Nelson Honey produces its Manuka Honey 30+ (previously known as Manuka Honey Bronze) in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. The company is a family run business that now boasts four generations of beekeepers and 4,000 hives. The hives are located in bush and forest areas far away and free from any contaminants such as from agriculture.
Manuka honey has gained a large worldwide following because because of its unique characteristics and taste. Nelson Honey Manuka Honey 30+ has a distinct and delicious aroma and is 100% pure honey with no additives of any kind. Prior to packing the honey is warmed (not pasteurized though, which would destroy beneficial micro-organisms), filtered and then creamed.
Testing the honey plays an important role in confirming that it contains the naturally occurring element called methylglyoxal (MG or MGO) that makes the honey so sought after. Nelson Honey has every batch of its honey tested for a number of elements including the pollen count, which indicates the floral source of the honey, again important for determining that this is a genuine manuka honey.
Nelson Honey produces a range of manuka honeys that have a variety of different levels of MG. Manuka Honey 30+ means there is more than 30+ mg per kg of methylglyoxal and this is an excellent everyday honey. Remember that children and infants below the age of one are not recommended to eat honey.
