Manuka Honey with a UHF rating of 20 or higher is very rare, extremely expensive and overly potent. In fact there have been reports of some people experiencing sensitivity to Manuka Honey that is that potent. These vitamins help metabolic functions, bone maintenance including teeth and cartilage, even the water balance of the body. Honeymark carries active Manuka Honey UHF 16+ which is ideal for therapeutic use. “Any store that is currently selling Manuka Honey knows that it has a tendency to fly off the shelves,” says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. Importing Manuka Honey from New Zealand can be quite costly and could take weeks. This low-grade Manuka Honey doesn't have any more healing properties than the ordinary honey that you would find in your local supermarket. Most must be consumed by eating the right foods, because the body cannot produce or store them. The human body does not by itself produce minerals so they must be sourced from external supply.
"Horticulture is already supported by Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) programmes that provide audited quality systems which incorporate traceability," Mr Chapman says. "While we appreciate the new rules are being developed in the wake of the Government Inquiry into the Whey Protein Concentrate Contamination Incident in the dairy industry, we are saying we already have traceability systems in place, and please take them into account rather than reinventing the wheel and adding a double cost to our growers. "We have submitted that the adoption under section 40 of the Food Act of the GAP /GMP programmes is a sure and expedient way for the objectives of the Bill to be achieved. "The traceability systems of individual businesses make up a connected traceability system that operates across the horticulture industry. This network has been built over many years and continues to improve." Mr Chapman says other aspects of the Bill horticulture seeks consideration on are around the proposal to establish regulations and notices to change the frequency and intensity of auditing; to charge business for these audits; and for the regulator to have greater powers to obtain information, which could result in businesses breaching contractual obligations or agreements. "We disagree with those proposed changes. As outlined, horticulture already has a robust audit process which includes traceability and recall testing, so any additional regulatory burden would add cost, for no real gain. And while we support the ability for the regulator to obtain information to investigate a food safety issue, we submit, that information that is obtained for this purpose should be protected by financial penalties and indemnities."

It can also be used as an excellent alternative to sugar. The human body does not by itself produce minerals so they must be sourced from external supply. These vitamins help metabolic functions, bone maintenance including teeth and cartilage, even the water balance of the body. Honeymark, now offers retailers easy access to this premium honey. Conversely, Manuka Honey with an extraordinarily high UHF rating is not desirable either. Aside from the assortment of letters and numerical combinations that adorn bottles and packets of vitamins, these represent the amazing complexity of humans biological requirements. Instead of coughing up quick cash loans for medical emergencies or expenses, people should use the money instead to buy good vitamins and mineral supplements that could dispense going to the hospital needlessly.
