This Manuka Honey contains low levels of MG. Our 30+ grading system means it contains more than 30mg per kg of Methylglyoxal (MG).
Manuka honey is a monofloral honey collected by our honeybees from the Manuka flower. The honeybees collect and transform the nectar of the Manuka plant into honey by combining various digestive enzymes through a unique process. This naturally sweet Manuka Honey is rich in natural antioxidants and antibacterial properties.
Nelson Honey’s Honeydew is dark in colour, with a similar taste to golden syrup or treacle. This runny honey does not crystallise in cooler temperatures and is delicious with plain yoghurt, on toast, in drinks (smoothies!) or with your cereal each morning. Nelson Honey mainly collect their Honeydew Honey from the pristine Nelson Lakes area inland from Nelson City where the environment is clean and natural and unaffected by pollution.
Honeydew Honey contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides which research shows may support and strengthen good intestinal bacteria and digestive functions. These Oligosaccharides may be especially beneficial to people suffering from colitis or those taking antibiotics which are renowned for killing all the good bacteria in the intestinal tract. Honeydew Honey also contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other floral honeys.
