  • New Zealand mānuka honey contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities corresponding to MGO and Leptosperin, giving it value over traditional honeys.
  • Quality is measured by UMFTM while purity depends on Leptospermum scoparium nectar content.
  • Mono-floral is more valuable than multi-floral honey and value decreases when manuka honey is diluted with honeys from other nectar sources.
  • Honey varies between and across all of regions, sites, apiaries, beehives and honey frames.
  • Dilution may be by bee or by man. During extraction, rich and lean frames are lumped together.
  • Quality assessment of honey in-frame could help prevent mixing of rich honey with lean.
  • Current chromatography-based methods are too slow and expensive to evaluate frame by frame.
