MGO 400+ Manuka Honey comes in two handy jar sizes and this is the smaller 250g jar.
With an MGO rating of 400+ this is quite a high rating and only the MGO 550+ Manuka Honey has a higher level.
For consumers interested in manuka honey’s world famous natural characteristics, the MGO rating refers to the level of methylglyoxal (MGO), which is a naturally occurring compound that Manuka Health and its German research partners discovered as being one of the key markers that must be there for the honey to be considered a genuine manuka honey.
The flower of the manuka tree is all important in the process as bees feed off the flower to make the honey, which is a monofloral honey.
The manuka tree has long been used in traditional medicine for its healing properties so it should perhaps not be a surprise that honey made from its nectar is also unique. It was only through the research conducted by Manuka Health and its German partners that led to the discovery of the importance of methylglyoxal or MGO.
MGO 400+ Manuka Honey is tested at Manuka Health’s laboratory so consumers can be sure that they are getting a genuine manuka honey.
The MGO rating system differs from the other widely recognized manuka honey trademark UMF, or Unique Manuka Factor, but both give assurances that it is a quality product.
Manuka honey in its medical grade form has been developed to make wound care and skin care products.
MGO 400+ Manuka Honey is a delicious manuka honey with a strong taste and also has versatile uses as a sweetener or then just enjoy it from the jar. Note that children who are below the age of one should not eat honey.
