Manuka (Jelly Bush)
Last year, we brought a luxury range of Australian raw, mono-floral honey to the international market and we’re pleased to announce the introduction of our Australian Manuka honey for 2017.
Unlike New Zealand Manuka honey, our Australian Manuka Jelly Bush variety has no medicinal taste, is sweet and fragrant, yet still possesses the powerful antibacterial health benefits.
Pure delicious Manuka honey from Australia
A few of the known health benefits of Manuka honey include:
- STIMULATES HEALING, REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND MINIMISES SCARRING
- HELPS FIGHT SORE THROAT RELATED BACTERIA AND STOMACH ULCERS
- ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES CAN IMPROVE IMMUNITY AND ENERGY LEVELS
- CAN ASSIST IN REDUCING RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS
What makes our Manuka honey different?
A delicious sweet taste
Unlike most Manuka honey, Gustare’s Manuka (Jelly Bush) has a luxurious, delicious sweet taste. There is no medicinal flavour, which is typically present in other Manuka Honeys, so our premium honey can be used as a tasty spread, an accompaniment to recipes or a sweet addition to beverages.
Despite its premium nature, our Manuka is surprisingly affordable when compared to other Manukas on the market. Which is specifically appealing to customers who are either new to Manuka or those who are seeking a tastier variety while maintaining quality health and well-being benefits.
Our suppliers are all B-Qual certified
Our suppliers are all B-Qual certified. At a time when there is concern about fake Manuka honey products being marketed, the B-Qual process certifies the production and provenance of our honey and offers independent certification tracking the jar back to the hive and guaranteed single source location – which is in Australia of course.
Guaranteed high quality, premium honey
Stored in temperature-controlled facilities to protect the activity levels in the honey, our consumers have the reassurance that they are purchasing a high quality, premium honey. Efficient manufacturing ensures that each drop of our Manuka honey is bottled in a glass jar, so there is no possibility of chemical leaching.
Following the launch of this Manuka honey variety, Gustare will be offering Australian Manuka honey in higher NPA and MGO grades to suit the pharmaceutical market
The Scientific Stuff
Our new Australian Manuka (Jelly Bush) honey has been tested by Dr Peter Brooks, Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia and is also a member of the Oz Honey Project’s research team. The tests proved that this particular variety has NPA (a Non-Peroxide Activity) rating of 5.1 and MGO (Methylglyoxal) rating of 86.
Australian Manuka honey is relatively new to the global market. Like New Zealand’s renowned Manuka honey, the Australian equivalents are derived from the Leptospermum plant species and have similar health benefits.
New scientific research by the Oz Honey Project, has proven that the anti-bacterial activity level (measured as UMF®/NPA and MGO) in Australian Manuka honey is at least as high as in the better known New Zealand Manuka honey.
We have a range of products available in two jar sizes, including 250g and 400g.
We’re proud to use a Soil Association and BRC certified packer for all our products, which provides retailers and consumers alike with quality assurance.
