WHAT IS MANUKA HONEY?
Manuka honey (derived from the Leptospermum Scoparium) is the first honey variety that has been very extensively researched by leading universities worldwide and recognized for its special, natural and distinctive antibacterial properties. This rare honey is produced only a few weeks a year when the Manuka tree is in bloom. Manuka nectar provides the special natural compounds that make Manuka honey one of the most prized honeys – a combination of the ancient properties of honey and the powerful properties of the New Zealand Manuka tree. Manuka honey owes its complexity to New Zealand’s unique environment and location. New Zealand’s natural ecosystems, clean waters, pure air and diverse weather conditions created robust plants and trees (such as the native Manuka tree (Leptospermum Scoparium)) that thrive by adapting.
