A little more about Manuka's healthiness
Manuka tree honey is a natural product that is made by bees who feed primarily (and often entirely) on nectar from the medicinal New Zealand tree known as the Manuka or Tea Tree. The raw manuka honey is reported to have unique antibacterial properties above and beyond the hydrogen peroxide-generating properties of ordinary honey.
The special active manuka honey benefits are quantified by the honeys UMF or Unique Manuka Factor that ranges from 5+ to 20+ and which is measured by laboratory testing. The higher the UMF, the greater the antibacterial activity beyond the normal antibacterial qualities found in honey.
For more information, take a look at this eye-opening article from the BBC, which seemed to help kickstart the UK Manuka honey craze back in 2004. A fascination and a love which, it seems, is never going away. In fact the praise, respect, demand and adoration for Manuka Honey seems higher than ever - particularly in Europe.
