Manuka Health measures methylglyoxal content based on standards developed by University of Dresden. The higher the MGO™ Manuka honey rating the higher the level of anti-bacterial activity in the honey.
100% Pure New Zealand Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey is collected from a plant that is unique to New Zealand – Leptospermum scoparium. The white flowers appear in spring and are much loved by the honey bees. Manuka flowers have a strong, aromatic fragrance and are full of the nectar which provides this dark, creamy honey.

Manuka Health have decided to market their products based on the methylglyoxal content in the honey. Until recently, it was not known what compound or compounds in the honey where responsibly for it`s remarkable properties. Professor Thomas Henle of the University of Dresden in Germany has discovered it is Manuka honey`s unique concentration of Dietary Methylglyoxal that is responsible for it`s beneficial characteristics.
For years Manuka health used Non-Peroxide Activity rating (NPA) or UMF® rating, however in light of the new evidence regarding Methylglyoxal they have decided to trademark MGO™ to make it clear to consumers how much Methylglyoxal is in their honey.
The MGO™ number represents how many milligrams of Methylglyoxal there are in 1kg of honey. So for example, MGO™100 is guaranteed to contain 100mg of Methylglyoxal per kilogram.
