Manuka is the Native New Zealand Maori name for the leptospermum scoparium tree.
Australian by Nature sources Manuka Honey from our own apiaries in far north New Zealand. This honey is produced by honeybees and collected from beehives located in high density, organic and pollution free Manuka Forests.
Once collected, it is filtered and bottled to ensure that it retains its natural properties. Manuka honey is extremely stable and not affected by light, heat nor dilution making it very effective in many applications.
Australian by Nature Manuka Honey is 100% natural with no additives. Fresh Manuka is packed in one of New Zealand’s most highly accredited facilities where it is labelled in compliance with standards implemented by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
Each batch of Australian by Nature Manuka Honey is tested and certified by an accredited laboratory under the ISO17025 standard for its MGO (Methylglyoxal) levels, in compliance with MGS (Molan Gold Standard™) guaranteeing a minimum level of methylglyoxal. This test result is shown on our label. For example, MGO 600 (MGS 16+) Manuka Honey assures there is a minimum of 600mg of methylglyoxal per kg. The Molan Gold Standard references this marker, as tested and certified by an accredited laboratory under the ISO17025 standard.
