The high level of "key chemicals" is what we are seeking for all this cash we are paying. Ratings of 10+ and above (10+, 15+, 20+, etc.) are highest grades of Manuka in New Zealand.
An example of "jumping the gun" is the Wedderspoon product pictured above in the middle, it seems to get good reviews on Amazon (and "seems" to be viewed by American consumers as the best Manuka available in the USA), but you will still see reviewers who make comments such as….
"The results of an analysis performed by NZLabs on two different Wedderspoon products were disclosed yesterday. The analysis included a jar labeled as Active 16+ and another jar labeled as Active 12+, both of which were found to have non-peroxide and total peroxide activity of less than 8.2 which is as low as the test goes. This suggests that the potency of the Wedderspoon Manuka Honey had to be either extremely low or nonexistent. It certainly confirms that the honeys were not of the potency that they were labeled as having.
"This is not only unethical and dishonest, it's an absolute disgrace," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International which is a U.S. importer of Manuka honey. "This type of inactive Manuka honey will not yield the same medicinal results that people have come to expect." .
"Wedderspoon has been able to get away with this deceptive and fraudulent practice because the FDA doesn't recognize honey of any kind as being an antibacterial agent. Therefore, they do not have a role in regulating the potency level of Manuka honey. Nevertheless, consumers have come to recognize the numbers indicated on the label as the potency level. Wedderspoon has twisted the general public's understanding of Manuka honey's antibacterial activity by misleading their customers into thinking that they were getting more than what they paid for"
My Note: …on Wedderspoon, is that it is "perceived" to be the top of the line, best readily available Manuka in the USA, for those who have not researched the subject and are just grabbing something off the shelf …..just an observation and opinion
Thanks for reading!
Here are some Manuka Honey Nutrition Facts:
What makes wedderspoon Manuka honey different is its amazing nutritional profile. Regular raw honey is already known for its tremendous nutritional and immune boosting abilities. Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of: (2)
Amino acidsB vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid), Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium ,Manganese, Phosphoru, potassium, Sodium and Zinc
Yet with Manuka honey, the nutritional content is up to 4 timesthat of normal flower honeys. This is what is called the Unique Manuka Factor.
Unique Manuka Factor
In 1981, researchers at the New Zealand University of Waikato discovered that Manuka honey has a considerably higher level of enzymes than regular honey. These enzymes create a natural hydrogen peroxide that works as an antibacterial. Some strains of this New Zealand honey are particularly rich in hydrogen peroxide, methylglyoxal and dihydroxyacetone.
This medicinal trilogy helps make up what is referred to as the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF), a global standard in identifying and measuring the antibacterial strength of Manuka. (3) Essentially, the UMF is a guarantee that the honey being sold is of a medicinal quality.
UMF is not found in the nectar of all Manuka flowers and, comparatively speaking, regular Manuka only contains the hydrogen peroxide antibacterial property that is common to most types of honey.
What separates UMF Manuka from other Manuka varieties is that it has both the natural hydrogen peroxide and its own natural UMF antibacterial property, which greatly enhances it effectiveness. The UMF properties of Manuka is extremely stable and, unlike the hydrogen peroxide common in most honey, is not easily destroyed by heat, light and enzymes in the body.
How to Verify Genuine UMF Manuka Honey
The minimum UMF rating recognized is UMF5, however, it is not considered beneficial unless it carries a UMF 10+ level of antibacterial activity in the honey. Anything ranging from UMF10-UMF15 is a useful level, and anything UMF16 and up is considered a superior quality.
Genuine UMF Manuka Honey will have these four things:
It will have a UMF trademark clearly labeled on the front of the container.It will be from a New Zealand UMF licensed company and labelled in New Zealand.It will have the UMF company’s name and license number on the label.It will have a UMF rating number of 5-16+. If it is labeled without the UMF or without a number, then it is not the genuine article.
