MGO™ Manuka Honey


  

What makes MGOTM Manuka Honey so special

New Zealand Manuka Honey is renowned throughout the world as one of nature's most prized foods.

Scientific evidence has confirmed methylglyoxal as one of the key compounds naturally occurring in New Zealand manuka honey.

Methylglyoxal is only found in high levels in some manuka honey.

In contrast, other honeys tested worldwide have low levels of methylglyoxal, ranging between 0 to 5mg/kg.


 

Not all Manuka Honey is equal

It is important to know that the level of methylglyoxal can vary greatly in manuka honey, so you want to be sure you know what you are getting.

That is why at Manuka Health we test and certify our MGOTM Manuka Honey to guarantee the level of methylglyoxal present, as indicated on the label.

               
 

 

MGOTM Manuka Honey - A Science-Based Quality System

Manuka Health was the first company in the world to certify manuka honey according to methylglyoxal content.

Our precise and reliable MGOTM Manuka Honey Grading System is based on the ground-breaking scientific research of German scientist Dr Thomas Henle, Technical University of Dresden.

Dr. Henle discovered the presence of high levels of the natural compound methylgyoxal in manuka honey.
