Why raw manuka honey?

Raw manuka honey is exactly as nature intended Manuka Honey; pure, raw, unprocessed, unpasteurized and unheated. Vitamins, minerals and nutrients remain intact, contains a higher natural enzyme content and high amino acid profile, thicker consistency, slightly grainy texture, incredible aromas and natural flavor profile.


By following the cutting-edge research of Dreden University of Technology led by Professor Thomas Henle, MNZ is able to produce high-quality monofloral MGO Manuka Honey in New Zealand using made from the natural properties of bioactive substances that occur exclusively in the New Zealand native flora and fauna. MNZ closely follows leading scientific research publications from the Netherlands, Japan, the US, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, among others.

With MNZ you are assured of guaranteed and trusted quality. MNZ develop, produce and market the products themselves to ensure they maintain control over quality at every step of the process. All honey we use must meet our strict quality and safety standards to ensure that levels of bioactive compounds are maintained. Our extensive system allows us to trace everything from beehive to finished product. Each batch is tested in the ISO 17025 certified laboratory to measure the levels of diastasis, DHA, HMF and methylglyoxal and to check the contents before processing at our RMP certified facility in New Zealand.

MNZ’s Manuka Honeys are 100% natural raw monofloral Manuka Honeys exclusively from New Zealand. MNZ produces, processes and packages all its raw monofloral Manuka Honey in New Zealand. MNZ tests all its raw monofloral manuka honey for Methylglyoxal (MGO), Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) levels, color, conductivity, taste, aroma, presence of the Manuka type pollen, moisture content and microbiological parameters. To produce a wide product range of monofloral MGO Manuka Honey, which are characterized by quality, innovation and high grade properties resulting from the pure nature of New Zealand, the latest technical and scientific developments and insights are used to create the high grade properties, including to substantiate the characteristic New Zealand bio-activities with science.

100% New Zealand; 100% reliable, 100% measurable, 100% original, 100% raw!

MNZ uses the discoveries made by Professor Thomas Henle and his team. Professor Henle and his team discovered that Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the ingredient in Manuka Honey. This certification system, measuring for the presence of Methylglyoxal (MGO) and the quantity, is the result of research at the Institute of Food Chemistry at the Technical University of Dresden in Germany under the direction of Professor Thomas Henle. Professor Henle and his team were the first to document that the compound primarily responsible for the non-peroxide activity of Manuka Honey was Methylglyoxal. As of 2006, the “unique manuka factor” was no longer unknown and is now known as MGO. Testing for the activity of Methylglyoxal (MGO) has become the standard of laboratories and producers of Manuka Honey. MNZ continues to use the best scientific research and the most innovative product development together with its partners.

Why MNZ - Manuka New Zealand?


MNZ only processes raw, monofloral manuka honey that is extracted from its own beehives from all over New Zealand. MNZ Monofloral, raw Manuka Honey is processed, packaged and labeled in the New Zealand processing facility.


For MNZ, the science behind monofloral Manuka Honey and the scientific discoveries are crucial. Our main measurement point is Methylglyoxal (MGO) followed by Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF). In addition to these 3 very important pillars, MNZ measures on many different components.


Manuka honey is characterized by the naturally present strong bio-active ingredients. Scientists from the Netherlands, Germany, Japan and New Zealand, among others, have shown that Manuka honey has very special qualities and properties.


MNZ focuses on leading researchers such as Professor Thomas Henle, Professor Peter Molan, Professor Keiji Terao and Dr. Robert Laheij. They have done a lot of research into the special properties of Manuka Honey and Methylglyoxal (MGO).

Who is it for, who can use it?

New Zealand Manuka Honey is the only 100% natural food in the world that has been scientifically proven to have an  high-quality, reliable bioactivity and is known worldwide as one of the most special foods, making it suitable for everyone from 1 year old. Manuka Honey has a moderate glycemic index of 54-59 allowing diabetics to still benefit from Manuka Honey in careful management of blood sugar levels. Manuka Honey is also suitable for animals.


New Zealand’s native flora and fauna have been able to develop in isolation over the last 80 million years, resulting in one of the highest levels of natural bioactive substances in the world. MNZ is proud to bring these high grade products to the world market and to be committed to sustainability in the beekeeping, harvesting and processing of our products. MNZ places its hives in remote areas of New Zealand and does not use antibiotics for disease control in beekeeping. The wooden beehives are free from chemical preservatives and pesticides. We regularly check for the presence of the varroa mite and follow principles of organic production for honey. However, the areas designated in New Zealand as biologically are very scarce. Our honey is a raw honey, which means that it is not extra filtered and is not aerated and the temperature at the time of production never exceeds the temperature in the beehive. No chemicals are used in the processing of the honey and only hot water is used to clean the installation. Aggressive chemical cleaning agents are never used during the entire production process; neither inside nor outside. MNZ is committed to doing business as sustainably as possible, thereby minimizing our influence and pressure on the beautiful and amzing environment.
