Is Manuka honey worth paying extra for?

  1. There's a house down the road from us and it's called Manuka.

    That's my boring contribution.

    You cannot market UK honey as organic because a bee can travel 100 miles for pollen, therefore one cannot be sure it's organic. That's why organic honey comes from places like New Zealand as they can have areas that large that are chemical free.

    Honey's generally recognised to be an antiseptic, isn't it? That might therefore offer protection against anything a cold/flu brings along with it, but probably not the cold/flu itself.

  7. It never goes off, some has been found in Egyptian tombs and it's still edible but shops put a sell by date on it....

    I know a woman who plays £25 a jar for this honey. She told me that her husband has terrible stomach ulcers and it is like a miracle cure. She has tried swapping it for cheaper honey, without telling him, but the discomfort starts almost immediately. She swears by it.

    I’ve never had it my life, by the way.

    There are many species of bees that are are threatened. Shipping honey half way around the world is beyond stupid. Support your local apiarist instead.
