FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY MELORA

What is it important to look for when buying Mānuka honey?

  • UMF rating: This stands for Unique Mānuka Factor and is a grading system used to measure the potency of Mānuka honey. Look for a UMF rating of 10 or higher, as this indicates that the honey has a high concentration of antibacterial compounds.
  • MGO rating: This stands for Methylglyoxal and is another grading system used to measure the potency of Mānuka honey. Look for an MGO rating of at least 40, as this indicates that the honey has a minimum level of antibacterial activity.
  • Packed in: Look for Mānuka that has been packed in New Zealand, then it will have had to adhere to New Zealand Government's Ministry for Primary Industries standards and export certification.

Packaging: Mānuka honey should be packaged in a dark container to protect it from light, which can degrade its antibacterial properties. It is also important to check the expiration date and ensure that the seal is intact.

What is Mānuka Honey and what do I need to know about it?

  • Mānuka honey is a type of honey that is produced in New Zealand from the nectar of the Mānuka tree. It is known for its antibacterial properties and is used for a variety of purposes, including wound healing, digestive health, and skincare. Here are a few things to know about Mānuka honey:
  • The antibacterial activity of Mānuka honey is due to the presence of a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO), which is found in high concentrations in Mānuka honey.

Mānuka Honey comes from the Leptospermum Scoparium flower that is indigenous to New Zealand. Mānuka Honey is graded with an MGO and UMF™, there is a scientific correlation between the two.

UMF™ graded honey is the only honey that has been independently tested and audited. The UMF™ grade represents the signature compounds of the honey, which guarantees first-class quality and purity. The UMF™ affiliation additionally guarantees the Mānuka has been produced and packed in New Zealand, meets its label claim, guaranteed levels of MGO and meets the New Zealand authorities preferred for Mānuka Honey.

What does MGO mean and which number should I buy?

MGO stands for Methylglyoxal, that's the call of the chemical marker which offers Mānuka honey its antimicrobial activity.

Which is superior Mānuka honey or regular honey?

Regular honey is a great source of energy and has many outstanding properties, the distinction among normal honey and Mānuka honey is the presence of naturally occurring MGO Methylglyoxal, which measures the anti-microbial activity. Mānuka Honey can measure the extent of MGO and this stays stable for the duration of its shelf life, this is unique to Mānuka Honey.

How long can you keep Mānuka honey when it has been opened?

Mānuka honey can be stored for a long time, the general shelf life of UMF Mānuka honey is circa 4 years. Store in a cool dry place.

Honey doesn’t really expire, however after the 4 years the MGO level may reduce. For daily consumption and everyday wellbeing, the Mānuka will be good for a few years after expiry, if purchased from a reputable supplier.

If the Mānuka has been kept in heat and has liquefied, then do put the Mānuka in the fridge and it will harden.
