Manuka Honey is simply honey which has only been made by a Manuka Tree.
Manuka tree is native to New Zealand. Manuka Honey differs from Generic Honey because it is significantly higher in an anti-bacterial compound called Methylglyoxal (MG). This compound has been known to promote the health of the digestive system and help wounds heal.
Manuka Honey also contains a number of other known bio-active antibacterial components, which when combined with Methylglyoxal (MG) gives manuka honey it’s very powerful anti-bacterial properties.
Because many of these compounds are sensitive to farming methods, heat and light, then the quantities of these compounds of Manuka Honey can vary dramatically from one source of Manuka Honey to the other.
The Unique Manuka Factor or UMF, represents the Total Antibacterial Power of a batch of Manuka Honey. (To get more information on the honey rating system, please click here.)
The higher the UMF factor, it indicates higher UMF abilities.
The UMF factor is often displayed on the jar and is considred to be a reliable medical measure of its antibacterial properties.
As most Manuka honey producers heat the honey to process it, many bio-active components are destroyed in the processing.
The top health Benefits of Manuka honey are:
Promote Digestive System Health
Helps to Heal Wounds
Powerful Antibacterial Properties
Unique Manuka Factor
Raw honey can be made from any plants and it is simply honey which has not been heated.
This means that any heat sensitive bio-active compounds are not destroyed in the processing.
Examples of these bio-active compounds are:
Bee-Defensin Which is a powerful anti-bacterial agent, which is know to promote digestive health.
Caffeic Acid Another phenolic compound which is a powerful anti-oxidant.
Catechins Another phenolic compound which is also found in green tea.
Catechins are also a known powerful anti-oxidant and are associated with protecting the cardio-vascular system.
Due to the natural variation in honey, there no guarantees as to how much of these beneficial compounds will be present in each jar of raw honey.
This makes it’s potency less reliable than Manuka Honey.
So in short, Manuka Honey is a powerful anti-bacterial agent, which is tested for potency. Whereas raw honey has much more beneficial compounds, but the quantity is not measured.
So in summary Manuka Honey v Raw Honey
Full of Beneficial Bio-Active compounds such as:
Promote digestive system health
Helps to heal wounds
Powerful Anti-bacterial properties
Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) / Antibacterial power
No Guarantee of Potency, Less reliable than Manuka Honey
Often processed using heat, destroying many beneficial bio-active compounds.

This product contains sugar and glucose syrup (from corn). Diabetics need to pause before consuming this product.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any nutritional information on these candies, as a result of this, Diabetics, people on a diet or people with very specific food issues (eg salt intake) need to minimize consumption of this product.
I like the fact that this company has a lot of trademarks and that they use sustainable harvesting methods to get their Manuka Honey. I like that the product is authentically from New Zealand. This company gives the appearance that they really care about their bees, plants and entire supply chain. I like that.
I like the product and thought it tasted great. I like that the level of Manuka is very high and that the company is fully licensed to produce this product.
For improvements, I think the packaging needs a Nutritional Table, but I understand that not all competitors in this space provide that.
I think it’s a great product and it will help a lot of people. I’m glad I had some in the pantry at home.

Number 1, it has a very good taste. It is full flavoured, I love it.
It has unique qualities in that it has antibacterial qualities.
You would take the product. You can take it by the spoonful. A lot of people take it everyday for just general good health.
You can mix it with other products, you can mix it with yoghurt. You can mix it in your tea. It’s a very good sweetener. It’s lovely to enhance the flavours, but it’s also good for you.
With the antibacterial qualities you have in the honey. It will develop good gut control, so you have good balance in your gut.
The key thing that Dr Peter Molan found was that it kills Helicobacter pylori. Helicobacter Pylori is the bacteria which is in your gut and it is the trigger that will create stomach ulcers. So if you are a person who has a high stress life, maybe you eat your food that is a little rich or a little strong, then maybe you should be eating Manuka Honey everyday. Particularly with a good UMF+ rating so that it keeps a balance in your gut and that your digestive system is really good.
It is excellent for sore throats. A good mix of Manuka Honey with maybe lemon juice or ginger with hot water.
And make sure it’s hot water. Don’t put boiling water in on your honey, because if you put boiling water in on your honey, then you will sterilize the honey and all the goodness, all the antibacterial qualities would be gone.
So just good hot water, mixed with whatever flavour you like and honey is a great tonic to have in the evening. I’ve got a lot of people who mix it with milk and they say it makes them sleep beautifully.

Have you ever stopped and wondered “What Is Manuka Honey?” I have.
Manuka honey has the highest levels of the special plant based immune system boosting nutrients phenol, which is what makes Manuka Honey so amazing.
This special ingredient found naturally in Manuka Honey is called methylglyoxal (MG / MGO) and that’s why Manuka honey is so highly regarded worldwide.
Have you ever wondered what the plant was that attracts the bees in the first place? If yes, then please click here. Have you ever been curious as to how bees go about making the wonderful substance we call honey? If yes please click here.

Methylglyoxal (MG) is unique to Manuka Honey. We do no find a significant amount of this compound in any other honey, even in any other food, we cannot find methylglyoxal (MG). There are small amounts in roasted coffee, but the amounts are one or two orders of magnitude lower when compared with Manuka Honey.
I would rate Manuka Honey as a genuine, functional food. Of course, I know that there are many studies necessary, clinical studies in order to prove the benefits, but I am pretty sure that Manuka Honey are one of the few items, one of the few food items that such a beneficial effect can be shown.
Question: Why is Manuka Honey unique?
Answer: Due to the presence of methylglyoxal (MG)
