How do I know SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is genuine?

Authenticity, Purity, Quality

1.Proof it is genuine Manuka Honey

  • Manuka honey is made up of several compounds that are found only in the honey from New Zealand's native manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium)
  • One of the most dominant compounds is Leptosperin
  • Leptosperin is a very good indicator of the "manukaness" of honey
  • The higher the level of Leptosperin the greater the presence of the unique manuka honey attributes
  • SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey has Leptosperin level 558mg/kg and thoroughly exceeds the NZ MPI criteria for monofloral manuka honey showing it is genuine high grade monofloral manuka honey.   All our honey is produced by our bees from manuka areas which we own and in which we have had hives for the past 40 years. 

2. It is not adulterated

  • HMF increases when honey is heated. 
  • UMF Manuka Honey must have HMF less than 40mg/kg
  • SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey has HMF level HMF24mg/kg showing we do not damage our honey with heat or adulteration

3. Testing for UMF grading levels:

  • Manuka Honey is tested for DHA and for methyglyoxal (MG) as these are present in Manuka Honey and help assess the grading level of the honey
  • The combined results of all four tests (Leptosperin test + MG test + DHA test + HMF test) indicate the quality, "manukaness" and the grading level for the honey
  • SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey far exceeds all quality requirements.  It is graded UMF18.9 and Leptosperin 558mg/kg and MG754mg/kg and HMF24mg/kg
