Honey is one of the healthiest natural sweeteners in the world, but one type of honey stands a cut above the rest. A natural sweetener and superfood, manuka honey offers a number of health benefits while adding a flavorful twist to your favorite snacks and desserts.
The Health Ranger Store understands how difficult it is for consumers to find reliable brands of superior quality honey, which is why we've partnered with trusted vendors in Australia to bring back lab-verified Health Ranger Select Premium Manuka Honey MGO 514+ (15+ NPA).
Packed with antioxidants and other health-promoting compounds, our premium manuka honey has an MGO rating of at least 514 and a guaranteed NPA rating of at least 15. This raw honey is certified Kosher and Halal. It is non-China and has been thoroughly lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
Honey has been utilized as both a superfood and natural remedy for thousands of years. In fact, cultures around the globe have recognized it for being a potent antioxidant. Manuka honey comes from bees that pollinate the Leptospermum scoparium plant, which is found in New Zealand and along the East Coast of Australia’s pristine bushlands and forests. With its unique health-promoting properties, manuka honey is one of the most potent and beneficial forms of honey in the world.
What makes manuka honey unique is its naturally occurring methylglyoxal (MGO). This component of the manuka flower’s nectar is believed to give manuka honey its health-promoting benefits. Honey with a high MGO rating indicates superior quality. With its impressive MGO rating, the beneficial properties of manuka honey are much more potent and stable than those of regular types of honey.
Health Ranger Select Premium Manuka Honey MGO 514+ (15+ NPA) rates at least 514 in MGO and 15 in NPA. The actual lab test performed on Batch No. M19051 by the lab at the University of the Sunshine Coast indicates an MGO content of 586 ppm and NPA of 16.2. With the bioactive fraction of MGO contained in the nectar of these manuka flowers, manuka honey's nutritional and immune-supporting capabilities significantly exceed that of regular honey.
For commercial reasons, there are different symbols to represent the activity strength of manuka honey. The most common are NPA, UMF and MGO.
NPA – All honeys possess a natural property known as peroxide activity, which contributes to their health benefits. However, the compound responsible for this activity in regular honey is unstable and loses its effectiveness when exposed to air or light. Manuka honey, on the other hand, has non-peroxide activity (NPA), which is provided by a highly effective and more stable compound. The NPA of manuka honey from New Zealand and Australia allows it to remain potent even when exposed to heat, air or sunlight.
MGO – MGO stands for methylglyoxal, a naturally occurring compound found only in manuka honey. It is measured in parts per million (ppm) and is used as an indicator of the strength of manuka honey's NPA.
UMF – Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) is based on the amount of beneficial compounds present in manuka honey. Developed by the UMF Honey Association in New Zealand, it is a quality trademark that guarantees the authenticity of a manuka product.
Dr. Peter Molan (MBE), a professor at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, first discovered the NPA effects of manuka honey. In 1998, he announced that a new trademark for the UMF had been registered.
These three symbols are very closely correlated. See the conversion chart below
*MGO is measured as mg/kg (ppm)
**NPA is measured as % solution (%w/v) of phenol/water
Often considered the healthiest type of honey, manuka honey possesses unique health-promoting properties that allow it to offer numerous health benefits.
