The word “Manuka” is a Maori word, native language of New Zealand. It Means New Zealand Woody
plants that often tend to form a dense scrub. The flowering plant is called Leptospermum
Scoparium.

 

Manuka Honey comes from the bees that pollinate Leptospermum Scoparium or the manuka bush
that predominantly grows in New Zealand. Other Species of this bush grow all over the world

Manuka Honey has an anti-bacterial property known as “Non –Peroxide Activity” Back in 1981 Dr Peter Molan, through scientific testing, confirmed that some Manuka honey had a naturally present, highly stable and very powerful anti-bacterial activity not found in other honeys.

The healing powers of honey are well documented over ages from ancient Egypt through great civilisations of Greece and Rome. We recently understand the science behind the specific properties in honey. Manuka honey is the queen of all honeys due to its Unique Manuka Factor (UMF).

UMF is a measure of the specific component in the honey called Methylglyoxyl, which is a strongly antibacterial and much higher in Manuka honey than other honeys.
