Now more potent and lightly creamed for your enjoyment, you're going to love our new Australian Manuka honey range that is bioactive by nature.
Our bioactive Manuka honey is sourced from the flowering plant species of Leptospermum that are native to Australia and New Zealand. The indigenous people from both lands have been using Manuka in their traditional medicines for centuries. Understanding Activity Levels Active Manuka Honey is sold with varying levels of antibacterial activity.
The commonly used NPA rating relates to the increasing antibacterial inhibition effect of the honey on cultured bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus), in comparison to what phenol achieves. Phenol is a strong organic compound that has clear antibacterial effects, providing a stable standard for comparison purposes.
At Barnes Naturals, we use the most accurate method of measuring the honeys activity, by testing for the chemical Methylglyoxal (MGO) to establish the honeys antibacterial properties. MGO is the strength and energy within Manuka honey and is what makes it effective for health and wellbeing. Each batch of our Australian Manuka is independently tested through a third party laboratory to ensure authenticity and activity.
