The antibacterial properties of manuka honey set it apart from traditional honey. The sweet and strong flavor of manuka honey makes it a potential sweetener and a replacement for table sugar. Over the years the practice of using unconventional sweeteners has witnessed a significant increase this, in turn, is expected to cause a rise in the demand for manuka honey over the forecast period.
