MGO 550+ Manuka Honey 500g

‹Return to Previous Page


MGO 550+ Manuka Honey is a super manuka honey from Manuka Health and for those with an interest in buying a genuine manuka honey with exceptionally high level of MGO this is the highest in the range.

The figure 550+ refers to the level of methylglyoxal (MGO), which is the compound present in manuka honey that must be present if the honey is to be considered genuine manuka honey, and 550+ means the honey contains at least 550 mg/kg of methylglyoxal.

The MGO rating system for manuka honey is a trademark that is recognized in over 35 countries and was developed by Manuka Health in conjunction with a research team at the Technical University of Dresden in Germany.

Manuka Health has also invested in ensuring the sustainability of its operations and the quality of all its honey products, which can be traced from the beehive to the shelf. MGO 550+ Manuka Honey is tested at Manuka Health’s in-house laboratory to ensure the honey contains the all-important methylglyoxal.

The MGO rating system differs from the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) trademark but consumers can be sure that when they buy a manuka honey with either label that they are getting a genuine product.

Manuka honey is the subject to all kinds of research and currently the medical grade form of the honey is used in various wound and skin care products.

MGO 550+ Manuka Honey is a full flavoured honey with a strong taste of herbs and minerals. Infants below the age of one are not recommended to eat honey.
