Manuka Health has grown from a living room operation to a global producer and distributor of manuka honey, manuka honey skin care and health products, as well as other bee and pollen related products all within the space of a few years.
Manuka Health’s MGO 400+ Manuka Honey is one of its range of manuka honeys that has a high MGO rating. The rating refers to the naturally occurring compound methylglyoxal (MGO), which is one of the chemical markers that have to be present if a honey is to be considered genuine manuka.
This particular jar means that it has a minimum of 400 mg/kg of methylglyoxal.
Many people have heard about manuka honey and there is an increasing body of research work too that has examined its various properties.
MGO 400+ Manuka Honey is the result of pioneering work by Manuka Health and is a certified and tested honey.
This is important for consumers who are keen to know they are getting a genuine manuka honey. The rating system has been developed by the company itself in collaboration with a research team in Germany after they discovered the importance of methylglyoxal (MGO).
Alongside the UMF or Unique Manuka Factor label, which is a different certification system, consumers can be sure they are getting a high quality manuka honey.
Manuka Health also prides itself on its sustainable practices and respect for the natural environment. The honey processing system does not use any chemicals and the honey can be traced from the beehive to the shelf.
MGO 400+ Manuka Honey is a strong tasting honey characteristic of the special manuka taste. You can enjoy it as it comes from the jar or then use it in cooking for both sweet and savoury dishes. Manuka honey is truly one of nature’s gifts.
NB: children below the age of one are advised against eating honey.
