What is real New Zealand Mānuka honey?
Renowned for its dark brown colour and herbaceous flavor, authentic Mānuka honey comes from the native New Zealand Mānuka tree flower. Honey bees collect the nectar and natural pollens integral to the unique qualities of raw Mānuka honey. Leptosperin, found in Mānuka bush nectar, and MGO (Methylglyoxal), are the essential compounds of UMF Mānuka honey,distinguishing real Mānuka honey products from other types of honey.
