Manuka MED is a unique, New Zealand monofloral honey. It is obtained from the flower of the autochthonous plant manuka bush (lat. Leptospermum scoparium) containing a high proportion of methychlyglioxal (MGO).
It has an excellent taste - native Maori have been using it for various purposes for centuries. This honey is specific because of its aromatic smell and taste, but primarily because of its unique composition, which has been confirmed in a number of scientific studies. Specifically, manuka honey contains methylopexal, a substance attributed to strong antibacterial action.
