"Comvita Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand' remote, pollution free native forests and is world renowned for its unique flavour. Comvita Manuka Honeys are tested for the unique antibacterial properties which make New Zealand Manuka honey famous. The Active Manuka Honey Association (or AMHA), has registered UMF as a trademark so that the antibacterial activity of Manuka honey cannot be misrepresented. The UMF number comes from a laboratory test for antibacterial activity, with the honey being compared with a standard reference antiseptic (phenol) for potency. UMF 10+ would be equivalent in antiseptic potency to a 15% solution of phenol. Manuka Honey which is tested and proven to have the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) is labelled accordingly. Only honeys with a UMF rating higher than 10 can use the UMF trademark."
