Is it real manuka?
Manuka MGO Honey is a dark, creamy honey with scientifically proven anti-bacterial qualities. This honey is harvested by bees from the native Manuka Bush. Manuka flowers have a strong aromatic fragrance and when freshly opened, are full of nectar and much sought after by the honey-bees. The bush flowers only once a year for six weeks, so the harvesting period is very short, making this honey a highly valued product of New Zeland.
MGO Manuka Honey contains measured amounts of the ingredient in Manuka, Methylglyoxal. Every batch of MGO Manuka Honey is tested in an ISO 17025 certified in-house laboratory from raw material to finished product to monitor and guarantee the levels of bioactives.
