The Authenticity Mark
Unique Manuka Factor
In 1981, researchers at the New Zealand University of Waikato discovered that Manuka honey has a considerably higher level of enzymes than regular honey. These enzymes create a natural hydrogen peroxide that works as an antibacterial. Some strains of this New Zealand honey are particularly rich in hydrogen peroxide, methylglyoxal and dihydroxyacetone.
Verifying Genuine UMF Manuka Honey
The term Manuka is used to describe both leptospermum scoparium and K. ericoides. This honey is typically retrieved by beekeepers and comes only from New Zealand Manuka honey manufacturers. People have been eating and using Manuka honey for centuries, but how do you know if you’re getting an authentic product.
The minimum UMF rating recognized is UMF 5, but it is not considered beneficial unless it carries a UMF 10+ level of activity. Anything ranging from UMF 10 – UMF 15+ is a useful level, and considered a superior quality.
Genuine UMF Manuka honey should have the following:
- a UMF trademark clearly labeled on the front of the container.
- It will come from a UMF licensed company and labeled in New Zealand.
- It will have the UMF Company’s name and license number on the label.
- It will have a UMF rating number of 5–15+. If it is labeled without the UMF or without a number, then it is not the genuine product.
According to the UMF association, the UMF rating actually tests the performance of a honey and compares it to phenol, a disinfectant. The Active Manuka Honey Association that does the testing states:
The presence of the special activity can be detected only by an array of scientific testing directly relating to the phenol standard. The rating has a one-to-one relationship to the phenol standard.
The ideal UMF rating varies depending on the intended use, but laboratory studies have shown that Manuka honey with an activity level of UMF 12 to UMF 15 is very effective.
I have been consuming this manuka honey for quite some time and it continues to be amazing with every jar!
I love this honey! It is the best I have tasted so far and another huge plus is that it comes in a glass jar!
