Discover the buzz around Pure Gold Manuka Honey! It’s a special variety of Manuka honey that contains even more unique antibacterial properties than regular honey – and still tastes lovely.
An internationally-accredited laboratory, approved by the New Zealand government, tests Pure Gold Manuka Honey for dietary methylglyoxal (MGO), where the honey’s antibacterial properties lie, and non-peroxide activity (NPA). A higher MGO level means a higher level of antibacterial properties.
So, why is it called Pure Gold? Pure Gold Manuka Honey is like a luxurious version of normal Manuka honey, with a darker colour, thicker consistency and a creamier texture. It’s known round the world for its combination of impressive antibacterial properties and rich flavour.
This honey is of the monofloral variety, meaning that the bees who collected the nectar for the honey visited the Manuka bush and not any other flowers or plants. The final product is tested to ensure that it is purer than multifloral honey – where the bees mainly visit the Manuka bush but also venture out to other plants too. Two of four chemical markers essential for the honey to be classed as Manuka must be of a higher level in monofloral honey than multifloral honey.
The mighty Manuka bush is to thank for Manuka honey. It is found in rural pastures of New Zealand, where bees pollinate the ancient bush. It has been used by indigenous Maoris for more than 4000 years for its medicinal properties. Nowadays, Manuka honey is used all over the world and is quite famous in the health world for its antibacterial properties. People like to use it as an alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners in foods and drinks, but it can also just be taken straight off the spoon as a healthy diet supplement.
Suffering from a sore throat? Stir a spoon into tea or warm water and drink to relieve those hard-to-shift tickly coughs and sore throats. You can use it just like you would normal runny honey that you get from the supermarket. Let it soak into your morning oats, trickle it over yoghurt and granola or try mixing it into a marinade.
All before it leaves New Zealand, every batch of this Manuka honey is put through rigorous testing in a laboratory to make sure it meets the required quality parameters. This is to ensure that you are getting consistent quality and feel assured that you’re receiving genuine Manuka honey – there’s a lot of fakes out there! You can even find out which beekeeper it came from.
