Copy of WHAT IS UMF?


The UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) rating system protects the quality of Manuka honey. We are very proud of our Manuka honey and praise the fact we have a UMF rating system our consumers can trust. You can trust that what’s on our labels is what’s in our jars.

We’re so in favour of this industry standard that we are members of the Unique Manuka Foundation Honey Association that tests product to ensure it complies.

The UMF grading system is as follows:

0-4 Not detectable

5-9 Low levels

10-15 Useful levels

16+ Superior high grade

Nutritional value

Manuka honey is more than a tasty sweetener. It is a super-food also known for its medicinal value.

Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the special compound that contributes to giving our Manuka honey its super-food status… and yes, it also contains the range of proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phenolic acids and flavonoids that honey is known for. Manuka honey has been shown to restrict bacterial growth and can help to reduce inflammation. It is associated with skin, oral and digestive health and with wound care. Plus, if you have a cough or sore throat, then it’s good to have Manuka honey on your side. It’s little wonder this scarce honey is so well sought after.
