Nature’s Miracle

Manuka honey comes from the nectar of the flower of the Manuka bush (leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. It is this special nectar and the bee that give Manuka honey its unique properties. Manuka honey is highly sought after for the following reasons – the Manuka flower only produces nectar for 3-4 weeks a year, Manuka honey includes signature compounds not available in other types of honey, and because the unique properties of Manuka honey are well understood by consumers around the world.

Using Manuka Honey

Consumed in at least 60 countries around the world, New Zealand mānuka honey lovers have created their own ways of incorporating mānuka honey into their routines to support a healthy lifestyle.

Most popular may be enjoying it straight off the spoon, closely followed by adding a spoonful to a favourite tea or cup of hot water.  It is used as a natural sweetener, particularly as a healthy cereal topping, added to smoothies, or anytime you want a delicious boost to your breakfast.

Mānuka honey is widely used as a natural skincare either directly on the skin, blended into a natural skin cream, or as an ingredient in a store bought skincare product (always look for the UMF™ quality mark).

 Whether sucking on a lozenge or savouring a dollop on the tongue, mānuka honey is well recognised for soothing sore throats and easing coughs.

Manuka Honey Research

Research into the potential applications for mānuka honey is ongoing with hundreds of published scientific papers on record.

Initial research early in its development identified the potential applications for mānuka honey to support wound care.  This has led to a category of products in this area ranging from ointments to bandages infused with mānuka honey.

In particular, the compounds methylglyoxal (MGO) and leptospermum have attracted significant attention in laboratory research.

Reasearch shows that when consumed, leptospermum crosses the gut into the bloodstream, confirming the potential for it to be a natural support for health and wellness.

Three areas of particular interest with researchers are:

  1. The antibacterial potential of MGO and the non-peroxide action of New Zealand Mānuka Honey
  2. The initial identification of anti-inflammatory potential in laboratory research
  3. The antioxidant action identified during in-vitro trials and in large scale reviews of mānuka honey research. 

Manuka Honey That Tastes Good

The flavour profile of Manuka honey is greatly affected by the environment the Manuka flower grows in. WildCape is a single source UMF™ Manuka honey harvested exclusively from the untouched and unspoilt East Cape region. Unlike Manuka honey from other regions which can have a strong flavour and bitter aftertaste, Manuka honey from the East Cape region of New Zealand is highly regarded for its delicious mild flavour.
