What does “TA” mean: Natural honey’s anti-microbial quality is measured by the term “Total Activity (TA)”. The TA is like a bacteria killing scale; the higher the TA, the greater the antimicrobial strength. The anti-bacterial activity of honey is derived via natural enzymes, such as glucose oxidation as chemicals in the honey.
Any honey with a TA of greater than 15+ would have beneficial antimicrobial properties, and these properties are more effective as the TA level increases. Due to Jarrah honey’s high hydrogen peroxide level, it can inhibit Golden Staph Bacteria. Apply Jarrah honey directly onto a wound or topical ulcers to aid its healing.
