A monster-size jar of MGO 100+ Manuka Honey – a high quality honey produced by Manuka Health; a company that started out relatively recently in the founder’s living room in 2006 and has grown to become one of the world’s largest producers of manuka honey and honey-related products.
Dramatic growth has not meant sacrificing the natural origin of the manuka honey itself and the company has set in place a variety of sustainable practices and quality assurance measures that mean the honey can be traced at all stages from the beehive right to the shelf and no chemicals enter that process at all: just plain delicious manuka honey.
Manuka Health is also the company behind the MGO rating system of manuka honey.
MGO stands for methylglyoxal, which the company and its German research colleagues in Dresden discovered as being the compound that is responsible for manuka honey’s well-documented natural characteristics.
It is a different system to the other well-known trademark UMF or Unique Manuka Factor, but consumers will know that this is a genuine manuka honey. Manuka Health consider this MGO 100+ Manuka Honey to be a moderate level of MGO, although the brand has others that have a rating as high as 550+.
Manuka honey is famed for its natural properties and there is considerable ongoing research into all of these properties. The honey must contain this naturally occurring element methylglyoxal (MGO) for it to be considered a genuine manuka honey.
Manuka Health has also pioneered research into the honey and has recently launched a range of wound care products that are made with medical grade manuka honey.
However, this 1 kg MGO 100+ Manuka Honey is suitable for everyday munching! Use it in cooking, or eat it from the jar, whatever way you use it just savour the taste of one of nature’s wonders.
Note: children below the age of one are not recommended to consume honey.
