Mānuka Honey is made exclusively by bees harvesting nectar from New Zealand’s indigenous Mānuka flower (Leptospermum scoparium). Only New Zealand Mānuka Honey is world-renowned for its healing properties and ranks as the most researched therapeutic honey in the world.
Methylglyoxal (MG or MGO) is a rare healing compound found at high levels in Mānuka Honey. Generally, the higher the concentration of MGO, the stronger the healing properties.
MGO and UMF™ (Unique Mānuka Factor) are both trusted Mānuka Honey grading systems used to indicate the strength of Mānuka Honey. Both measure MGO content whilst UMF™ grading measures additional signature compounds: Leptosperin, DHA and HMF.
UMF™ and MGO measure and define the strength of Mānuka Honey differently, however a direct correlation exists between MGO concentration and Non-Peroxide Activity (as measured within the UMF™ grading system).
