Product Description

IMPORTANT: Read this BEFORE you buy Manuka honey

Our Manuka Honey UMF® 18+ has a very high antibacterial certification, almost as high as our Manuka honey UMF 20+, but at a significant price advantage.

It comes in a 250g (8.82oz) pot.

Manuka  UMF® honey has higher levels of antibacterial activity than normal honey.

UMF® is a quality mark that ensures that all manuka honey sold with the mark has been independently tested for its antibacterial level and must have been packed and produced in New Zealand. The higher the level of UMF® the higher the level of antibacterial benefits.

A  UMF® level of 10+ or higher is recommended and used by medical professionals.

Manuka honey has proven to be effective for the following.

  • Enhancing general health and energy
  • Digestive health
  • Sore throat relief
  • Healing wounds

How to use

Mix with warm water and enjoy as a soothing drink, or spread onto bread or toast. Or even eat on it’s own!

Can be used internally and externally.

Do not give to babies under 1 year of age.


Pure New Zealand Manuka Honey UMF® 18+ 

UMFHA Licence # 1043

The UMF grading system appraises natural markers found in Manuka honey, and assures purity & quality. This is compliant with the recent interim labelling guidelines published by the Ministry for Primary Industries. 

The UMF grading system has two components which are expressed on any UMF licenced honey product:

  1. 1.     The label claim that it is Manuka  
  2. 2.     The number - this represents three chemical markers that indicate the content of this honey to ensure purity and quality. This includes the key chemical markers DHA and MGO. 

To receive a UMF® grading, a honey must have the presence of DHA (dihydroxyacetone), Methylglyoxal, and Leptosperin. The UMF® rating is a measure of the attributes and values that make up Manuka honey, and assures purity & quality.

  1. Excellent alternative

    When we could not buy your Manuka UMF 20+ honey recently we ordered this UMF18+ Manuka honey and found it to be just as effective for our occasional sore throats and tummy upsets. It is a wonderful product.
