Quality factors that matter in mānuka honey

MGO for potency

Methylglyoxal, to give it its full name, is the source of golden Mānuka honey’s special antibacterial properties and an important potency measure. The higher the MGO, the stronger the concentration of MGO. The UMFTM guarantee means that you can be sure that Mānuka honey bearing the UMFTM mark contains the special activity.


Leptosperin is a compound found only in mānuka flower nectar and can only be created by nature. Measuring this unique component ensures the authenticity of Mānuka
honey. Laboratory research also shows leptosperin content has anti-inflammatory properties that grows as the UMFTM scale increases.


Dihydroxyacetone is slowly converted to MGO in healthy
living honey. The higher the DHA content, the longer the life of the MGO content in your Mānuka honey – which is why the best mānuka honey must have more than 70 mg/ kg DHA to be UMFTM certified.


We test for hydroxymethylfurfural, since this long-named compound assures honey has not been overheated or stored too long, and is in the best condition to maintain
the unique blend of living properties in mānuka honey as
promised by your favourite supplier.

The UMF Rating System

Real New Zealand Mānuka honey contains over 2,300 unique components that contribute to its complex flavour and its remarkable benefits. The UMFTM Four Factor Quality Assurance Test independently certifies the quality factors that matter and summarises them in a single figure. It validates Potency, Authenticity, Freshness, and Purity of honest Mānuka honey and verifies the genuine UMFTM rating of each batch. No other honey undergoes such rigorous testing by a bee-keeper’s country mile. We build on the New Zealand government’s Mānuka honey identification tests by ensuring certainty around purity, potency, authenticity and freshness – making the UMFTM rating the only option for anyone seeking independent assurance that their purchase will support their health and wellness.
