Description

Description

When it comes to producing and sourcing delicious manuka honey, The New Zealand Honey Co. knows a thing or two. The company has been operating since 2006 and at its heart are three generations of beekeepers.

One of the most important elements about manuka honey is that it is a natural product, made by honey bees in pristine and often very remote locations. This is also the case with manuka honey produced by the New Zealand Honey Co., which is based in New Zealand’s South Island.

The company has long-standing relationships with beekeepers in remote farming communities in the Central Otago area of New Zealand, which is a remote and highland area of outstanding natural beauty.

New Zealand Honey Co. Manuka Honey UMF 5+ comes with the all-important UMF label, and this is a signal to consumers that the company is a member of the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association (UMFHA) and that the honey has been tested in an independent laboratory.

The label UMF 5+ in fact tells the consumer many things about this monofloral manuka honey. Firstly, the tests that are carried out are used to confirm it is a pure manuka honey and in order to qualify the honey must contain certain naturally occurring elements as well as a certain level of pollen from the manuka tree.

This Manuka Honey UMF 5+ from the New Zealand Honey Co. has an MGO level of 83+, and again MGO is another element that needs to be present for honey to be considered genuine manuka honey.

For those who may have heard about the antibacterial activity of manuka honey, there is a relationship between the level of MGO and this activity. However, it is worth noting that these special characteristics of manuka honey are not solely due to the presence of MGO.

But beyond all the science around manuka honey, it is also a fact that manuka honey is an incredible and delicious natural product. Describing the taste of the honey is often difficult just because of its rich and complex taste. It has elements of both herbs and caramel and often has a rich texture a bit like a semi-runny fudge.

You can enjoy this UMF 5+ manuka honey in as many ways as you can imagine or then eat it straight from jar (although doctors advise against children below the age of one from eating honey). Once you get a taste of manuka honey, you will be left wanting more.
