[Amazon.ca] (OOS) New Zealand Honey Co. UMF 15+ Manuka Honey (500 grams) $48.87

Not familiar with this brand, but it seems legit and a really good price if so. Fulfilled by Amazon.

Ordered two to try.

I don't usually comment like such but when it comes to products like honey, I would encourage people to check out local honey farms. There are a lot of local honey farms and it would mean a big deal to support them. That and you really know the people and the place that the honey is made from. I"m in BC and there are quite a few, I would imaging there are plenty of honey farms to choose from in the east coast as well.

This is not typical honey...please down down vote if you do not understand what it is. This is know for many health benefits that are not attributable to local honey.

For regular honey, yes I totally agree. But for those looking for Manuka honey for it's enhanced antibacterial properties, this seems to be a great price. You eat this honey straight. Don't add it to tea or other foods. That would be a waste.

Can you substantiate this marketing claim?

Thanks OP.
I was able to get an order in, but now it looks like it's unavailable in the 500 g size.

Costco has New Zealand Manuka honey for $56.99,
I think it’s more than 500gm.

It appears to be a lower quality than this deal in terms of MGO and UMF.

It's the Comvita (registered manuka brand) 5+ UMF and it comes in a 1kg jar for 57 bucks. They had it on sale a couple of weeks ago 10$ off. This is what they sell at Costco https://www.amazon.ca/Manuka-Honey-New- ... 05&sr=8-28
This one is 15+ UMF so a higher content and a great deal if it is what they claim it is. I have not tried the brand before.

MGO is just another measure for the active ingredients, UMF is the most used scale by the certified brands. Basically inches vs cm, in layman's terms.

5+ UMF has no benefits beyond regular honey that cost $10

15+ should be good, no wonder it's sold out.

I don't see how that is. You can buy 250g of honey at 15+ and I buy 1kg of honey at 5+ for the same price or cheaper. If I consume X3 or x4 times the amount of the 5+ vs consuming 1x of the 15+, why wouldn't I get the same benefits ?

Absolutely no science behind any of the claims.

Appreciate your comments about local honey. I sell local at a farmers market in Ottawa and never make any health claims about my honey though some of my customers feel that it helps with allergies. I always tell people that you should buy it because it tastes good and anything else is a benefit. Having said that, kudos to the NZ Honey Marketing Board for an awesome selling job :)
