Wildcape Manuka Honey, UMF Certified

WildCape Manuka Honey is the only single source UMF™ Manuka honey harvested exclusively from the untouched East Cape region.

Geographically isolated by the Raukumara Ranges to the West, the East Cape of New Zealand has remained sparsely populated and unspoiled. The region still has large tracts of virgin forest and a drive along the coast reveals endless untouched sweeping sandy beaches.

Often regarded as producing some of the finest WildCape Manuka Honey in New Zealand, the East Cape region’s Manuka flowers produce nectar that is naturally high in Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a precursor to the compound Methylglyoxal (MGO). The result is WildCape Manuka Honey with consistently higher UMF™ – and more natural goodness for you to enjoy.

WildCape Manuka Honey Quality and Authenticity

UMF™ stands for Unique Manuka Factor and was established by the UMF WildCape Manuka Honey Association of New Zealand (www.umf.org.nz), of which WildCape is a member (Licence # 1075).

The UMF™ grading system appraises natural markers found in wildcape Manuka Honey and assures purity and quality. Unlike other grading systems which measure just one or two markers, only the UMF™ testing process measures all three unique signature compounds, Leptosperin, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), and Methylglyoxal (MGO) present in high-quality, authentic Manuka honey.