According to the UMF association the UMF rating actually tests the antibacterial performance of a honey and compares it to phenol, a disinfectant. The Active Manuka Honey Association(AMHA) that does the testing states:
“The presence of the special non-peroxide activity can be detected only by an array of scientific testing directly relating to the phenol standard. The rating has a one-to-one relationship to the phenol standard. “
This means that a UMF rating of 20+ is equivalent in strength to a 20% solution of phenol. The ideal UMF rating varies depending on your purpose, but laboratory studies have shown that manuka honey with a non-peroxide activity level of UMF12 to UMF15 is effective against a wide range of very resistant bacteria.
Here is an explanation of what manuka honey UMF you should use:
4-9 Maintenance level with general honey health benefits
10-14 Supports natural healing and bacterial balance
15+ Superior levels of phenols that are highly therapeutic but shouldn’t exceed taking 1 tbsp at a time
Top 10 Manuka Honey Benefits
Manuka honey health benefits have been touted in the natural health world for a long time and even more in recent years because a growing body of research is starting to support thousands of years of folk medicine use. Some of the top Manuka honey uses are:
1. SIBO, Low Stomach Acid, Acid Reflux
Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), low stomach acid and acid reflux go hand-in-hand. Because of Manuka honey’s known natural antibiotic qualities, it is a great medicine for any bacteria related disorder. In fact, in a recent study, one dangerous bacteria related to all three conditions, Clostridium difficult was found to be quite susceptible to Manuka honey’s bactericidal effects. (4) So taking Manuka honey is very beneficial at reducing reflux and balancing your digestive system to heal stomach and intestinal imbalances.
2. Acne and Eczema
The Internet is filled with patient testimonials that Manuka honey works marvelously for acne and eczema patients. At this time there are no clinical trials to support these claims, but this doesn’t bother me at all. Taking into account its proven antimicrobial and healing properties, it makes every bit of sense to assume that honey can help with these skin conditions. Most people claim that applying honey on affected areas for a few minutes, and then washing off with gentle soap and water usually does the trick. Repeat this every day or every other day for the best results!
3. Staph Infections (MRSA)
You’ve probably heard of the super bug that has plagued hospitals the past several years, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (or MRSA). What has happened is that antibiotic overuse and drug ineffectiveness has caused certain strains of Staph to become virtually indefensible using typical hospital and nursing home medical protocols. Spreading so rapidly, most people affected by MRSA end up getting so infected that they require invasive procedures or devices such as surgeries, artificial joints or intervenes tubing to save their lives (5)
This past March, however, UK researchers from Cardiff Metropolitan University have offered us some natural hope. They discovered thatManuka honey down-regulates the most potent genes of the MRSA bacteria. Some scientists now suggest that regular topical use on cuts and infections (especially in the hospital and nursing home setting) may keep MRSA naturally at bay.
4. Burns, Wounds & Ulcers
According to a recent article in theJundishapur Journal of Natural Pharmaceutical Products, “The use of honey leads to improved wound healing in acute cases, pain relief in burn patients and decreased inflammatory response in such patients.” (6) Moreover, because of its rich anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory characteristics, Manuka honey has been shown to prevent infection in people with venous ulcers. (7) It has also been used quite effectively as a wound dressing to promote rapid, improved healing.
5. Tooth Decay & Gingivitis
Several studies have come out recently describing how Manuka honey can help cure gingivitis and periodontal disease. Due to its superior antimicrobial properties, researchers from the School of Dentistry, University of Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand) discovered that chewing or sucking on a Manuka honey product not only caused a 35% decrease in plaque, it led to a 35% reduction in bleeding sites in people suffering from gingivitis! (8) Also calcium, zinc, and phosphorus are all important nutrients for healing teeth.
6. IBS and IBD
When evaluating the effect that Manuka honey has on experimentally induced inflammatory bowel disease in rats, researchers from Chandigarh Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research discovered several astounding findings: (9)
Manuka honey at different doses provided protection against TNBS-induced colonic damage.There was significant protection with Manuka honey 5 g/kg as well as with 10 g/kg body weight compared with the control.All the treated groups showedreduced colonic inflammation and all the biochemical parameters were significantly reduced compared with the control in the Manuka honey treated groups.Manuka honey at different dosesrestored lipid peroxidation as well as improved antioxidant parameters. Morphological and histological scores were significantly reduced in the low dose Manuka honey treated group.In the inflammatory model of colitis, oral administration of Manuka honey 5 g/kg and Manuka honey 10 g/kg body weight significantly reduced the colonic inflammation.
