Best Manuka Honey To Buy

Apart being used as a natural sweetener, honey has long been advocated for its health-enhancing properties because it can be a natural remedy for:

Reducing cough and throat irritation

Alleviating sore throats

Reducing gastrointestinal disorders like peptic ulcer, acid reflux, indigestion, heartburn, nausea and vomiting, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea and gastroenteritis

Regulating blood sugar levels

Curing burns and wounds

Acting as an antibacterial, antifungal and antiinflammatory agent

Getting rid of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

One particular type of honey which is gaining more and more popularity is manuka honey which is produced from the manuka bush or New Zealand tea tree(Leptospermum scoparium) by introduced European honey bees which forage on it. There are two types of manuka honey ie the raw manuka honey and the ordinary manuka honey. The raw version is in its natural state whereas the ordinary version has been processed.

When purchasing manuka honey, always check whether there is UMF or MGO on the product label. UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor which is a quality trademark and is an indication for natural undenatured manuka honey, hence you can rest assured of the quality and purity of the honey. The number on the right of UMF is how potent the manuka honey is in terms of its antibacterial and healing power, the higher that number, the more potent it becomes. A UMF of 5+ or 10+ can be used for daily health maintenance but if you want more antibacterial properties from the manuka honey, choose one with at least a UMF of 15. A manuka honey with an UMF of 20 and above is definitely one with high antibacterial properties and even more beneficial for health.

As for MGO, it stands for Methylglyoxal and is an antibacterial component. While UMF is the industry standard for determining the strength of the antibacterial properties of the manuka honey, MGO is exclusively used by Manuka Health New Zealand Ltd but both indicate the power of the antibiotic qualities and antibacterial benefits of the manuka honey. The higher the MGO number, the more potent the manuka honey is. If you see either UMF or MGO, you can trust the quality of the product. As a general guideline, check out the conversion guide of UMF vs MGO below:

UMF 5+ = A minimum UMF rating of 5 and a minimum MGO rating of 83 (Premium Grade)
UMF 10+ = A minimum UMF rating of 10 and a minimum MGO rating of 261 (Super Premium Grade)
UMF 15+ = A minimum UMF rating of 15 and a minimum MGO rating of 514 (Super Premium Grade)
UMF 18+ = A minimum UMF rating of 18 and a minimum MGO rating of 692 (Ultra Premium Grade)
UMF 20+ = A minimum UMF rating of 20 and a minimum MGO rating of 829 (Ultra Premium Grade)

Manuka honey can be enjoyed on toast, oatmeal, yogurt, high protein pancakes, protein shakes, smoothies, straight off the spoon, favorite tea but can also be applied as an ointment on wounds and burns.
