For 45 years we’ve been perfecting our beekeeping craft, sourcing Manuka Honey from the remote hills and pristine forests of New Zealand. We’re thrilled that nutritionists, health practitioners, and natural wellness experts across the US are now discovering the power of this pure, precious resource.
To keep up with increasing consumer demand, many Manuka Honey brands are now in natural food stores and upscale supermarkets across the country. Some of these are labeled with terms like “Bio-Active”, “Active”, or “Factor”, with numbers ranging from 5 to 500.
With so many different grading systems and distinctions, you probably find yourself wondering, is there honestly a difference? And how would you even know?
We’re going to let you in on a little secret: yeah, there is –– and it’s a big one!
Until recently, there was no single standard for what constitutes Real Manuka Honey (even then, some still claim authenticity even though no one has tested or verified what’s in the jar). So, in an effort to clear up the confusion surrounding Manuka Honey, we wanted to provide you with a simple guide of how to tell the difference between verifiable quality and marketing hype.
