Where does the name “Manuka” come from?
This honey owes its name Manuka to the Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand.
They called the South Sea myrtle native there Manuka.
The importance of MGO/UMF
MGO stands for methylglyoxal, the ingredient to which Manuka honey owes its fame and is appreciated worldwide.
The numerical value on the label indicates the amount of MGO contained in the honey. In the ripening process, this value increases, hence the indication MGO 400+. The Unique Manuka Factor, UMF for short, is another way to indicate the value of a Manuka honey. Since the discovery of Methylglyoxal by the Technical University of Dresden, MGO is the more common designation of a Manuka Honey.
The peculiarity of Manuka honey
In addition to its special properties, Manuka honey is by nature strictly limited. The reason for this is the short flowering period of the Manuka plant. The bees therefore have only a few weeks to collect the sweet nectar for this unique honey specialty.
