Organic Manuka Honey
🌟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 an alternative medicine. Manuka honey contains over 200 signature compounds not seen in other honeys, 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-labelled 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.
