Comments From Customer Review Summary:

Customer Review #1    This is a great tasting raw honey with a mountain of healing benefits

   April 14, 2016   5.0 out of 5 stars

What makes wedderspoon Manuka honey different is its amazing nutritional profile. Regular raw honey is already known for its tremendous nutritional and immune boosting abilities. Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of: (2)

Amino acidsB vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid), Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium ,Manganese, Phosphoru, potassium, Sodium and Zinc

Yet with Manuka honey, the nutritional content is up to 4 times that of normal flower honeys. This is what is called the Unique Manuka Factor.

Customer Review #2 Super Honey that cures all. No really.

By Caitlin     April 15, 2016   5.0 out of 5 stars.

This honey. Where to begin? It is AMAZING. I have given this to my friends with the bacteria H. Pylori, acid reflux, and stomach discomfort. Each and every one of them loves it and swears by it. Is it expensive ? Oh goodness, yes.

Does it work? A resounding YES. Is it worth it? 100% YES!

This product is so good, and the taste is so delicious, it is simply worth every single penny. It has a color of liquid gold, smells somewhat minty, and is extremely viscous. This honey is only found in the top hills of New Zealand where the manuka plant grows, and the huge bees that fly up at that elevation, giving a world renown quality and flavor that is so unique, I promise you, you will not regret trying this out. As a longtime Amazon customer, I rely on reviews from the Amazon community when making buying decisions. That being said, I only believe in giving honest and unbiased reviews. If this review was helpful to you in any way please click below.  Thanks for reading!

Customer Review #3  Yummy

July 7, 2015      5.0 out of 5 stars

Tastes just like the honey I had growing up. I didn’t realize the difference in taste until I tried the Manuka. It reminds me of the honeycomb we used to buy in the wooden frame. Surprise, surprise! That meant it was unpasteurized and raw. No wonder it tasted so good. I received my package promptly.


Final Thoughts:

  • I like that this company really cares about their bees and the health of their hives.
  • I like that this company is in New Zealand, USA and Europe.
  • I like that this product is certified and GMO free which is wonderful.
  • I like the taste of this honey.
  • This honey is very healthy and has LOTS of health benefits.  Definitely worth it.

This is a wonderful product which has helped a lot of people.  It seems very high quality for the price.

  2. Didn’t know about this company. It does sound interesting on the health benefits. I do like the info on the bees and the possible problem with the insecticides. I guess there is a regional difference when it comes to honey productions. I think the info you gave is very good and will definitely look more into it. Thanks Rich

    1. Hi Rich,

  3. Mmmmm. I love honey. I use it to battle my allergies though. Isn’t it better to use as local as possible honey when treating allergies? And I had no idea on the glycemic index part. I could have sworn I read something that stated it was higher than can sugar… but I could be wrong.

    1. Hi Vee,
      Thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate that. You sound like you have done a little honey research already which is great to see.
      You are right that LOCAL RAW HONEY is wonderful to use all year round to help with treating allergies like hayfever. This is because the local raw honey will contain pollens from local plants, grasses and flowers that could trigger your hayfever in the spring time. To learn more about this, please click here

      In regards to honey and cane sugar, honey has more calories than cane sugar but it is twice as sweet so many people only have half as much as a result. As a result of this raw honey has actually been declared beneficial for people looking to lose weight – I know I was totally surprised by that result as well. I was so totally surprised that I have written an article on this, you can read more here
      Thanks again for stopping by.

    1. HI Ray,
      Thank you for stopping by today.
      I have never had anyone ask what are the benefits of honey as a pre-work out boost before. Hmmm if I was to guess I would say that honey has lots of calories and glucose so it would give you a large boost of energy very quickly.
      If weight loss is one of your workout goals, then yes honey is wonderful for that as well. I wrote an article on that topic, you can read it here

      Thanks again for stopping by.

