Comvita Manuka Honey UMF 5+ 500g
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 activity, found only in the Leptospermum species.
UMF® stands for ‘Unique Manuka Factor’, a measure of the unique type of 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 activity to warrant carrying the UMF® trademark, is highly sought-after. UMF® is the registered name and trademark of UMFHA (Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association) and can be used only by licensed users who meet set criteria which includes the monitoring and auditing of honey quality.
