Mānuka Science 101
Not your everyday table honey…
Science has been at the forefront of our company since day one. The honey in our First Honey range of products is a medical grade Leptospermum scoparium Mānuka honey that has been scientifically researched to support wound healing. It comes from a mono-floral source for consistency and is superior to other medical grade honeys as measured by the methylglyoxal concentration and antibacterial activity.
Since founding father Dr Molan’s breakthrough discovery there have been hundreds of published papers in medical journals and a growing global understanding of the efficacy of medical grade Mānuka honey.
We are proud to collaborate with world leading scientists, doctors and research institutes to continue to advance the science behind our products.
- First Honey owns and sources from dedicated beehives in our New Zealand Mānuka forests, and has proprietary processes and quality controls to produce the medical grade honey used in our products.
