Your Guide to UMF™ Manuka Honey: Understanding the Gold Standard

UMF™ Manuka honey is renowned for its exceptional quality and potency, backed by the New Zealand government. In this guide, we’ll delve into the intricacies of UMF™ Manuka honey, helping you distinguish between genuine quality and mere marketing hype.

The UMF™ Manuka Honey Rating System: Understanding the Numbers

The UMF number is a crucial indicator of the unique compounds found in Manuka honey, ensuring its purity and quality. These compounds include Leptosperin, DHA, and Methylglyoxal (MGO), all of which play a significant role in determining the honey’s grade.

Leptosperin: The Signature of Authenticity

Leptosperin is a key marker found in the nectar of Manuka flowers. It is the most important characteristic that distinguishes Manuka honey from other types of honey, serving as a reliable indicator of its authenticity and quality.

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA): The Precursor to MGO

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a natural plant compound present in the nectar of Manuka flowers. Over time, DHA converts to MGO in Manuka honey as it matures, contributing to its unique properties and health benefits.

Methylglyoxal (MGO): The Antibacterial Powerhouse

Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the primary compound responsible for the antibacterial properties of Manuka honey. It forms the basis of the UMF™ grading system, indicating the potency and effectiveness of the honey.

Four-Factor Quality Testing: Ensuring Authenticity and Potency

The UMFHA standard is the only one that tests for four key elements of Manuka honey: Potency, Authenticity, Shelf Life, and Freshness. This comprehensive testing process guarantees that you are getting a high-quality and genuine product.
