UMF and MGO are the two globally recognised and accepted Manuka honey grading systems. To prevent customer confusion, PURITI jars are labelled clearly and accurately with both UMF and MGO grading standards.
PURITI MGO levels are significantly higher than the UMF minimum requirement and apply to all products sold within New Zealand and not just for exported products.
PURITI HONEY TESTING STANDARDS
Although the MPI Science Definition does not apply to Manuka sold within New Zealand, PURITI has voluntarily adopted test standards at a level of 10% - 100% higher than the export standard. We make all our Manuka honey to this standard (not just our export honey).
PURITI products are also tested for Glyphosate contamination. Glyphosate is an extensively used herbicide that is used on farms, gardens, streets, and parks. There is growing evidence that it can cause health-related issues and is carcinogenic. Because Glyphosate is so widely used, and its residue can be found in some foods, PURITI has decided to have a zero tolerance policy for it being present.
You can be assured that PURITI Manuka honey contains no Glyphosate residue. We want you to experience all the Manuka health benefits, antibacterial properties and other unique properties without any added health risks.
