There are above three hundred varieties that are available and if you had to take one then it should be the best honey.

The Best Manuka Honey shall have hydrogen peroxide as one of its top components. This particular constituent gives honey the antibiotic quality. It is mainly there because of the presence of a compound called dihydroxyacetone. This can be found in the flower nectar of the manuka bush plant.

You must look for all these behind the label that is usually attached on a genuine manuka honey bottle. There is MGO rating that is present on the honey. You can find methyglyxocal that is another compound found in the honey.
