Monofloral MGO Manuka Honey
Manuka New Zealand produces only raw, monofloral MGO Manuka Honey, which is classified according to the present values of Methylglyoxal (MGO) in mg / kg. Methylglyoxal (MGO) has been shown through scientific research that this unique compound occurs naturally in MGO Manuka Honey and is responsible for the high availability and large amounts of bio-active natural substances that benefit the quality of Manuka Honey. The higher the values of MGO Manuka Honey, the more bio-active substances are present. Collected from beehives in remote, pristine areas of New Zealand, each batch of MGO Manuka Honey is tested and certified to ensure levels of Methylglyoxal (shown as the MGO number). This guarantees the authenticity and the bio-active power of each product. Manuka New Zealand guarantees the unique quality of its Manuka Honing and is recognizable by the Manuka New Zealand logo and the gold MGO guarantee indication.

Professor Thomas Henle discovered Methylglyoxal (MGO) in Manuka Honey in 2006 and has done a lot of research since then. Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a naturally occurring compound in Manuka Honey and provides its unique bioactivity. Methylglyoxal (MGO) is measured in miligrams per kilogram and can range from 100+ to 1000+ Methylglyoxal (MGO) / kg. Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a very important compound to pay attention to when purchasing Manuka Honey. MGO 100+ is equivalent to 100 mg / kg of Methylglyoxal (MGO).
