Manuka Honey 250+

Manuka Honey 250+ mgo - What do the numbers mean?

The numbers on a label of Honey Paihia manuka honey 250+ mgo are basically a measurement of purity of the nectar that our bees made the manuka honey 250+ from.  The larger the number, which measures the special ingredient, methylglyoxal in milligrams per kilogram, the purer the manuka honey.  There are a series of tests for manuka honey 250+ to pass before it can be called manuka honey when it is being exported from New Zealand.  Generally when a manuka honey tests 250+ and above for methylglyoxal in milligrams per kilogram of honey it is considered monofloral manuka honey, meaning it's from a single manuka honey nectar source.  This scale can go from 25+ to 1200+ or in rare cases even more.
