Raw, primal sweetness has never been as dreamy as Primal by Nature’s Mānuka honey. As one of the most famous honey varieties in the world, Mānuka honey is known for its very unique properties, but a lot of people are yet to try the environmentally-conscious line of Mānuka honey offered by Primal by Nature. 

As the perfect introduction to prepare your senses, this blog will explore the many luxuries of Primal by Nature’s exceptional raw Mānuka honey. From the sweet decadence of the taste to the caramel-like texture, you’ll be filling your basket with our premium Mānuka honey by the end of this article. 

Does Mānuka Honey Taste Sweet? 

While all honey has a distinctive signature taste, there are various tones and notes within monofloral Mānuka honey. This decadent treat has been noted for its subtle earthy flavour compared to more conventional kinds of honey like clover. 

Additionally, there is a subtle creaminess to Mānuka honey that is far more prevalent than multifloral varieties. An untouched gift from nature, Mānuka honey delivers on every aspect of heavenly flavour. There are even nutty notes that are also coupled with a bitter flavour to offer a layered experience of sweetness and earthy tastes. 

Stronger methylglyoxal (MGO) and higher UMF™ grades have shown that Mānuka honey gets noticeably darker as the strength increases. 

Why Is Mānuka Honey So Viscous And Thick? 

You may think that Mānuka honey being hard means it’s poor quality. This is not true, a viscous or thick Mānuka honey is actually the sign of a genuine product, and it is likely a monofloral variety. 

Honey fans will typically refer to Mānuka honey as a thixotropic substance or one that is extremely thick or viscous. However, as this is a product solely derived from nature and remains untouched until the jar is opened, there will be variations in the texture. 

Although the texture can be changed depending on the harvest alone, there have also been observations that the MGO or UMF™ level will alter the viscosity of the product. Lower MGO levels have been shown to produce thicker honey, while the exceptionally high MGO honey is surprisingly thinner. The high level of MGO relates to the potency and has been suggested to have unique properties. 

Does Mānuka Honey Have A Unique Smell? 

Honey, on the whole, has a characteristic smell that reminds people of everything from childhood to delicious food. However, Mānuka honey has been noted for having a more distinctive aroma. The popular Honey Traveler website described this gift from nature as “aromatic with damp earth and heather notes and a cool menthol (or eucalyptus) taste and rich flavour of mineral, barley, sugar and herbs.” 

Are There Other Products That Include Mānuka Honey? 

Just like Winnie The Pooh, many people love eating Mānuka honey straight from the jar. However, you may also be interested to add or purchase items that include Mānuka honey.

As a conscientious and environmentally-sustainable brand, we also encourage customers to get creative with their premium Mānuka honey jars. Some have noticed that Mānuka honey makes for an excellent addition to your natural skincare routine. Certain skincare companies have introduced Mānuka honey as an ingredient, but why not use it straight from the source and enjoy the unadulterated luxury of nature’s finest on your skin?
