The UMF® grading system has two components which are expressed on any UMF® licenced honey product:

WHAT IS MANUKA HONEY?
Manuka honey is collected from Manuka (Leptospermum Scoparium) flowers. This flower is only available from New Zealand’s most pure and remote locations. Renowned for its rich flavour, Manuka Honey is recognised worldwide for its unique properties not found in ordinary honey. With a flowering season of just 2-6 weeks a year, it is one of nature's special gifts.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HONEY?
Manuka has been used medicinally for aiding sore throats, skin conditions and digestion. Medical Manuka honey has been clinically proven to promote wound healing and reduce risk of infection1.
WHAT IS THE SCIENCE BEHIND MANUKA HONEY?
All honey has varying levels of anti-bacterial activity from hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide is affected by heat, light, time and commercial processing2. Manuka honey is unique because it contains a natural activity, ie Methylglyoxal (MG), which displays significant antibacterial effects than Hydrogen Peroxide3. In vitro studies have revealed that the Manuka honey is effective against several bacteria3.
Methylglyoxal (MG) can be added into honey, this is why at Comvita, we test for all 3 naturally occurring chemical markers: Leptosperin, Methylglyoxal (MG) and Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), in order to ensure the best quality genuine UMF® Manuka honey.
WHAT IS UMF?
UMF® stands for "Unique Manuka Factor". The UMF grading system appraises natural markers found in Manuka honey, and assures purity & quality. The UMF® number indicates the level of the unique Manuka properties within the honey. The higher the grade the higher the purity, this only applies to UMF® graded honey.
