What is UMF and how it relates to Manuka Honey?
UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) is formally a test designed by Dr Peter Molan (University of Waikato, NZ) to determine the antibacterial properties of Manuka Honey. The UMF numbers come from a standard laboratory test of antibacterial activity, with honey being compared with a standard antiseptic (phenol) for potency. For example, honey with a UMF rating of 4 would be equivalent to the antiseptic potency of 4% solution of phenol, a carbolic disinfectant; honey with a rating of 10 would have a potency equivalent to a 10% solution of phenol.All honey generally have antibacterial property, due to their hydrogen peroxide formed by the enzyme glucose oxidase present in honey. Nevertheless, the potency of their antibacterial property may vary from one to another due to various factors such as exposure to heat, light, seasons of honey collection, location of bee farms, or dilution with other ingredients or others. It is said that higher UMF level is used for treatment of ailment such as skin wounds that do not response to conventional therapy, and medical staffs do also use it for few other indications. Nevertheless, Dr Peter Molan did mention in one of his article that:"None of the results being obtained clinically should be considered evidence that active manuka honey is more effective than other honey - a comparative clinical trial will be needed to establish that." Generally, all unblended 100% Manuka honey do contain a lower rate of UMF activity in the region of 4-9%. Apart from its antibacterial properties, Manuka honey is also well known for its contents of amino acids, good enzymes, and vitamins and minerals that are good for overall health. It is difficult to determine the quality of Manuka honey from other brands, but we would like to assure you that our Manuka Honey is certified as 100% Manuka Honey by our suppliers. Therefore, apart from being a delicious honey to be taken together as a spread, or to mix with drinks, it does contain many more health benefits directly from nature to us.
