Not Just Any Old Honey

Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the manuka tree. It’s called manuka honey because it’s made with pollen that comes from the manuka tree, which is native to New Zealand and some parts of Australia. You can recognise the manuka tree by its small white (sometimes pink) flowers and prickly leaves.

The colour of honey varies according to its botanical origin and the weather of the place where the plants grow. In general, dark honeys have higher mineral contents, and antioxidant levels.

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT

Not Just Any Old Honey

Manuka honey has a darker colour and earthier taste than other honey. It’s called manuka honey because it’s made with pollen that comes from the manuka tree, which is native to New Zealand and some parts of Australia.

Key Benefits

A potent antioxidant

Manuka honey contains phenolic acids, which are antioxidant compounds. Antioxidants help to protect cells against free radical damage.

Premium Source

Manuka honey is sourced from the Mt. Taranaki region in New Zealand, where the bees are left in the forest all year round so that pure, pristine honey can be harvested.
