A Proven Medicinal Honey - and is comparable to Manuka Honey:
Ulmo honey has been proven to have higher antimicrobial effect compared to Manuka honey with certain strains of infection/bacteria such as E-coli for example. Manuka Honey is a very well known medicinal honey. Ulmo honey is medicinal honey that compares to manuka honey. The medical research regarding Ulmo honey has proven it to be effective with Burns and with Venous Ulcers. Much like Manuka honey, our Ulmo honey is highly antibacterial, antimicrobial and is used to help the Digestive System, Soothe Sore Throat and ease the common Cold and has been used for scrapes, cuts, moisturizing cream among many other uses. Ulmo honey is a great option for Manuka consumers to buy a premium High Quality Healing Honey but without paying the premium price of Manuka honey. Currently, Ulmo honey does not have a designation system like Manuka honey's UMF or Kfactor or MGO standards. It is our hope that one day Ulmo will have this designation.
Unlike most raw honey, our raw Ulmo honey is buttery, smooth, and soft. It is not hard and grainy like the common raw honey.
There are many descriptions that describe our honey; Delicious, Delicate and Delectable are just a few.

More Details about Our Ulmo honey:
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF): an Organic compound derived from the dehydration of sugar. HMF is naturally found in all honeys from the beginning stages of production in the honey comb but at low levels. HMF levels will increase if honey is exposed to heat or outside components such as inverted sugars (syrups, additives) are added to the honey during process. HMF is a direct indicator of raw honey quality where lower levels indicate the highest of quality and high levels indicate lower quality. In Europe and USA, one cannot market as high quality natural honey if their HMF factor is above 40. In the case of our Ulmo Honey, the HMF measures 8.34mg per KG of honey.
Humidity (Moisture content): This factor is very important for raw honeys. The lower the moisture content, the better, because more water % in honey degrades the pure quality and increases the risk of fermentation over time in storage. Any raw honey should have moisture content that does not exceed 20%. The average honey has around 18.5% moisture content. Our Ulmo Honey has 17.5%.
Diastase: Converts starch into short-chain sugars. Many countries have regulation that no table honey can have Diastase level below 8. Many honeys used for bakery is around this level. Our Ulmo Honey has a level of 25.7.
Methylglyoxal (MGO): This component is the key indicator of Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA) in honey and until now has only been found in significant amount from some strains of Manuka Honey. Our Ulmo Honey shows some level of MGO but not significantly high because Ulmo Honey’s activity is derived from high levels of Hydrogen Peroxide production, not from NPA.
Antibiotics/Pesticides: Our Ulmo Honey, shows 0% presence of any antibiotics or pesticides. It is essentially an Organic Honey without the IMO Organic certificate.
A study by BioMedCentral has shown that Ulmo Honey can have as much as or even more antimicrobial activity against strains such as E-coli and P. aeruginosa than Manuka Honey. See their report here: Ulmo Health Benefits BioMedCentral
