Description

Description

Kiva is a brand of superfoods from New Zealand and their Raw Manuka Honey UMF 15+ certainly fits the bill.

Kiva raw Manuka honey is sourced from some of the most beautiful and remote places that New Zealand has to offer.

Kiva is committed to sourcing its Manuka honey from local farmers and beekeepers who are themselves committed to sustainable methods of production.

Kiva as a company also ensures that its superfoods are not further processed or added to in any way, and the products are tested independently.

This rigorous approach to ensuring the quality of its products is also a requirement for using the UMF Manuka honey label.

The UMF Label

The UMF label for Manuka honey is the result of years of work by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association of New Zealand.

In recent years, the organization has spent time, energy and resources into understanding the natural characteristics and makeup of Manuka honey and how to measure them.

One of the key results of this effort has been the ability to identify and measure certain naturally occurring markers and compounds in Manuka honey that are responsible for its world-famous antibacterial characteristics.

The aim of the independent tests therefore is to identify these markers and analyse their levels in the honey.

What is MGO?

One of these special compounds is methylglyoxal or MGO.

While MGO is not the only factor responsible for the special antibacterial properties of Manuka honey, it is nonetheless important.

In addition, there is a link between the antibacterial activity of the honey and its level of MGO.

Kiva Raw Manuka Honey UMF 15+ has an MGO level of 510+, which places it quite high in terms of its UMF rating and MGO level.

This is one reason why Manuka honey is so much more expensive than other types of honey.

(NB doctors advise that children below the age of one should not consume honey).
