Description

  • A trusted New Zealand brand of authentic and scientifically tested Manuka Honey
  • An everyday grade Manuka with anti-microbial properties from MGO (Methylglyoxal)
  • Tested five times for purity and quality between Hive to Home

All Manuka Pharm honey is tested in New Zealand to ensure it meets the Government's strict export standard. Every batch is also tested again once in the UK at an independent lab to confirm the important MGO content before sale.


A good choice for an everyday Multifloral Manuka honey. To take, simply try a spoonful everyday, or mix into hot drinks. Manuka Pharm honey can also be enjoyed as an ingredient in healthy cooking, like smoothies, breakfasts, baking, tonics or hot toddies. Manuka honey is a different consistency to other honeys. It's thicker and creamier, not thin and runny. It has a milder level of sweetness and natural earthy flavour.

FAQs

Who are Manuka Pharm?

Manuka honey specialists Manuka Pharm work alongside the New Zealand government to ensure only the best and most pure manuka reaches Holland and Barrett’s shelves.

Packed and sealed in NZ, all Manuka Pharm honey bears the New Zealand government’s seal of approval.

What do MGO and UMF stand for?

Testing and grading are carried out on every jar of manuka. This testing ensures you receive the best manuka honey, genuine and pure.

The manuka honey UMF, or unique manuka factor, rating reflects the amount of MGO in a jar of manuka, giving you an indication of how potent your honey is.

MGO is short for methylglyoxal. This is the ingredient that is thought to make MGO honey more potent than other types, giving it its antibacterial properties. The higher the MGO of your honey, the more powerful it is believed to be.

Why is manuka honey so expensive?

You have probably noticed that Holland and Barrett manuka honey is a lot more expensive than other honeys.

In fact, this is true of all manuka honey. Manuka tends to cost more because there is so much involved in the process of getting it to you.

Manuka trees only grow at altitude in remote, unspoilt areas of New Zealand. Set in these difficult to access areas, manuka beehives often have to be lifted in and out of farmland by helicopter.

Add to this is the fact that manuka blooms for just two to eight weeks each year and that it is easily impacted by inclement weather conditions and manuka’s reputation as ‘liquid gold’ makes complete sense.

Manuka honey also goes through rigorous (and pricey) testing to ensure its purity, providing a manuka honey MGO and UMF accreditation for each jar.

Why is manuka so much better than my usual honey?

Unlike most of the honey you will find in the supermarket, manuka goes through very little processing before it finds its way to your kitchen cupboard.

This is just one of the reasons it is so popular with raw food enthusiasts.

Because it remains in its untreated state, manuka tends to maintain some compounds that are lost to heat treating in other honeys.

Manuka also contains three chemicals – MGO, DHA and Leptosperin - all thought to have positive effects on our wellbeing.

There is no conclusive scientific evidence of this. However, many people believe the purity of manuka makes it more beneficial than your usual homegrown honey.

What is manuka honey?

Made by bees who forage on the native New Zealand scrub plant, Leptospermum scoparium, manuka honey is considered more potent than the honey produced by our own UK honey bees.

Raw manuka honey is touted for its natural antibacterial properties, as well as its rich, delicious flavour.
