UMFHA license #1032
Our dark, sticky and delicious hero ingredient comes from bees that exclusively pollinate the nectar of the Mānuka flower (Leptospermum scoparium) which grows wild and freely over the pristine hillsides of New Zealand.
However, Manuka honey is complex honey that goes far beyond simple table honey. It has been the focus of extensive scientific research evidencing remarkable natural properties that set it apart from other kinds of honey and make it so highly prized throughout the world.
The UMF™ grading system uses the most comprehensive and transparent test currently available for Mānuka honey and appraises natural, unique signature markers such as Leptosperin, DHA and Methylglyoxal (or MGO). While MGO is the key to determining the UMF™ grade of Mānuka honey, it cannot be used on its own to prove whether honey is genuine. This is why the UMF™ Honey Association check for the presence of other markers, as they are unique to Mānuka and can’t be chemically manufactured.
The Honey Collection's UMF™ 10+ Manuka Honey is tested and guaranteed to contain the three unique compounds of genuine Manuka Honey in every batch (MGO, Leptospermum, DHA). The UMF™ grading system and Mark appraises these natural markers found in Mānuka honey and assures purity and quality. Please see www.umf.org.nz.
