Manuka Honey Blend

The blend of manuka and kanuka plants have been used historically by Maori and the early European settlers for medicinal purposes. These include the use of the bark as a poultice, for colds, flu, and stomach aches. Both plants are also called "tea tree" from the practice of making a tea from the leaves. It should be noted however that no published research shows a significant therapeutic benefit from ingesting manuka, honey. The Manuka honey blend is dark colored, strongly flavored with a herbal, woody characteristic and it is usually highly thixotropic (jelly-like) in appearance like the heather honey in Europe. Manuka honey has an average glucose concentration of 29.7%, fructose of 37.9%, maltose of 1.2% and sucrose of 0.5%.
