Selecting Manuka Honey for Its Special Properties - Protecting Your Rights as a Consumer

Protecting Your Rights as a Consumer

UMF is a quality trademark and grading system identifying natural unadulterated manuka honey that has the special unique natural attributes found only in some strains of manuka honey.  The UMF mark was devised to help consumers identify the type of manuka honey that has the special unique qualities referred to in the research.  Click here for more about Testing for Authenticity

  1. Look for the name UMF and its grading level clearly displayed on the front label. The name UMF guarantees the honey has the special qualities referred to in the research.
  2. Select a high UMF rating. UMF5 is the minimum.  Most research has used manuka honey with a grading UMF12 and higher.
  3. For wound care select medical grade Manuka Honey that has been specially prepared for wound care. (Antibacterial Wound Gel -supporting your body's natural healing)
  4. UMF Manuka Honey must be packed in New Zealand and every batch tested after packing. The term Product of New Zealand does not necessarily mean the honey has been packed in New Zealand.

Most Important: UMF Manuka Honey & Active Manuka Honey are NOT THE SAME. 

  • Originally manuka honey which had the extra property was known as Active Manuka Honey (and is often referred to by this name in the research papers and articles).  However, the name "Active" is now being used by many to refer to the enzyme property which is found in most honeys. 
  • The word "Active" does not indicate the honey has the special unique manuka property. 
  • The word "Active" often refers to the Total Activity rating for which the activity is mainly due to the enzymes in honey, an activity found in most honeys. 
  • There is no independent auditing and monitoring of honey called Active Manuka Honey nor of Manuka Honey with any descriptive other than that labelled with the trademark UMF.
  • Great care needs to be taken when selecting honey - make sure it is genuine UMF Manuka Honey - and make sure the activity is above UMF10.
