manuka you can trust

Find your strength

Nourish your body from within with powerful, natural healing.

Research¹ shows that its the MGO (methylglyoxal- a naturally occurring compound) which gives Manuka its super powers- ‘potent anti-microbial properties’² that can help to ‘hinder the growth of microbes’³.

Put simply: as ancient literature has always told us, Manuka can be a pretty powerful tool for health and wellbeing. Researchers are yet to meet a bacteria that can stand up to its super powers⁴!

100+ MGO for a more robust elevation. Perfect for those times when you need a little extra boost, some more spring in your step.

500+ MGO for a nourishing pot of sweet joy! The ideal antidote to stresses and strains, the high MGO content will leave you buzzing and ready for anything.

Multifloral or Monofloral?

Our multifloral Manuka is derived from very busy bees, who checked out other floral sources near to the Manuka bush, while our monofloral Manuka contains only the nectar foraged from the Manuka bush.

Both are harvested by experts and, of course, tested twice for authenticity, and certified too.

Runny or creamed?

Manuka honey is naturally creamy, with a unique and luxurious texture and taste. Although it will soften and turn liquid when heated, it’s different to other creamed or runny honeys.

Creamed honey has been turned slowly to speed up the crystallisation process, bringing you a smoother, more creamy texture. Runny honey has a higher fructose content, so remains liquid for longer. Both will change in texture when exposed to hot or cold, and both can be retuned to their former state easily too.
