UMF and MGO ratings compared

Three signature compounds measured

Only the UMF testing process measures all three signature compounds, Leptosperin, DHA and Methylglyoxal (MGO), that together indicate high quality, authentic Manuka honey – while other systems measure only one or two. This process gives you a much more comprehensive and assured view of what’s in your honey.

We cannot guarantee the accuracy of other systems of measurement, but here’s an approximate MGO vs UMF conversion guide: 

UMF5+ Manuka honey has a minimum MGO rating of 83, equal to a minimum UMF rating of 5.

UMF10+ Manuka honey has a minimum MGO rating of 263, equal to a minimum UMF rating of 10.

UMF15+ Manuka honey has a minimum MGO rating of 514, equal to a minimum UMF rating of 15.

UMF18+ Manuka honey has a minimum MGO rating of 696, equal to a minimum UMF rating of 18.

UMF20+ Manuka honey has a minimum MGO rating of 829, equal to a minimum UMF rating of 20.
