Manuka Honey Information

Lots of information about manuka honey, its benefits, and uses.

The importance of UMF®. Not all manuka honeys are UMF® rated. This is a quality mark that helps protect consumers from being misled into purchasing honey with little or no activity. Not all Manuka honeys are UMF® rated (and did you know that all honey is 'active', to some degree). Learn more on our UMF® explanation page here.

There is also quite a bit of information contained on the pages of the two most popular manuka honey products - the UMF 20+ , and the Manukacare 18+ for external use. 

Useful links through to some of the university research for you. Plus  articles that you may find informative.

We've often struggled to describe the taste of manuka honey, except to say it has quite a strong and distinct flavour that most people like - coming from New Zealand we have just grown up on its taste and consider it normal.

As professional honey tasters are hard to find, we've sought the opinion of a professional chocolate taster instead: (based on the Comvita UMF10+ honey)

Smell - molasses and caramel

Taste - molasses + raisin + dates, plus candied orange peels

Aftertaste - molasses + wood + eucalyptus
