Item Description

250 g (8.8oz) Tasmanian Manuka Honey from Charles Blue Hills Honey in Tasmania, Australia.

Methylglyoxl 30+ mg/kg

The manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium)is found in remote parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. It is only found in Australia and New Zealand. Indeed, Evidence suggests that L. scopariumoriginated in Australia before the onset of the Miocene aridity, and dispersed relatively recently from eastern Australia to New Zealand.

While processed honey, including that derived from the manuka bush, has been produced in Tasmania since European bees were introduced here in the early 1830s, there is alsodocumented evidence back to 1884 for the term Manuka being produced in Tasmania.

Manuka honey has long been reputed for its antibacterial properties. Indeed, in 2006, the naturally occurring compound, Methylglyoxal, was identified as the dominant antibacterial constituent of manuka honey.Our family takes great care to ensure the purity of our manuka honey, and its Methylglyoxal content has been measured and labelled on this jar.

Enjoyed for its eating quality as well as its other benefits, manuka honey has a strong, earthy flavour.

A portion of the proceeds of this item directly benefits the Foothill Class of 2019.