So Manuka honey not only healed intestinal inflammation and pain, but also repaired free radical damage, and protected against further damage!
7. Sore Throats and Immunity
In 2007, data published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggested that, “A 5.8-kDa component of Manuka honey stimulates immune cells via TLR4.” (10) This is interesting because previous studies have indicated that honey stimulates cytokine production from human monocytes.
Coupling with this 2011 research showing how Manuka stops the growth of sore throat-causing Strepbacteria, it is no wonder that so many people benefit almost instantly from taking a spoonful of honey when they don’t feel well. (11) And recently it has even been approved by the National Cancer Institute to be used to heal inflammation in the throat from chemotherapy!
8. Allergies and Sinusitis
There are many anecdotal accounts of people receiving allergy relief after eating honey are all over the internet. There is even a study with honey and birch pollen that had remarkable results. The participants were given regular honey, honey with birch pollen added to it, and some used only their allergy medicines as a control group. The results were impressive:
“…patients reported a 60% lower total symptom score, twice as many asymptomatic days, and 70% fewer days with severe symptoms, and they used 50% less antihistamines compared to the control group.”
They also found that there was very little difference between the birch pollen honey users and the regular honey users! So, taking Manuka honey on a regular basis can really help your seasonal allergies and lessen your need for medications!(12)
9. Beauty Treatment & Health Booster
Taken daily Manuka honey has an elixir effect that boosts energy and enhances your quality of life.Because of its nutrient dense profile, it boosts vitality, youthful energy, and has been known to improve skin tone and texture.
Use it in a homemade face wash to exfoliate and fight free radicals in the skin. Use it in your shampoo or a hair mask, to boost the shine of your hair. One of my favorite uses is in a detox drink, to get the most benefits inside and out!
10. Improves Sleep
Manuka Honey helps to promote restful deep sleep. It slowly releases the glycogen needed for essential bodily functions during sleep. Adding honey to milk at bedtime helps the body release melatonin into the brain which is necessary for deep sleep.
There are many health disorders associated with poor sleep such as, heart disease, type II diabetes, stroke, and arthritis. Since honey is proven to aid in quality sleep; it also helps lower the risk of these and many other heath problems.
This raw Manuka honey gets 5 stars and a strong recommendation to buy as it has help me and my family in soooo many ways.

Top international reviews
The premium commanded by this brand relies on deceptive advertising practices. Lawsuits have been filed against Wedderspoon in the U.S. for precisely these reasons.
The honey tastes great, I give it that, but if you are here to buy it for the medicinal properties of Manuka Honey, then this product should not be on your watchlist.
Please note, this is only one part of my skin care routine, using ONLY this honey won’t magically make acne go away.
I am not sure though about it being fake or not, but I have a really strong doubt.
I have added both the YouTube(subtitles one) and my (jar) honey’s picture.
I would recommend you not to buy such things from amazon as the sellers here sell the products, not the amazon itself.
Since I m a doctor and had done a study on manuka honey which I got directly from New Zealand it was thicker darker and original with high Unique Manuka Factor (UMF)
This time I ordered 2 bottles from amazon and it appears to be not original fake different in taste and quality without any UMF factor.
It's not expected from amazon for such fake products which s far from customer expectations.
Great for colds
Great for health
Manuka honey is expensive but I don't think you could beat this price.
I have used it on steam burns on skin and skin tags that over time and persistence have disappeared. I would highly recommend this product for everyone of all ages over two. Even just to build your immune system by putting some in your daily tea is good.
Con: This honey is so good, creamy and fabulous I just hate half the jar and I received it 2hours ago!
I would definitely recommend.
