Is Manuka Honey safe?


Last Update vor 10 Monaten

For most people, manuka honey is safe to consume. 

However, some people should consult a doctor before using it, including:

People with diabetes

All types of honey are high in natural sugar. Therefore, consuming manuka honey may affect blood sugar levels.

Those allergic to honey or bees

Those allergic to other types of honey or bees may have an allergic reaction after ingesting or applying manuka honey.


The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend giving honey to babies younger than one due to the risk of infant botulism, a type of foodborne illness.
