  • Manuka Honey

    Hi, need advice from anyone who drink Manuka Honey, please describe your experience.

    Which is the most popular brand sold locally ? I have checked with Honeyworld, a Raw Active Manuka UMF 20+ for 1 kg selling S$275.

    Do I go for UMF 15+ and above ?

      Thanks v m for your news.

      ROC Forumers out there, please beware.

      Found this article in English :

      Britain's Food Standards Agency has issued a nationwide warning about misleading and illegal claims on the labels of New Zealand honey, after tests revealed many manuka honey products have none of the claimed active properties.
      The honey industry is estimated to be worth $120 million a year to New Zealand.
      The New Zealand Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association, which represents New Zealand manuka honey processing companies, says it is well known that New Zealand sells more manuka honey than it produces, but the industry has failed to deal with that.
      Association head John Rawcliffe says a crackdown on the fake manuka had to happen.
      He says after much delay, his organisation has come up with a testing regime that will help consumers identify the real thing from a fake.
      Mr Rawcliffe says it is a pity the association was not more proactive earlier, but collecting samples and testing is costly.
      He says the association is now working with other countries to put in the appropriate testing and will be authenticating that testing this summer.
      A spokesperson for the Ministry for Primary Industries says it will come up with a definition of manuka honey that is internationally agreed on and backed up by robust science.

                  Have been taking manuka honey daily since 5 years ago.
                  The higher UMF, the better it is and of cos more ex.
                  Manuka Honey is good for gastric, sore throat and cough. However, need min. UMF 13+ to be effective...
                  I am very prone to having sore throat and so I started to take 1 teaspoon every morning.. It has then improved my condition and nowadays, I merely had sore throat once or twice a year and each time won't last more than 2 days...

                    advice from someone at the counter... manuka is good esp after rrecuperating from illness or stuff.. but recommends nothing above 15+ for adults... those above 15+ is for ppl with more serious illness or condition.

                      Hi,

                      I usually get the UMF 25+ and above. They supposedly build your immune system and I use it daily (non-metal spoon of course).

                      I recommend buying from New Zealand, its about half the price than in SG.

                          Man... you asume that if you pay premium for NZ Manuka honey you get just that!! this new changes everything... like when I got a bezel insert on my vintage 5513 that just did not look quite right!! very dissapointed.

                            not true.. the manuka honey from NZ itself is quite cheap.. took it for awhile but did not find any noticeable difference in my health... probably cos I do too many other unhealthy things... hahaha...

                              overpriced... the price outweights the nutrition value
