MANUKA HONEY USES & BENEFITS

FROM THE HIVE TO THE SHELF, TRUST COMVITA UMF™ MANUKA HONEY

We work closely with our bees and beekeepers to produce UMF™ Manuka Honey of the highest quality.

BENEFITS

Every drop of Manuka honey is protected all the way from our hives to you; making sure the Manuka flower is as potent and alive in the jar as it is in the hive. It’s what we at Comvita have been doing for four decades, and very little has changed, because we’ve mastered the method of preserving the purity of the source.

USES

Manuka honey health benefits have been touted in the natural health world for a long time and even more in recent years because a growing body of research is starting to support thousands of years of folk medicine use.

HOW IT’S MADE

Whether we’re helicoptering our UMF™ Manuka honey from remote hives deep in the bush of Kaimanawa, New Zealand, or analysing it in our world-leading laboratory, no length is too great to go to achieve perfection. Which is why we ensure every drop is also independently certified for quality, purity and authenticity by the UMF™ Honey Association.

MANUKA HONEY GRADING SYSTEM

What is UMF™?

Manuka Honey comes from the nectar of the flower of the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New
Zealand. It is the nectar and the bee that give this honey its unique properties. The number represents the unique signature
compounds characteristic of this honey which ensures purity and quality. These include: the key markers of Leptosperin, DHA and
Methylglyoxal (MGO).

    Methylglyoxal (MGO):

                   Leptosperin:

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA):

Methylglyoxal (MGO)
MGO is the compound chiefly responsible for the antibacterial property of manuka honey and forms the basis of the
UMF™ grading system.

Leptosperin
Leptosperin is also found in manuka nectar, and due to its unique abundance in manuka honey has been identified as
the most discerning characteristic to distinguish manuka honey from other honey types.

Hydroxymethylfurfural
DHA is in the nectar of manuka flowers and converts into MGO once the bees gather the nectar and turn it into honey.
