Manuka labels can be so confusing! But I'm going to try and demystify that for you. Let's start with mono-floral and multi-floral manuka.
Mono-floral honey comes from a single flower source. Mono-floral manuka honey means that the bees predominately foraged on manuka flowers, therefore it's a more pure manuka honey.
Muti-flora honey is from a mix of flower sources. For a manuka honey to be labeled as 'multi-floral manuka it means that there are other floral sources in the honey as well as manuka.
This year our bees feasted on manuka and kanuka at our Four Brothers Reserves apiary site and the honey has been tested as a multi-floral manuka with an MG104 activity. Check it out.
We also have a mono-floral Ohui Manuka honey with an MG139 activity. Check that out.
More on what the 'activity' ratings mean in my next blog post.
