Medi-Bee UMF 10+ Active Manuka Honey is a high quality single flower honey that is also certified under the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) trademark so you know it authentic manuka honey.
The Medi-Bee brand of manuka honeys is produced by one of New Zealand’s most trusted and largest producers of manuka honey and other health products, Comvita. The company’s ethos is based on preserving the powerful healing intelligence of nature and harnessing products in a sustainable way.
Medi-Bee UMF 10+ Active Manuka Honey has the UMF or Unique Manuka Factor label, which is a trademark that has a set of testing guidelines that are followed when testing manuka honey for its purity.
Each batch of manuka honey varies and so buying a honey that has the UMF stamp of approval means you can be sure that what is said on the label is contained in the jar. There are currently over 38 manuka production companies that are licensed by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association to use the UMF label.
The UMF Honey Assocation has spent several years researching the secrets of manuka honey to establish a testing regime that is based on identifying the naturally occurring chemical markers in the honey that make it so unique. These markers must be present in order for the honey to be classed as authentic manuka honey.
The use of medical grade manuka honey has been increasing rapidly in the treatment of wounds, burns and ulcers and many pharmaceutical companies are making medical products for these health problems using medical grade manuka honey as the base ingredient.
This honey has a strong flavour and is also available in a larger size for those who just can’t get enough of the taste. Manuka honey is such a versatile natural product and natural sweetener but one of the best ways to savour this amazing gift of nature is to eat it straight out of the jar. Children below the age of one are not advised to eat honey.
