Manuka Pharm Manuka Honey MGO 40
Created by bees that forage on New Zealand’s leptospermum scoparium, or manuka bush, manuka honey is big news on the alternative health scene. With a distinctive flavour and antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, it is pretty special stuff, but is the manuka honey price point really worth it?
Produced by hives in wild, uncultivated areas, true manuka honey, such as Manuka Pharm’s multifloral MGO 40 honey, has been employed by indigenous Maori people for thousands of years.
Some of those traditional uses are now backed by scientific studies. So while it is more expensive than your average supermarket honey, manuka is equally comparable to local honey.
A delicious alternative to table sugar, manuka honey is great stirred into a cup of tea, perfect for drizzling over yoghurt and soothing when blended with hot water. But it is not just suitable to eat: many people choose to harness manuka’s properties by using it topically.
