Additional Information

A quick introduction to MGO and UMF

MGO and UMF are two genuine and authentic indicators of honey quality, purity, potency, and methylglyoxal content. These grading systems rate honey varieties on different characteristics, telling you how beneficial the honey is for your health upkeep. It evaluates the amounts of bioactive compounds present in raw manuka honey. Despite being similar in many aspects, they differ too.

For Methylglyoxal, we use MGO (abbreviation), which only focuses on counting the amount of Methylglyoxal. It ranks honey as per MGO levels indicating the quality. A Higher MGO rating proves a higher concentration of MGO offering remarkable antimicrobial properties.

For UMF, we use the Unique Manuka Factor, which measures not only MGO content but also looks into plenty of other healthful bioactive factors. It explains both the quality and purity.

Is MGO or UMF Better?

In one way or another, they are linked to the honey in the same manner as both are considered to be the best indicators of honey’s quality and purity. We cannot say which one is a better option because they look into different traits of honey. Yes, you can compare the values, which will help you choose the purest, highest-quality honey.

Parity Chart

Both standards vary widely but can be associated with each other to some extent. Here is a parity chart of estimated values:

UMF 5 = MGO83

UMF10 = MGO263

UMF15 = MGO514

UMF20 = MGO829

UMF25 = MGO1200

What Level of Manuka Honey is Best?

The honey, which shows the highest content (quantity) of MGO, is the most beneficial option as it promises to provide you with the maximum antiviral and antimicrobial benefits. As per the scale of UMF:

  • Honey with MGO 514 - MGO 1200 tops the chart with the highest concentration of bioactive compounds (MGO), best used against skin issues and wound healing.
  • Honey with MGO 263 - MGO 514 comes with the nearly maximum MGO strength, best used for curative purposes.
  • Honey with MGO 83 - MGO 263 is at the bottom of the chart with milder properties, making it acceptable to be consumed daily, but it still has high potency to keep you safe from mild to moderate health problems.
