What are different grades of manuka honey for?
UMF and MGO are standardised indicators of the concentration of some of the bioactive chemical compounds found in manuka honey in any given sample of the stuff.
Bioactive chemical compounds, when applied to your skin or digested in your digestive tract, are able to give your body unique assistance in resisting infection, improving skin health and aiding digestion.
UMF and MGO are two individual grading systems.
UMF is an acronym meaning Unique Manuka Factor.
UMF is a complete and advanced grading system.It incorporates the measurement of MG (MGO) levels, but also includes additional testing of authenticity markers of the Manuka Honey. This includes dihydroxyacetone and leptosperin. UMF is an indicator of quality and purity of manuka honey.
MGO stands for methylglyoxal, the naturally occurring compound that makes Manuka Honey so unique. An MGO rating is a standardised measure of methyglyoxal content and is an indicator of quality.
Low grades, between UMF 5 and UMF 10 are Table Grade Manuka Honey.
These honeys are safe for daily ingestion.
Low to mid grades of UMF 10 to UMF 15 are called Therapeutic Grade.
These honeys are good for short term consumption. Stronger grades have more potency.This means they can fight more powerful or even dangerous bacterial infections.
Any honeys from UMF15 to UMF20 are Antibacterial Grade and useful for skin therapy.
UMF20 to UMF25 is a Superior Antibacterial Grade, for very bad wounds.
