What is UMF(Unique Manuka Factor? What does it say about Honey?
Tested batches of Manuka Honey are given a UMF® rating, depending on their tested antibacterial activity. A UMF® rating of 10 is the minimum activity to gain the UMF rating and thus be considered useful in serious applications. Honey achieving this rating is commonly referred to as Active Manuka Honey.
While Manuka honey is fairly widely available, it is considered that only that which carries the UMF® registered trademark should be chosen if the intended use is for therapeutic purposes, and the majority of recent medical trial have predominantly used manuka honey with a UMF strength of 10 or more. The Active Manuka Honey that you can order at this web site (click on the “store” button in the top navigation ) has a UMF rating of 15 one of the highest UMF ratings available today.
The importance of the UMF rating system
Please take the time to read and understand the importance of the ‘UMF’ rating system for Manuka Honey. While Manuka Honey has received increasing press coverage, many journalists do not distinguish between ordinary Manuka Honey and Active Manuka Honey.
The UMF rating is your key indicator as to the strength of the antibacterial effect. A rating of 10 or more is considered to be suitable for therapeutic medical use. Such honey is referred to as ‘active’, although much ordinary Manuka Honey is still marketed as being active despite not having the required minimal rating.
The UMF rating is your guarantee that the honey has been tested and verified for its antibacterial activity by the University of Waikato in New Zealand.
