Manuka Honey FAQ

About Manuka Honey

What kind of honey is manuka honey?

Manuka honey is honey made from the nectar of the flowers of the Manuka tree, which is native to New Zealand.

Known as the "healing tree" by the Maori people, the indigenous people of New Zealand, it has been loved as a panacea .

Recently, it has received high attention in the health field, such as being certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States.

Why is it more expensive than regular honey?

Ordinary honey is generally made up of several types of nectar. You can collect some honey during the year. Manuka honey, on the other hand, is made exclusively from the nectar of the Manuka flower. Manuka blooms only for about 4 to 6 weeks in each region of New Zealand, and the time and period during which nectar can be harvested is limited.

Manuka honey is a rare honey with limited locations and harvesting times .

In addition, Honey Fusion Manuka Honey is honey taken from Manuka grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soils of New Zealand's North Island. It has a smooth and luxurious taste.

Many studies have shown that manuka honey has 8 times more antibacterial activity than regular honey.

Manuka honey also contains methylglyoxal (MGO), which is an antibacterial ingredient called hydrogen peroxide.

This MGO has been shown to act specifically against malignant cells in the body.

In addition, it reaches the intestines alive "without losing stomach acid" and fights bad bacteria in the intestines.

About MGO

Compared to regular honey, which is harvested nearly 2 million tons annually, manuka honey yields only about 2,800 tons, which is less than 1/600 of that. Manuka honey is such a precious commodity, but that's not the only reason why it's so expensive. As much as it is touted as a panacea, the effects of manuka honey are enormous.

Prevention of colds and infectious diseases

About expiration date

By the Food Sanitation Act, every edible product must come with a best before date.

These best before dates are carefully assessed to ensure their validity. If an item is deemed to be best up to 1 year after manufacturing, the item is monitored and tested over 14 months. Typically, honey is said to be best 2 to 5years after manufacturing.

However, it is important to note that these dates are not expiration dates.

In fact, honey is widely known to be an effective emergency-food. This is because, despite the label, honey generally does not spoil.

The low moisture and high sugar content in honey makes it impossible for bacteria to survive if stored properly.

Because of its high antibacterial properties, it is said that honey was used as an embalming agent in Ancient Egypt.Indeed, when historians discovered 3000 year old honey from an Egyptian tomb in 2005, it was deemed to be in perfectly edible condition!

The same applies to the jar of Mānuka honey in your pantry. With proper storage (that is, sealed and without adding any moisture), it should be just fine to eat, regardless of the label.
