Additional Information

Ulmo honey is made from nectar of the flowering Ulmo tree (Eucryphia cordifolia), which is an endemic species of the sub-antarctic forests of the Patagonia region of South America. Its white, four-petalled flowers produce abundant nectar, which gives Ulmo honey a vibrantly floral flavor and aroma with earthy undertones. The main notes of this honey are jasmine, mint, and burnt almonds. Ulmo honey has a smooth, creamy texture, and an extra light amber color.

Ulmo honey won the “Best Raw Honey” prize at the 2007 Good Food Awards in the United States, but it has also gained notoriety for its health properties. This is because recent studies have shown Ulmo honey to be more effective than medical-grade Manuka honey (used in hospitals in the US for wound treatment) at combatting bacteria. A study in Ireland found that Ulmo honey outperforms Manuka honey when tested for their abilities to prevent the growth of E. Coli, MRSA (Staph infection), and Streptococcus (Strep throat).
