January 20, 20233 min read
Proudly a purveyor of New Zealand’s rarest honey, PURITI ensures every customer receives the best quality Mānuka honey possible. To reach this level of quality, we ensure several safeguards and checkpoints in the production process to ensure nothing but 100% pure New Zealand Mānuka honey is produced.
To give our customers the reassurance of our premium Mānuka honey, this blog will explore the several steps we take to promise you every purchase of our raw Mānuka honey jars are exactly that. From the flowers where the nectar is extracted to the extensive testing, you’ll be sure to buy with total confidence when shopping at PURITI.
Monofloral Mānuka Honey Requires ONLY ONE Flower’s Nectar
As the name would suggest, “monofloral” refers to honey that is produced from one species of flower. In this case, that flower would be the NZ native Mānuka. Growing mostly in remote regions across the country, Mānuka is a highly-sensitive flower that only blooms in short windows throughout the year. It’s widely known that this flower may only bloom just a few weeks a year.
This narrow period means harvesting is very important. PURITI’s production and supply team exist as one of the largest Mānuka honey suppliers in the world. We have refined the process to ensure that our harvesting system runs as smoothly as the honey we produce.
Once the precious honey bees have extracted the Mānuka nectar, they “work” the nectar into honey and deposit it into cells where our team of highly-skilled apiarists delicately extract the raw, unadulterated honey.
A Team Of Highly-Knowledgeable Mānuka Honey Artisans
While the extracted Mānuka honey remains pure and raw until it reaches the jar, there are still a team of master craftsmen who must maintain the purity during the production and jarring process.
Creaming of honey is a very specific process where the Mānuka honey’s natural sugar crystals are broken down to result in the velvety texture we all know too well. The Mānuka honey remains in its purest form and also allows for smooth spreading and scooping.
Consistent Testing At Every Step Of Mānuka Honey Production
How do we maintain this level of purity through each step of production? Extensive testing within a state-of-the-art facility. We do more than one stage of testing. Ensuring a 100% pure Mānuka honey jar can only be done with multiple testing throughout the production process.
Every jar of PURITI’s Mānuka honey has to meet exceedingly high internal and external standards. We also send our honey to independent IANZ-certified laboratories, which helps verify our product to be in line with the New Zealand Government’s standards to be deemed as pure Mānuka honey.
We also test to ensure:
Traceability to source
UMF Certification To Ensure PURITI Meets The Gold Standard
The Unique Mānuka Factor (UMF™) is a certification method within the Mānuka honey industry that is widely considered to be the best. Why is this? No other system measures the different factors like UMF™. Along with meeting the necessary requirements from the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI), UMF™ considers the four factors that matter in pure Mānuka honey verification.
Leptosperin (DNA marker) - measures the authenticity of Mānuka honey
Methylglyoxal (MGO)- measures the potency of Mānuka honey
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) - measures the shelf-life of Mānuka honey
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) - measures the freshness of Mānuka honey
No other honey undergoes such rigorous testing by a bee-keepers country mile. We go above and beyond the strict New Zealand Mānuka honey identification tests to promise certainty around purity, potency, authenticity and freshness. As a result, UMF™ ratings are the only option for anyone seeking independent assurance that their purchase will support their health and wellness.
