Manuka Flowers for Honey Making

The Power of Manuka Honey 

Trusted since ancient times

Honey has played an important role in both health and culinary activities for centuries, the medicinal importance of honey has been documented in the world's oldest medical literature, - including Egyptian records from over 7000 years ago. Since ancient times, Manuka Honey has been said to possess antimicrobial properties as well as wound-healing activity. 

What’s so special about manuka honey?

Many people use high grade manuka honey medicinally or as a daily tonic.  

There are dozens of scientific studies that have found manuka honey to be particularly effective for certain conditions.

New Zealand law prevents us from making therapeutic claims about manuka honey as we sell the honey as a food product not a medicine, but a quick search for manuka honey on PubMed is a great place to start to learn about its unique properties.

How do we collect and prepare our manuka honey for market?

Manuka is the local indigenous māori name for the Leptospermum scoparium tree. In the Far North, the manuka tree has its main flowering months in October and November.  Our bees collect the mānuka nectar to make honey during the flowering months.

 

There’s a special ingredient that starts its life in the nectar of the manuka flower at this time called dihydroxyacetone (DHA).
