GRADES & QUALITY
Each PURAO® Manuka Honey product guarantees the quality and grade on each pack. We use the ‘MGO’ grade to show you the quality of each product.
‘MGO’ is the grade that appraises the natural marker methylglyoxal (MGO) found in Manuka Honey, and assures purity and quality. It has been reviewed by the Ministry for Primary Industries of New Zealand (the New Zealand Government) to ensure that it meets legislative requirements. As well, we independently test for MGO and other key authenticity markers in Manuka Honey so you know PURAO® Manuka Honey is genuine.
PURAO® also tests for the recently discovered Leptosperin marker, which is unique to Manuka Honey. Leptosperin is an abundant, stable and scientifically researched marker that is unique to Manuka Honey. Buying PURAO® Manuka Honey means you receive the genuine product.
