The Power of Mānuka Honey

Mānuka is a Maori word and our ancestors knew all about special powers of the Mānuka tree. We only have to break down the word Mānuka itself to find that our ancestors understood it was a ‘device’ (nuka) for making something clean (ma). Thus, different parts of the Mānuka tree were used traditionally for antiseptic purposes.

The Scientific Evidence of Mānuka Honey

Mānuka Honey can only be described now as a phenomenon. It has been shown through scientific studies across the world to have many beneficial properties, that make it so highly valued and sought after. To sample some of this evidence we simply refer you here to the studies of Dr Peter Molan who was famed as the discoverer of the special properties of Mānuka Honey. Beyond this you can just google yourself and find many more!

MGO vs UMF Ratings for Mānuka Honey

MGO NPA or UMF equivalent
MGO 30+ 2.7 +
MGO 100+ 6+
MGO 200+ 8+
MGO 300+ 11+
MGO 400+ 13+
MGO 500+ 15+

The properties of Mānuka Honey can vary depending on what it contains. The naturally-occurring compound in Mānuka Honey that makes it so special is methylglyoxal (we use MG for short).

All honey producers in New Zealand measure the level of methylglyoxal in their Mānuka Honey to see how good it is. This is why we have simply adopted the methylglyoxal content itself as the rating system for our honey – it’s simple, direct and honest – what you see is exactly what you are getting.

If you are used to other ways of rating Mānuka Honey then you may find it useful to refer to the table to the left. Note that the MG rating is the actual methyglyoxal measured in the honey, and the NPA or UMF scales are a conversion from the MG rating – not an actual measure of content in the honey.

Certification of Our Mānuka Honey

All our Mānuka Honey is tested by an independent internationally-accredited laboratory (such as Analytica or Hills) for methylglyoxal content that sets the rating that we apply for the honey. This certification behind every jar of our Mānuka Honey gives you confidence in the quality of our product.

Mānuka Honey – Remarkable Properties

Mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium) grows as a shrub or small tree up to 6 m tall, in forest edges or areas of reverting pasture. The flowers are small and designed to be pollinated by native bees and flies, but the honey bee also works this flower to produce this remarkable honey.

Our ancestors used Mānuka for a range of medicinal purposes – the bark was boiled and the infusion drunk or applied externally to relieve pain.  Infusions of the bark, capsules and seed were also applied to burns and wounds, or for treating mouth, throat and eye affliction, and to reduce fever. Mānuka was also used to treat wounds on horses and other domestic animals.

Mānuka Honey is now world-famed for its unique properties. New Zealand’s food regulations do not allow us to promote the benefits of Mānuka Honey for human health, but Mānuka Honey has been the focus of extensive scientific research that tells a compelling story of well-being and healing! Just google to find this out for yourself.

Science has shown that methyglyoxal (MG or MGO) is the compound occurring naturally in Mānuka Honey that makes it so special. That’s why we measure the MG in our Mānuka Honey and use this as our rating system. It’s clear, honest and directly based on what Mānuka Honey actually contains, unlike other rating systems or trademarks that do not refer directly to MG or MGO.

Our Mānuka Honey is an amber honey, with that distinctive medicinal and earthy taste, but it is lighter on the palate than some other Mānuka Honeys. Use Mānuka Honey daily as an elixir or tonic, for drinks and in your cooking for that special dish.
