Germans are amongst the world’s biggest consumers of honey, eating on average over 1kg each per year. New Zealand’s manuka honey is popular and its benefits well understood.
Amazon.de offers many manuka honey products. Which are the most popular? Which are the best?
This list of the top manuka honeys on Amazon Germany is intended to make sense of it all, to help you choose the right manuka honey and to know you are getting quality and value for your dollar.
The most important factor when appraising the value of a manuka honey is the honey’s concentration of ‘manuka goodness’, which is measured by UMF or by MGO, methylglyoxal concentration. Without a UMF or MGO rating it is difficult to know whether a honey is genuine manuka, or a lower-grade blend.
We’ve used the honey bestseller list from Amazon Germany’s Grocery department to identify the most popular manuka honeys on Amazon.de, and we’ve organised the list by the recognised UMF and MGO manuka honey ratings, from highest to lowest grade. The price guide shown is an indication of the Amazon.de price per 250g jar.

Genuine high-grade manuka honey, UMF 10+ and above, is costly and in limited supply. If you find a manuka honey with a high rating number on the label at a lower price than an equivalent UMF-rated honey, be skeptical about what might really be in the jar.
