What is Medi Jelly?

by | Jun 5, 2019

Our MediJelly brand of bio-active honey is produced by bees foraging sustainably on Pristine Coastal Heath in our local area, the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. Our bees collect nectar and pollen from Native Australian Leptospermum plant species alongside other native heath flowers.

“Jellybush” is an Australian slang term for honey from the Leptorspermum plants, which has a thick “Jelly” like consistency, and has the same medicinal values as the New Zealand Leptospermum honey. Our MediJelly is a medicinal Bio-Active honey produced from nectar from the leptospermum plants that is naturally occurring in our area:

All of our honey is sent to the University of Sunshine Coast Honey Laboratory and tested for MGO, DHA and HMF concentrations by world leading laboratory staff.
All of our Medi Jelly manuka Honey is tested using the HPLC technique in NATA accredited laboratories by independent scientists.
You can be certain that the honey you receive is ALWAYS as strong as the label states – we guarantee it!

Laboratory issued Test Certificates are kept for every batch and we keep records that can be used to track the provenance of every jar right back to the Apiary where it was produced, here in Australia.
