Peter Molan, from the university of Waikato (NZ) researched the therapeutic properties of Manuka honey. All Manuka honeys contain a specific enzyme, the UMF (unique manuka factor), which produces hydrogen peroxide, a recognized antiseptic and antibacterial of which the level varies enormously from one honey to another. The level contained in Manuka honey is approximately ten times higher than that found in other honeys.
