Taku Manuka Honey UMF®
It is produced only in New Zealand and is well known for having desirable health properties.
UMF® rating system:
The Unique Manuka Factor (UMF®) rating is extremely important when comparing manuka honey. Most authentic manuka honey is sold under the UMF® trademark. The UMF® grading system appraises natural markers found in manuka honey and assures purity and quality. Each Taku Honey UMF® manuka honey jar states its level of naturally occurring methylglyoxal (MG).
MG has been identified as one of the main organic compounds responsible for the stable anti-bacterial activity for which manuka honey has become globally renowned. Taku Honey states the MG content of its honey, as well as its UMF® level, so that direct comparisons can be made with other manuka honeys that show MG content on their labels. Products claiming to be manuka honey but showing neither a UMF® nor an MG rating are unlikley to be genuine.
Unique batch track system:
Taku Honey applies a QR code to each jar of its honey. Scan the QR code for information including:
Harvest, extraction and packing details
Cultural and historical information about the land from which the honey was harvested
Laboratory test results pertaining to that particular batch of honey
