THERE'S MORE TO OUR HONEY THAN BEES, BREAKFAST AND CARTOON BEARS

Necta & Hive Red Gum honeycombs are high quality, responsibly sourced and antimicrobial, so they’re good for you. On top of that, they’re delicious.

Our Red Gum honeycomb is up to 3x more antimicrobial than Manuka and for the same great price.

MORE REASONS TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT RED GUM HONEYCOMB

  • Red Gum honeycomb is single flower and unpasteurised
  • Manuka can taste medicinal, Red Gum has a mild sweet flavour
  • It only comes from Western Australia, one of the last pesticide free places on Earth

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MANUKA AND RED GUM?

  • Active honeys like Manuka may all look the same, but our Red Gum honeycomb is laboratory tested to be antimicrobial.

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

  • 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 DOES THE TOTAL ACTIVITY (TA) RATING OF HONEY MEAN?

The TA rating of a honey is a rating of how well it can inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. Honey with a high TA rating is called an active honey.
