As one of New Zealand’s most precious substances, Manuka honey truly is a natural gift from Mother Nature. There are several reasons why this creamy liquid gold has gained a reputation around the world, but the raw and pure nature of Manuka honey is a big one. 

Natural Health practices are increasingly growing in popularity. Statistics have shown that more people are looking for alternative medicine means - particularly within the natural world. This blog will outline what precisely raw Manuka honey is and how it differentiates itself from processed or pasteurised honey. Once you further your knowledge, you’ll be able to appreciate the primal potential of one of the world’s rarest honey. 

What Does Raw Manuka Honey Mean? 

Raw Manuka honey is the purest form of New Zealand’s most famous honey. Coming straight from the honeycomb and into the jar, raw Manuka honey must have minimal or no processing. Any “processing” that would take place should only be slight blending to remove clumps. 

When raw monofloral Manuka honey is harvested from remote locations throughout New Zealand, it’s transported back to a very conscientious and well-equipped facility that maintains the primal purity of the product. As a very adaptable substance, raw Manuka honey can be used for several different purposes, including daily energy boosts, cooking, skincare, wound care and more!

What Is The Process of Pasteurisation in Manuka Honey? 

It’s quite easy to tell which Manuka honey is raw purely from the label. It will have “raw” mentioned somewhere, otherwise, you can safely assume that the honey has been pasteurised. This is process by which the Manuka honey is heated to high temperatures, sometimes upwards of 70 degrees celsius. This extreme heat destroys any of the present yeast. 

Once the yeast has been removed, the honey is then rapidly cooled and filtered into jars. Filtering is typically done to eliminate the impurities of the honey. Although this seems like a cleaner alternative, filtering the honey too much has been shown to remove some of the key nutrients and elements. One of these key elements includes the bee pollen which has been reported to assist with the superfood boost of Manuka honey. 

It’s easier to get honey into jars if it is pasteurised; however, the honey will risk losing many beneficial bacteria, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals if it is processed. It’s also important to know that honey does not need to be pasteurised to be eaten, it can be eaten straight from the honeycomb. 

Is There A Difference In Taste Between Raw and Pasteurised Honey? 

Raw, natural Manuka honey is noted for its exquisite flavour. A creamy reminder of the beauty that can be delivered by this planet. Raw Manuka honey features a viscous integrity that is almost like caramel and is naturally granulated - loaded with the vitamins and minerals that can help with the body’s functions. 

Nothing is more satisfying than purchasing honey that you know has gone directly from the hive to your home. Make sure to enjoy the bountiful taste and heavenly texture of raw Manuka honey.
