How to eat Manuka Honey correctly?
Eat UMF Manuka Honey directly, for the best health boost.
Take 1 tablespoon 2-3 times a day, before meal.
You may like to drink some water after that to wash down the honey.
Do NOT use a metal spoon as honey has an acidic pH and reacts with metallic surface. This reaction may damage and reduce the healing properties of honey.
Honestly, using a metal spoon is usually alright. You are dipping and scooping the honey out and the metal will only touch the honey for less than 2 seconds. This has negligible effects. It is only a big no-no to leave a metal spoon in a jar of honey overnight.
For peace of mind, you can just stick to using any wooden, ceramic, or plastic spoons.
New Zealanders beekeepers knows that excellent manuka honey is thick and if you can eat it like ice cream, then it is high quality manuka honey.
Hence, New Zealanders take their manuka honey straight from the spoon, and do not mix it with water. Manuka honey is usually thicker and takes a longer time to mix with water than normal honey. Just scoop it up and eat it.
Many parents like to give manuka honey to their children who may not like to eat it direct. You can mix it as a drink for the kids. Mix with room temperature, cold or warm water (Not too hot) to dissolve it, bear in mind that it is thicker and harder to dissolve.
If you like to mix it with toast or crackers as breakfast or snacks, feel free to try.
