Bee's Inn Manuka Honey Score
UMFHA License #1040
Bee’s Inn is yet another authentic manuka honey brand out of New Zealand. It is UMF certified, it is pure, and it only comes in a 250g (8.8oz) jar. Also, just so you are not surprised, so far it is only available as UMF 15+ grade.
How It All Started For Bee’s Inn
If you are doing some research on this honey, do not be surprised when the name Tuff Bear pops up. This is the actual importer of the honey, not the manufacturer. So, if you live outside of New Zealand, you will be buying the honey from the importer, not directly from the manufacturer. Even though, this does affect the price, this manuka product still manages to stay competitive when compared to Tahi, Happy Valley and other brands of similar quality.
I was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the vendor and by the double sealed package that the product arrive in. I had some general questions about the process in which the honey is being distributed around the world. I wanted to know if it is actually packaged only once and if it has been packaged in New Zealand. The answers to both questions were an affirmative YES.
The reason I ask this, is because some small companies in New Zealand allow distributors to repackage their manuka honey. This is often done in order for the vendors to be able to put their labels on. I usually stay away from such honeys. There is no need for a jar of manuka honey to be packaged twice. So, positive points for this brand.
Great Medical Qualities
Other than that, this is UMF 15+, so it has good medicinal qualities. I found that some people have recommended this specific brand as a cure for H. Pylori. I cannot attest that this manuka honey brand will help cure that disease, but, my research has shown that manuka in general does help recover from H. Pylori.
This honey is dark in color, maybe even a bit darker than other brands like Comvita and Kiva. It has a mild taste, definitely not too sweet. Some people have complained that it does not taste good. But, then again, the same people have also admitted to have never tried manuka honey before.
If you are looking to switch things around a little bit. If you are bored from your current jar of manuka, give this one a try. It is UMF 15+ after all, and it can even be used to treat mild physical wounds and burns.
