Mānuka Honey is made exclusively by bees foraging nectar and pollen from New Zealand’s indigenous Mānuka flower (Leptospermum scoparium).New Zealand Mānuka Honey is world-renowned for its healing properties and ranks as the most extensively researched therapeutic honey in the world.
MGO (methylglyoxyl) and UMF™ (Unique Mānuka Factor) are both trusted Mānuka Honey grading systems used to indicate the potency of mānuka-derived antibacterial compounds. Both grading systems measure MGO content whilst UMF™ grading measures additional signature compounds: Leptosperin, DHA and HMF.
Though UMF™ and MGO grading systems measure the strength of Mānuka Honey differently, a direct correlation exists between MGO concentration and Mānuka Honey's unique antibacterial Non-Peroxide Activity (as measured within the UMF™ grading system).
3Bee Premium Mānuka Honey is harvested, tested, certified and packed in New Zealand ensuring every jar is of the highest quality and authenticity. 3Bee offers Monofloral Mānuka Honey independently analysed and certified for quality, purity and authenticity by both of these respected honey grading systems. The rankings are clearly displayed on the front label of every jar.
