Why is my Manuka honey crystalized to become sugar like form? Is it safe to consume crystalized Mānuka honey?

No. Adding sugar into any honey is illegal and against AVA food safety rules and regulation in Singapore. Sugar content on the label refer to natural occurring fructose and glucose in the honey.

Manuka honey only needs to be stored at a cool and dry place. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
Why isn’t your Manuka honey stored in glass bottles? Is there any concern to store honey in plastic bottles?
Our Mānuka honey is absolutely safe for consumption as the plastic bottles comply with food safety standard. The opaque plastic bottles can also prevent UV light from affecting the quality of honey.
Why is the texture, colour and taste sometime different from batch to batch although it is the exact same type of Manuka honey?
Mainly because Manuka honey is natural and no coloring and flavoring added. The texture, color and taste will be affected by the honey harvesting area, harvesting season, temperature and duration of storage.
Why does honey contain air bubbles?
The air bubbles are trapped in the honey during processing and packaging of the product. The air bubbles then work their way up to top after the honey is settled down. Another factor is because the honey is active and sustained, as time goes by, bubbles will form on the surface of honey.
