New Zealand Manuka Honey is world famous for its unique properties. UMF in particular provides special benefits for the human body. UMF stands for 'UNIQUE MANUKA FACTORS'. ACTIVE MANUKA is an antibacterial property which is naturally present in some strains of NZ MANUCA HONEY, but it is not in all Manuka Honey. UMF HONEY, the type of Manuka Honey which has the special UMF antibacterial property, is highly sought after for its health-giving qualities.
The UMF property is a floral property occurring naturally in the nectar of some Manuka flowers. UMF ACTIVE MANUKA HONEY is totally natural and safe. It has been enjoyed for its own unique flavour for many years. The UMF activity is additional to the usual active properties of honey. Among those that do have this, the strength varies. The UMF standard was established to identify and set apart the type of Manuka Honey which has the UMF healing property. The small proportion of ACTIVE MANUKA HONEY that has the special UMF property is identified by the name UMF. The medical uses are well documented.
The presence of the UMF property can only be detected by special scientific testing using criteria laid down by the Honey Research Unit at The University of Waikato. Gribbles Analytical Laboratories in Hamilton, New Zealand, is the only laboratory approved to carry out UMF testing. The UMF letters are followed by a number that indicates the strength of the UMF antibacterial property in a batch of MANUKA HONEY tested in the licensed laboratory after the honey has been packed.
For thousands of years the HEALTH BENEFIT OF MANUKA HONEY including healing properties, has been well known. It has also been traditionally recognized that honey from some ACTIVE MANUKA plants in some areas is more effective than other honeys. Most honeys have antibacterial activity due to the enzyme, glucose oxidise, which gives rise to hydrogen peroxide, a proven antiseptic with antibacterial properties. Honey from some strains of the New Zealand MANUKA Bush (Leptospermum Scoparium) has an antibacterial activity not present in any other honey. The name UMF is a guarantee that the honey being sold has the special UMF antibacterial property to the level indicated on the label. These special MANUKA HONEY PROPERTIES are only found in MANUKA HONEY NEW ZEALAND.
