How to Choose your Honey

Not all Mānuka honey is created equally. So it’s important to know what to look for on the label.

All pure monofloral Mānuka Honeys come in varying degrees of strength.  Different brands use different grading systems to highlight the strength.  UMF and MGO/MG are the most commonly used grading systems and the most trusted.

If a honey doesn’t have a rating then generally it’s considered a Mānuka Honey Blend or Multifloral Mānuka Honey - these delicious pots of honey still contain Mānuka Honey but they contain lower levels of Mānuka Honey than those with a UMF/MGO rating. Mānuka Honey Blends or Multifloral Mānuka Honey are generally cheaper and contain honey from the nectar of many flowers, or have been blended with other types of honey. 

Here’s how the UMF and MGO/MG ratings line up:



UMF and MGO Ratings
