Regular honey is a great source of energy and has many outstanding properties, the distinction among normal honey and Mānuka honey is the presence of naturally occurring MGO Methylglyoxal, which measures the anti-microbial activity. Mānuka Honey can measure the extent of MGO and this stays stable for the duration of its shelf life, this is unique to Mānuka Honey.
Melora® share percentages of honey sales between Mānuka resources owners, beekeepers and the honey processing company. By using a fair share benchmark that is higher than the industry standard, we are able to continually support landowners to guard, protect and nurture Mānuka plants, leading to a sustainable future together. Our Ethical Honey Harvesting programme also sets out clear quality policies and procedures for all harvest and apiary operators working with us. The aim of this programme is to protect the bees and hives from risk of contamination, to protect the environment during harvesting and to keep our people safe through the process.
We are a part of the UMFHA – our membership number is 2015 and may be located at the Unique Mānuka Factor Honey Association website.
As the seasons change, our bodies also undergo changes in rhythm with nature. Some of you might notice yourself becoming a little more tired than usual during the day, or you may feel a little bit under the weather with the shifts in temperature.
Essential oils are rapidly growing in popularity because they offer a natural health alternative. This is especially the case with Mānuka oil which is produced from the native New Zealand tree, naturally extracted to retain the maximum antibacterial properties.
Here at Melora, we are all about keeping it natural and healthy eating. Swapping out that spoonful of sugar for an equal sized spoonful of honey is the ultimate way to satisfy your sweet tooth and fend off those sugar cravings.
