Antimicrobial vs Antibacterial

  • Active honey like Manuka may all look the same, but only our Jarrah honeys are laboratory tested to be antimicrobial.

  • Manuka honey is antibacterial. Jarrah honey is antimicrobial. While Manuka honey has been known to have antimicrobial properties, it’s at a much lower level than Jarrah honey.

  • Antibacterial means active against bacteria. Antimicrobial means active against microbes. Microbes are bacteria, fungi or viruses, meaning that our honey has three benefits in one.

What about taste

  • Jarrah honey is monofloral and unpasteurised
  • Manuka can taste medicinal, Jarrah has a caramel sweetness
  • It only comes from Western Australia, one of the last pesticide free places on Earth

The TA rating of our honey is a rating of how well it can inhibit the growth of bacteria and other Microorganisms. The higher the TA rating the greater its ability to inhibit microbial growth. Honey with a high TA rating is called an active honey
