How to maximise the benefits of your Manuka honey

Are you getting the most out of your Manuka honey? The way you store and serve your honey could be damaging its healing potential. Keep reading to learn the correct way to store and serve your Manuka products!

 

Storage

When it comes to storing your Manuka honey, the ideal situation would be in a cool, dark and dry place, away from direct sunlight and unnecessary heat. If your Manuka honey heats up too much (think above 50°C and higher), or for a prolonged amount of time, you risk destroying the enzymes, bacteria and antioxidants that make it so powerful! Manuka honey can also be kept in the fridge if you prefer a more firm texture.

 

Serving

It is recommended that you don’t use any metal utensils when serving your Manuka honey. This is because honey has an acidic pH that reacts with metal surfaces, which could potentially damage the healing properties within your Manuka. Instead, opt for plastic, wooden or ceramics for serving.
