Authentic UMF Mānuka honey is evaluated using three naturally occurring, distinctive chemical markers: leptosperin, DHA, and methylglyoxal (MGO).
Methylglyoxal (often referred to as MGO) is frequently the only factor assessed by producers; unfortunately, this has a huge drawback in that MGO may be chemically added to honey, which means that conventional honey can easily claim to be Mānuka honey.
Leptosperin is a unique indicator of Mānuka honey because it is exclusively found in the Mānuka flower. To ensure that you are purchasing authentic Mānuka honey from New Zealand-grown Leptosperin, seek for the UMF seal.
DHA indicates the age of honey. Before packaging, the honey's age is determined.
One of the numerous advantages of being a member of the UMFHA (Unique Mānuka Factor Honey Association) and displaying the trademark is that we are independently audited annually. The UMFHA invests extensively in research to ensure that the appropriate natural chemical indicators are examined.
Hence, if you intend to purchase Mānuka honey, ensure that it bears the UMF trademark symbol; otherwise, you may not be receiving an authentic product with all the Mānuka's health benefits.
We guarantee the honey in your jar will always reflect the UMF grade stated on the label, making 100% Pure New Zealand Honey label-accurate. We also ensure, through our purity and quality standards, that our honey has no artificial ingredients.
