Manuka Honey

  1. 1. UMF Active Manuka Honey Workshop
  2. 2. Agenda • All About Bees • Manuka Honey • UMF 18+ Active Manuka Honey • Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen • Q&A
  3. 3. History From The Hive • The ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Egyptians used honey to heal wounds and cure diseases of the gut (Zumla and Lulat, 1989) • Prophet Muhammad said “honey is a remedy for every illness • Mentioned in the Veda, Hindu scriptures dating back 5000 years old.
  4. 4. The Amazing Honey Bee Bees include the honeybee, the carpenter bee, sweat bee and the stingless bee.
  5. 5. The Amazing Honey Bee Only insect that produces food for man! makes honey, Only the royal jelly and bee pollen!
  6. 6. Inside The Hive • There are 3 types of bees in every hive. • The Queen Bee, worker bee and the drone (male bee)
  7. 7. Queen Bee • The Queen Bee is the only bee able to lay eggs • She is the largest bee in the hive, about 42% larger than the worker bee, weighs 60% more • Can lay 3,000 eggs in a single day • Feeds exclusively on royal jelly
  8. 8. Drone (Lebah Jantan) • Their sole duty is to mate with the Queen Bee • They die in the mating process
  9. 9. The Worker Bee • The smallest bee in the colony, are sexually undeveloped females • A colony can have 50,000 to 60,000 worker bees • They perform many tasks
  10. 10. The Worker Bee Days Old Duties 1-2 Cleans cellsand keeps the brood warm 3–5 Feeds older larvae 6 - 11 Feeds youngest larvae 12 – 17 Produces wax, builds comb, carries food 17 – 21 Guards the hive entrance 22 days Foraging begins, polinates flowers, collects onwards nectar and pollen
  11. 11. The Bee Dance • If the worker bee finds nectar, they will communicate the location to other bees in the hive • This is done with a remarkable intricate dance routine” – “The Bee Dance”
  12. 12. The Bee Dance • With the wagtail “figure 8 dance, the worker bee will pass the direction and distance to other bees.
  13. 13. Did You Know? • It takes about 300 bees to gather about 450 grams of honey
  14. 14. • Honey, a pure, natural sweetener is produced by bees from nectar collected from flowers • The word “honey” is derived from the Arabic word “Han”. This became “Hunaga” which means golden in German.
  15. 15. Honey • Honey from a single source is known as monofloral honey – Example Manuka Honey • Honey made from nectar gathered from different flowers is known as poly floral honey
  16. 16. Honey
  17. 17. Honey • Does not require refrigeration • Room temperature is best • Cold temperature encourages granulation • Granulation or crystallization is a natural state of honey – does not indicate spoilage • To be stored in a cool, dry place
  18. 18. Properties of Honey • Known for its antibacterial properties • Many of its medical uses – effectiveness due to its antibacterial properties
  19. 19. Properties of Honey • Osmotic effect - high sugar content and low water content leaves very little water molecules available for microorganisms • Acidity – quite acidic with its pH between 3.2 and 4.5 – low enough to inhibit many animal pathogens
  20. 20. Hydrogen Peroxide Hydrogen Peroxide – H2O2 • Produced by enzymatic action (glucose oxidase) in the honey • Helps to preserve the honey • A proven antiseptic with antibacterial properties
  21. 21. Manuka Honey Well known monofloral honey found in New Zealand
  22. 22. Manuka Honey • Primarily collected by the species of honeybee known as Apis mellifera ligustica
  23. 23. Manuka Honey • It takes more than two million Manuka flowers to make just one pound of Manuka Honey
  24. 24. Composition of Manuka Honey Glucose 1 tablespoon = 64 kalori 31% Low pH or acidic level = 3.9 Fructose 38% Water 17% Trisaccharides & Minerals, Vitam ins, other Sucrose Enzym es Maltose Carbohydrates 2% 1% 7% 4%

  27. 27. UMF 18+ Active Manuka Honey
  28. 28. UMF – Unique Manuka Factor • First discovered by Dr Peter Molan, of Waikato University’s Honey Research Unit • Comes from the nectar of the flower • Additional to hydrogen peroxide – enhances honey’s antibacterial property • Hydrogen peroxide and UMF – synergistic effect • Together giving honey special healing properties
  29. 29. UMF – Rating • UMF presence can only be detected by special laboratory testing • Testing criteria – established by the Honey Research Unit at Waikato University, New Zealand • UMF followed by a number (example UMF18), indicates the strength of the honey • Minimum rating is 10
  30. 30. UMF – Unique Manuka Factor • A measure of antibacterial strength • 0-4 : Not detectable • 5-9 : Maintenance levels only(Manuka honey recommended as a table honey) • 10-15 : Useful levels endorsed by the Honey Research Unit, Waikato University • 16 and above : superior levels which enhances its special healing properties
  31. 31. UMF 18+ Active Manuka Honey • A special honey identified by the name UMF, UMF Manuka Honey • Has hydrogen peroxide plus UMF, giving it increased antibacterial potency • It is preferred honey for wound dressing and other special therapeutic properties
  32. 32. UMF 18+ Active Manuka Honey • UMF Manuka Honey from a New Zealand company licensed to use the name UMF, and labelled in the licensee’s name, is the only honey guaranteed to have the special UMF healing property and be of the same quality as that referred to in the research and clinical trials.
  33. 33. UMF 18+ Active Manuka Honey Checklist to identify Genuine UMF Manuka Honey : • It is from a New Zealand company licensed to use the name “UMF” • It has the UMF licensee’s name on the front label • It has a rating of UMF 10 or more
