The delicious, sweet craft of the honey bee has been loved cross the globe for thousands of years but more recently it is Manuka honey that has been gaining worldwide recognition for its incredible benefits. New Zealand Manuka bush honey contains extraordinary, naturally present, antibacterial activity which is responsible for the internationally researched benefits of Manuka honey. This unique antibacterial factor is not found in any other variety of honey, nor is it present in all Manuka honey.Manuka honey has been hailed for its unique antibacterial properties not found in other honeys and has earned a reputation as one of the best natural alternatives to help maintain good health and wellbeing.While other honeys might have a degree of antibacterial activity when it is first extracted from the hive (derived from hydrogen peroxide), it is not stable. Manuka honey is different: it has a further antibacterial factor (a non peroxide activity or NPA) which is stable and not affected by light or moderate heat. It is this which is responsible for the muchtalked-about benefits of Manuka honey.
NPA cannot be seen or tasted, so shoppers are totally reliant on accurate and honest labelling on the jar. The UMF® Honey Association is an organisation that has set up an international programme of verification for the unique antibacterial factor found in some Manuka honey. The label claim states the levels of Non-Peroxide Activity and in order to qualify for the UMF® stamp of approval, the association also verifies the honey’s origin as being from New Zealand, has independent verification of production standards to ensure consumer safety and tests for other compounds that assist synergistically with the antibacterial factor.
