From New Zealand to you
Honey is produced from the work of honey bees (Apis mellifera) that collect the nectar from the flowers, remove the water and add enzymes, changing the sugar content of the nectar and forming acids.
Honey produced mainly form the nectar of one plant is called mono floral.
Manuka honey is produced form the nectar of the manuka plant, Leptospermum scoparium, commonly called in Maori mānuka.
The manuka tree grows exclusively as a bush (2-6m height) in New Zealand and east Australia. The flowers bloom only for short period of time (6 weeks circa) between September and March.
Manuka honey differs from other honey types for its organoleptic properties: brown and creamy with a unique, slightly bitter taste, which remembers the earth and minerals.
Even though these characteristics are peculiar to manuka honey, they are not what make it so special. For years long scientist all over the world have studied the compounds present in the honey, trying to understand why the manuka honey had such special properties. In 2008 they could finally prove that manuka honey contains all the typical compounds of other honeys but also had a special bioactive one, not found in any other honey type: the Methylglyoxal (MGO) responsible of the non-peroxide activity of manuka honey.
This compounds is not present in the nectar of the manuka tree but forms during the maturation of the honey from the dehydration of another compound, the Dihydroxiacetone (DHA).
Studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between the MGO levels in the honey and its properties: the higher the MGO, the better the properties.
