Product description:

The Manuka Tree, native to New Zealand, produces a popular caramel flavoured Manuka honey with unique and powerful antibacterial properties.

These antibacterial properties are measured by a registered standard called UMF (Unique Manuka Factor). BeesOnline UMF Manuka honey is verified and tested by an independent laboratory that grades our Manuka honey and gives it a UMF number (e.g. UMF 15+). The UMF number represents a certified measure of the 'non peroxide activity' of Manuka honey i.e. the specific antibacterial strength in the manuka honey.

Waikato University developed the UMF grading system and conducted extensive studies over a period of more than 15 years on UMF Manuka Honey’s antibacterial properties and applications. Research and clinical trials by Dr. Peter Molan from Waikato University prove the efficacy of UMF Manuka Honey. UMF Manuka has been found to be effective against a wide range of bacteria including:
helicobacter pylori  • staphylococcus aureus and escherichia colistreptococcus pyogenes

It can be taken 1 hr before meals on toast or bread or on its own by the spoonful. It can also be used in tea or coffee.

Price: $32.50

(All prices are in New Zealand Dollars)
