Description

Mānuka Honey UMF 20+

Mānuka honey is made from the nectar of an indigenous New Zealand shrub “Mānuka”, often referred to as ”Tea Tree” because early settlors made tea from its leaves. Its biological name is Leptospermum scoparium.

Some, but not all Mānuka honey has unique, exceptional anti-bacterial qualities which the UMF Honey Association has named “UMF”, meaning “Unique Mānuka Factor”. There are different strengths of UMF, indicated by the number following UMF. It is this factor that has made Mānuka honey with UMF an internationally recognised “Super Honey”. Read more about UMF on its page.

The purity and UMF strength of the honey is assessed by independent laboratories who report to the UMF Honey Association, which in turn advises honey processors of the qualities of the honey and grants permission for the UMF symbol to be used on labels. The batch number is recorded on the honey labels.

Mānuka UMF20+ is a medical grade with a high level of anti-bacterial activity. It is very effective or healing wounds and relieving gastronomic problems. More can be read in the information page “Health and Healing”. UMF grades 20+ and above are the rarest.

Mānuka honey is golden brown in colour and has a distinctive great taste.

Waitemata Honey is not pasteurised and is packed in BPA free plastic jars.
