Manuka honey is a monofloral honey, unique in the world. The bees collect the nectar from the fresh-scented flowers of the Manuka shrub (Leptospermum Scoparium), native to New Zealand, and from this nectar they prepare a honey of an opaque orange and with a slightly caramelized taste, of eucalyptus.
What is the difference between plain raw honey and Manuka honey?
Unlike ordinary raw honey, Manuka honey has a very high content of methylglyoxal (MGO ™) – an active substance, the concentration of which indicates the antibacterial power of this product. The higher the MGO ™ level, the higher the antibacterial activity of honey.
