Our 309 Honeys have endless applications, but here are some ideas for how we like to use each honey.
Native Bush Honey
Comes from the unique surrounding native bush that the Coromandel is famous for. It varies, but is generally made from nectar foraged from Mānuka, Kanuka, Rata, Rewarewa, Five finger. This gives it a complex floral flavour. Excellent as a refined sugar substitute in baking or cooking.
The most famous honey in the world. Widely known for its health benefits and strong malty flavour. The intensity of this flavour grows with the MGO levels. We have 3 different categories of Mānuka each with a different MGO rating and different recommended uses.
What is MGO?
Mānuka Honey has higher levels of enzymes and antibacterial properties than found in other honey. Methylglyoxal is it’s active ingredient and is responsible for these antibacterial effects. As registered exporters, 309 Honey meets the highest MPI standards . Each Honey is tested to ensure true MGO levels and optimum quality. Enjoy.
