Spain’s Arana Caves.

Ancient Egyptians used honey to embalm their dead. They also packed pots of honey in tombs for people to carry into the afterlife.
Some say the word “Honeymoon” comes from an old tradition of giving brides and grooms a month’s supply of mead in the hope that the new couple produce a child within a year. Honey is the main ingredient in mead (a.k.a. honey wine).
