If you are looking for a genuine active manuka honey with all its associated health benefits, Watson & Son 15+ Manuka Honey (25og) is a certified 15+ (NPA rating) manuka honey that comes from some virtually untouched parts of New Zealand’s North Island. Watson & Son has grown from a hobby in a garden shed to incorporate a network of more than 45 beekeepers throughout the North Island with 20,000 beehives and a state of the art extraction facility.
As a key supplier of medical grade manuka honey, strict control and quality procedures are the cornerstone of Watson & Son’s 15+ manuka honey. The honey goes through a certification process as part of quality control to verify that the honey has the bioactive property, which is referred to scientifically as non-peroxide activity (NPA), which makes manuka honey unique. This 15+ label means the honey has been certified by an independent laboratory as having the level stated.
If you are choosing a manuka honey for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties then the NPA level (non-peroxide activity) is an important marker as this is the compound responsible for the honey’s bioactive properties, which have been shown through research to help heal wounds, and with digestive as well as oral health. This 15+ manuka honey is a relatively potent manuka honey that can have therapeutic benefits.
Above all manuka honey is a delicious tasting honey with its unique earthy, herbal like flavour. Use it in your baking or just enjoy it as it comes from the jar.
Remember that children under the age of one should not eat honey.
