About MGO & UMF
MGO and UMF are two different indicators used to gauge the quality and purity of manuka honey. Both the MGO and UMF ratings can help you decide which variety of honey will suit you best - but in different ways.
MGO or the methylglyoxal (MG) levels of honey are important. MG is responsible for the special antimicrobial properties of manuka honey. The higher the MGO rating of manuka honey, the more the levels of methylglyoxal and the better it's quality.
UMF is a different grading system. It stands for the Unique Manuka Factor. The UMF rating measures the levels of some bio-actives exclusive to manuka honey in addition to its MG levels. It is considered an indication of the honey’s purity as well as quality.
Is MGO or UMF Better?
Both are useful indicators in their own right. They both measure different things so they cannot be compared directly. But both MGO and UMF grading systems can help you decide which variety and potency of raw manuka honey will suit your purpose best.
What Level of Manuka Honey is Best?
Raw high-grade varieties of manuka honey (with higher MGO or UMF values) are better for therapeutic use, topical application, and cosmetic purposes since they are more potent.
Milder table grade varieties are suitable for everyday consumption. If you are taking manuka honey for health reasons, using medium-grade honey might work best for you:
