It has become big business for beekeepers in Australia and New Zealand who are now exporting the honey all over the world.

The following scale measures the level of non-peroxide antibacterial activity in Manuka honey:

– Unique Manuka Factor 5 – 10 indicates a low level of activity

– Unique Manuka Factor 10 – 15 indicates useful levels of activity