  4. Hi there,

    Wow, I am impressed by all the benefits the Manuka honey offer!
    I usually use honey in my tea especially when I don’t feel good, and it really helps! I didn’t know that honey can be utilized for so many things. Just a question, please. Why is the Manuka honey forbidden for children under 12 years old?
    Thank you for this excellent review!

    1. Hi Daniella,

      Thanks for stopping by.  Yes, I agree Manuka Honey is wonderful.  I couldn’t believe all the benefits it has either.  To learn more about the benefits of Manuka Honey, please click here

      Raw honey is not advised for children under 12 months of age (1 year).  This is because their tummies are still developing.  From time to time raw honey contains spores from the pollen that the bees collect. Infant botulism happens when these spores develop in the intestines and releases the toxin. Adults have mature digestive tracks so they are usually fine. Children under 6 months of age however have trouble fighting this off.  That is why the best advice is not to give RAW honey to children under 12 months (1 year) of age.  You can read more about botulism here if you like

      Botulism spores are destroyed when honey is heated above 85 °C (185 °F) for longer than 5 minutes.  That is why lots of Supermarket honey is heated (pasteurized).  The heating process destroys many beneficial volatile nutrients and minerals unique to honey which is why lots of people prefer to eat RAW honey. I wrote an article on the beneficial nutrients found in raw honey.  You are welcome to read it here.  

      Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by.

  5. I absolutely love honey and have never heard of this brand before so I will check this out. Super informative post. I had no idea that honey is heat treated to kill possible bad bacteria but also kills some some of the good things in it as well. Guess I never knew what pasteurizing even was.

    1. Hi Nathan,

      Thank you for visiting us today. I really appreciate that. Yes, many common products found in today’s Supermarket aisles are heat treated for product quality control purposes. That’s one of the reasons why many people are deliberately starting to “hunt” around and source food that is closer to the quality and purity of food that our Grandparents (and ancestors) used to eat. Raw honey fits this concept beautifully.

  6. Great post. Love Manuka honey! The best honey known comes from Nea Zealand, in fact, a family member of mine buys queen bees from New Zealand. It is great this product is non-GMO I think that is really important and maintains the quality of Manuka honey. There are so many uses for Manuka honey the possibilities are endless when you have a good quality product.

    1. Hi Dawn,

      Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate that.  Yes, I agree Manuka Honey is WONDERFUL, thank you for saying that.  It’s great that you have heard of this type of honey before.

      You are also right to say that Manuka Honey has so many wonderful uses.  You can learn more about the some great uses for Manuka Honey here The Health Benefits Of Manuka Honey.

      Thanks again for stopping by.

  7. Thank for writing this informative article about Manuka Raw Honey.
    I have been using honey for many years but I didn’t know that there is a such kind of natural and unpasteurized honey, I am trying to buy organic honey I believe I am not getting enough benefits as same I could get from Manuka. I have replaced regular sugar by honed and my health has improved significantly. For example, I used to have problem with teeth today no more pain.
    The price of this Manuka is very high but if you buy it as remedies it is fine because raw honey doesn’t expire in short period.
    Thanks.

    1. Hi Joel,

      Thank you for visiting today.  It’s great to hear that you are already using honey in your daily life.  Good on you.

      I am happy to share that yes, honey can be heated (pasteurized) and not heated (raw).  When the honey is in it’s original and “raw” form, it has many additional health benefits.  This is because it contains volatile bee specific vitamins and minerals which get destroyed in the heating process.  You can learn more about the benefits of raw honey here. Manuka Honey v Raw Honey.

      Regular cane sugar v Honey.  Good on your for substituting regular sugar with honey.  Did you know that by switching to honey you are actually helping to lose weight?  I know I didn’t believe it either.  You can learn more about the benefits of using honey instead of sugar here Raw Honey and Weight Loss – The Results Will Surprise You.

      Thanks again for stopping by.  I am glad I could help you today.

    1. Hi Ghost,
