Manuka Honey 

 

 

🐝🌿Mānuka Honey is highly valued by the consumer and those that are licensed to use the quality mark.

The UMF® quality mark is registered in all key consumer markets. ✅

The UMFHA has developed internationally recognized testing procedures to confirm the presence of key signature markers – MGO, Leptosperin and DHA – found in genuine, pure, quality Mānuka honey from New Zealand.

All honey has antibacterial activity due to what is commonly called Peroxide Activity (PA). However, Mānuka Honey has a special, unique antibacterial activity called Non-Peroxide activity (NPA).

Research has shown that NPA is very stable in Mānuka Honey even when it is exposed to light and heat.

🌟🌿Mānuka Honey is unique honey, it comes from the nectar of the flower of the Mānuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. It is the nectar and the bee that give this honey its unique properties.

It is widely recognized and highly sought after by consumers and has a substantial body of research behind it.

According to Manukmebebetter.comQuality manuka honey is manuka honey that has high levels of NPA. With the KFactor grading system, you have no insight into the NPA of Wedderspoon’s manuka honey.

according to Bloomberg:  Earlier this year, PRI commissioned independent tests from Fera Science Ltd. in England to assess various Manuka honey...“Wedderspoon didn’t meet the requirements. I’m not saying their honey is bad, it’s just not a true manuka.”

🌟Have you have seen Manuka honey in grocery stores or somewhere online? You are probably wondering why it is so expensive… because it is a premium, different, potent form of honey found in limited quantities in New Zealand and southeastern Australia, whose properties were first discovered by the indigenous Maori.🌿
🐝Manuka honey is produced by European honey bees collecting nectar from New Zealand manuka trees found in a remote wild volcanic area. It is sold as alternative medicine. Manuka honey contains over 200 signature compounds not seen in other honey, with higher antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties.🌿
🍯Since it is so expensive and high in demand, there are counterfeit versions. New Zealand produces only 1700 tons per year of real Manuka honey, and there has been manuka-labeled honey that didn’t pass testing in Britain, China, and Singapore. ​​How to make sure it’s authentic NZ Manuka honey? ✅

It must be tested and pass 5 tests by Manuka Honey Science Definition, including a DNA test. All honey labeled as mānuka for export must be tested by an MPI-recognised laboratory to make sure it meets the new mānuka honey definition. ​​
🍯To ensure you are buying genuine true-to-label Manuka honey, always buy genuine UMF™️ graded honey, like this one: a member of the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association (UMFHA) the independent organization that oversees the use of the UMF™️ quality trademark, and who supports industry-leading scientific research about Manuka honey. ​​

🍯 Not all Manuka Honey (MH) is the same and as many as 4 out of 5 jars of manuka honey are fake! One of these is the popular Wedderspoon manuka honey. According to: “ManukaMeBetter.com” instead of using the official MH grading system, Wedderspoon invented and uses the ‘KFactor’ grading system for their MH. This does not convey the purity and quality and it misleads consumers. Since the FDA is not regulating the potency level of manuka honey, it is up to us to educate ourselves to find real MH.

✅ HOW to pick an authentic MH?
1. UMF: Look for The Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) grade.  UMF grading system is a registered trademark of the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association (UMFHA). It reflects the strength of the honey’s NPA. 
2. NPA:  It measures non-peroxide activity (NPA). NPA is the antibacterial activity, the number near the UMF+ logo.
3.  UMFHA registered: Check their website to see if they are registered.

🐝 These are the things you need to look for for a guarantee of the purity and quality of your MH. NPA  is what sets manuka honey apart from other honey, the antibacterial component, the powerful antimicrobial healing properties. The higher the UMF number, the greater the antibacterial effects.
