Romanian honey has a stronger antibacterial effect than the Manuka Honey, originating in New Zealand

Romanian researchers Simona and John Bisboaca have conducted domestic laboratory tests, whose finding were confirmed in Switzerland and prove that the Romanian mixed flower and honeydew honey have a stronger antibacterial effect than the Manuka honey, which is made in New Zealand. The researchers say that authorities in New Zealand support honey producers and invest a lot of money in marketing it all over the world. That is the reason why the Manuka Honey is sold in Romania for a price 40 times higher than the Romanian one. Tests worth around 4,500 euros – a cost that the researchers paid alone – were needed in order to allow them develop a new antibacterial product based on honey. „For now, we have chosen only three types of well-known bacteria – E. Coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus faecalis. We have selected standard bacteria strains and antibiotics resistant bacteria, precisely to prove the effectiveness of the honey in treating them”, Mrs Bisboaca has said.
