The UMF Honey Association has a world-leading science programme that is focussed on identifying the unique signature compounds of genuine Mānuka Honey, as a way of safeguarding consumers and the industry.
The UMF® testing process measures all three signature compounds, Leptosperin, DHA and Methylglyoxal (MGO), that together indicate high quality, authentic Manuka honey
What UMF and MGO Stands for in our Manuka Honey
UMF® (Unique Mānuka Factor) and MGO (Methylglyoxal) are both valid methods of measuring the non-peroxide activity of Mānuka honey. UMF® measures the activity itself and MGO measures the major compound producing that activity. The important thing is not to be fooled by other claims for ‘activity’ or health benefits in Manuka honey.
UMF 5+ = MGO 85
UMF 10+ = MGO 265
UMF 15+ = MGO 525
UMF 20+ = MGO 830
