MADHU HONEY

The appreciation for quality honey, good beekeeping practices, as well as a sound knowledge of product and its origin are what we seek to combine under the brand of Madhu Honey. Madhu Honey is a lean company with passionate members. We believe that honey is only as good as all parties involved in the chain of production.

PURE

Pure stands for the varietal (monofloral) purity of our honeys. Our varietal honey is attested by pollen analysis. All of our active honeys fulfill the purity criteria. Our honeys are also free of added sugars and pesticides.

RAW

Raw stands for our raw product. Honey is a heterogenous natural product and is therefore always a little different from batch to batch. We love both the honesty of this characteristic and this quality of an unadulterated raw product. We aim to pass raw traits on to our customers with the least intervention possible.

HONEY

Honey is derived from a recipe that bees have perfected over millions of years. Bees’ interaction with nature has yielded the most complex and nutritious sweetener one could ever ask for. The less we impose our influence on this product, the more the chef’s recipe is honored.

MANUKA

Manuka honey or honey from a tea tree stands for new hope in times of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The broom-like shrub known by many as the tea tree has many names, and there are over 30 different types of tea tree. In New Zealand, we mainly differentiate between Manuka (Leptospermum Scoparium) and Kanuka (Kunzea Ericoidis).

Lab-Certified

Our Manuka honey has been tested twice in New Zealand and Germany by independent laboratories (Analytica and QSI Quality Services International). Our honeys are free from contamination. We place great emphasis on delivering a quality that satisfies the highest of standards.

HEY HONEY!

What makes our Manuka-Honey so good

Manuka honey or honey from a tea tree stands for new hope in times of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The broom-like shrub known by many as the tea tree has many names, and there are over 30 different types of tea tree. In New Zealand, we mainly differentiate between Manuka (Leptospermum Scoparium) and Kanuka (Kunzea Ericoidis).

These two shrubs look similar at first sight; however, upon closer inspection, flowers and leaves can be told apart. In some areas of New Zealand, Kanuka is more prevalent than Manuka and vice versa. These close relatives can oftentimes be found together or in close proximity to one another, with bees collecting from both sources and turning both nectars into honey. The scent, flavor, and consistency of a pure Kanuka and a pure Manuka are identical. Moreover, the pollen from both varieties under a microscope cannot be differentiated. This fact testifies to their apparent close relationship. Manuka is, after all, a Maori word which is often used to describe the whole tea tree family in New Zealand. A clear definition has only recently been established.

The name Madhu has its origins in Sanskrit, one of the oldest written languages in the world, and means sweet or honey. Madhu to this day provides the base for many Indo-European words related to honey, such as mead, met, miel, medus, miod, just to name a few. Madhu is also the second name of the founder of Madhu Honey – Matthew Sri Madhusudana Pettersson. Thus, it was clear and obvious that we would market our honey under the name of Madhu Honey.

The following benefits of Manuka can be observed:

 

Improvement of a sore throat.

Success in treating acne, eczema and other skin irritations.

 


Aid in the healing of burns and abrasions.

Beneficial effects in treating for caries prophylaxis and gingivitis.

 


Help in reducing stomach acid.

Relief from irritable bowel syndrome.
