Goldenhills manuka honey is produced by a family-owned company in the Waikato region of New Zealand’s North Island. Their passion for honey, which started as a hobby with 15 hives, has become a medium-sized company with over 2,000 hives. The honey is certified by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association and is officially rated as UMF 10+.
The worldwide interest in manuka honey stems from its incredible and unique properties. However, to be certified as genuine manuka honey and use of the UMF trademark means that it has to be verified though independent testing, which ensures that the biological and chemical markers that prove its purity are present in the honey.
The testing involves identifying naturally occurring elements such as leptosperin and methylglyoxal, as well as other markers. The UMF Honey Association has been pioneering this research to help consumers identify genuine manuka honey.
Some research has shown the honey to have beneficial effects on the skin, digestion and is a good source of minerals and nutrients. Whether you just eat it from the jar or use it in baking or spread it on your breakfast toast, Goldenhills Manuka Honey 10+ makes a delicious and healthy choice.
Goldenhills has other UMF certified manuka honey in its range.
