Good price but this is not a proper manuka honey whatever they say
Unproven to have any medical benifits at all (apart from if you rub some on a burn it MIGHT get better a bit more quickly)!

Interesting! Followed it up though and as far as I can see the numbers you're quoting are only by the NZ authoritiy. The Oz AMHA has 2 definitions for manuka. One is pure ( authentic) and the other is less pure (authorized). The authorized stuff sounds like crap:

"...we authorise the producer to use this mark on the basis of their expertise as honey producers. There is research currently ongoing into the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of these grades...."

As for the ratings apparently, should be 10+, (higher is better), whilst under 8 has no theraputic qualities whatsoever and is 'just honey'. I can definately see a 5 on that jar so ..'Ahm oot!'
This is a load of crap. The ONLY honey that is genuine Manuka and each batch is always tested is UMF rated. Only some products are allowed to use the UMF rating. Anything below 10+UMF isn't worth buying. Anything over 10+UMF is OK but & a big BUT don't pay much more for it than 10+ UMF as 15+ is not 1.5X better or 30 isn't 3x better as 10+UMF is the 'sweet spot' killing 99% of MRSA, C difficile etc.- you can't kill 150% or 300% so save your money!

Read my other replies on manuka honey & YES I did all the research on it many, many years ago before google, yahoo etc. were around, when it was easier to find the 'proper' research.I also worked as a microbiologist so did my own research as i was that astounded about what I read.

Normal cheapo honey from anywhere is every bit as good for you as this NON genuine manuka. In fact it may be better.

Bought this a few weeks ago and its very tasty on crumpets.
Excellent for minor burns to skin.

I always have Rowse number 10
I went a bit crazy on account of it being Manuka and bought like 6 jars of these last time they were on sale and they tasted gross. Acacia honey is less valuable and cheaper but tastes much nicer.

Certified and stamped .
You saying it's fake manuka honey ! ?
Have tasted lots of different organic brands of manuka honey and can happy say this one is in my top 3, seems like to me peoples taste buds change when they see the price.

There is plenty of scientific proof of it's antibacterial/microbial properties. It does get used on wounds in hospitals for this purpose, to prevent infection.

There is almost zero evidence that eating it has any immunology-related benefits.

You can research the scientific literature if you'd like.

It looks genuine to me but the rating is very low so they've basically bought the lowest quality honey. It seems to be a fair price but you get what you pay for. Personally I'd stick to Steens

I'm sorry

If I convince my friends not to get their kids vaccinated, will I win some brownie points back?
These fake honey have caused me anxiety and put me off honey for life. I have nightmares of bee's trying to kill me. I have lost my job, I can't see my husband naked because his ding dong reminds me of a bee stinger. my kids fear me as I keep beating them with a stick think they are bee's. These fake honey have to stop and are destroying lives in the process. Will somebody please think of the children.

Manuka honey below +15 is not really medicinal but still this is a good price for +5 !
Manuka - marketing brand for NZ honey.

I am amazed that their feminist woke PM has not banned the use of 'man' in the brand.

Who cares? It's good honey regardless.
