Manuka Honey measures the antibacterial effectiveness or bioactivity using the internationally recognised MGO rating system. Only honey with an MGO score of 100 or more can be called bioactive. All our Manuka Honey is bioactive, ranging from MGO100 to MGO1150. The higher the MGO rating, the higher the bioactivity of our honey.
Raw honey is only strained before it’s bottled, which means it retains most of the beneficial nutrients and antioxidants that it naturally contains. Conversely, regular honey may undergo a variety of processing, which may remove beneficial nutrients like pollen and reduce its level of antioxidants.
