This Trader Joe’s Manuka Honey comes from a shrub plant in New Zealand, and is said to have healing and therapeutic qualities. The UMF 10+ ( Unique Mānuka Factor) designation on the bottle refers to the quality and the purity of the honey. The Trader Joe’s label used to be on their Manuka honey. But there was some controversy as to the claims made on the bottle. Now Trader Joe’s Manuka Honey is made by Mother Earth in New Zealand. If you buy this at Trader Joe’s you’ll end up paying a lot less than the equivalent bottles in places like Whole Foods. So if you are a big believer in Manuka honey and its healing and therapeutic qualities, this is a good bargain for a price under $14…..…….

Trader Joe’s Honey
What is everyone’s experience with using Manuka honey? When I first looked at the bottle and saw the $13.99 price I was shocked that such a small bottle of honey could be so expensive. Then I read about all the supposed benefits and uses of it, and it made more sense. And similar sized Whole Foods manuka honey sells for around $25 so you know this is a good value. I’m curious to learn how everyone uses this and what first turned them on to the benefits and therapeutic qualities of it. Plus, I love New Zealand so anything coming from the Kiwis must be good! If anyone can compare this to the three or four varieties that Whole Foods carries, let us know. It is easy to miss these bottles when you’re at the store, but they are generally found on the bottom shelf. Here’s a few other options if you can’t make it to TJs…..
