MGO Manuka Power
MGO stands for methylglyoxal, the naturally occurring compound that makes Manuka honey so special.
Our research partner – Professor Thomas Henle (University of Dresden) and his team – discovered MGO as the magic ingredient in Manuka honey, a discovery long sought after in the science world.
In 2008 Manuka Health pioneered MGO testing as a more precise and reliable method of grading Manuka honey, based on this ground-breaking research.
Not all Manuka honey is created equal and MGO levels can vary greatly. Every jar of Manuka Health MGO™ Manuka Honey is tested and certified for natural MGO content. The MGO number tells you how much MGO is in your jar of honey – simple.
