Manuka honey is farmed and harvested in the rural unpolluted pastures of New Zealand. The indigenous Maori population recognises the unique activity of Manuka Honey and has been using it for centuries. Not only did they value it as part of their diet, they also knew about its antibacterial and antiseptic power for internal and external treatment of
wounds and ailments.
The South Sea myrtle occurs only in the remote, untouched mountain regions of New
Zealand. Busy bees collect nectar from their flowers, which contains a substance called dihydroxyacetone. When the nectar has been processed into honey - the famous Manuka honey - in the beehive, methylglyoxal, also known as MGO, is created from dihydroxyacetone, to which the effects known to the indigenous people are ascribed.
The big advantage of Manuka Honey is its high content of the sugar breakdown product methylglyoxal - in short MGO. The higher the MGO content, the greater its health benefits. Manuka Honey therefore differs significantly from conventional honey which does not contain this special substance.
Pure Gold Manuka Honey has a pleasant taste and a smooth, velvety mellifluousness - it simply tastes delicious spoon by spoon and is a powerful, valuable contribution to an active
The higher the MGO content of Manuka honey, the more of the active ingredient methylglyoxal it contains and the greater its effect. The highest quality Manuka honeys have a content of MGO 400+ and higher and are best suited for problems of the gastrointestinal tract or the urinary tract.
But even a Manuka honey with MGO 100+ already contains an effective amount of methyglyoxal, but in a weakened form. Manuka honeys with an MGO value of 100+ and 200+ are good for the prevention and treatment of colds or for external wound treatment.
Manuka honey has antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties due to its natural ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO). It is not only good for colds, but has many uses.
Externally, Manuka honey can be used for skin infections and to accelerate wound healing. It has also been shown to have a positive effect on ailments of the mouth, throat, nose, urinary tract and gastrointestinal tract.
The effect of Manuka Honey has been investigated in many independent studies. It is particularly suitable for:
Pure Gold Manuka Honey is tested by an internationally
accredited New Zealand Government approved laboratory for MGO (dietary
methylglyoxal), the key component that endows Manuka honey with its unique
properties. This honey complies to New Zealand MPI standards which identify
this as genuine Manuka honey.
In the Wairarapa region of New Zealand’s North Island,
which is also known as the ‘Glistening Waters’, the Manuka tree grows in
abundance. Pure Gold Manuka Honey is harvested here and in areas local to Cape
Runaway and Whakatane, in the Bay of Plenty, guaranteeing its Manuka
authenticity. The 3,000 hives we own produce genuine Manuka honey of high-quality.
Once tested, honey is then sent to our own facility
where each jar is packed and checked individually.
All our hives are managed individually by a team of
beekeepers to ensure the wellbeing of each colony. In addition, each hive has a
GPS locator to ensure full traceability from hive to jar. Manuka honey is
harvested during December and January when the Manuka flower is in bloom.
MGO stands for methylglyoxal, the unique component
containing extraordinary properties of Manuka honey. The MGO system is becoming
widely adopted and is considered to be the most precise reflection of the
activity of Manuka honey.
Each of our jars are branded with the MGO rating of
the honey inside. The higher the number, the greater the strength.

Manuka honey can be taken as part of a balanced diet with one tablespoon per day, preferably one hour before meals. Alternatively, simply enjoy Manuka honey pure or use it as a spread on bread, with muesli or yoghurt, or stir it into hot tea or milk, as MGO is largely insensitive to heat. Diabetics should consider Manuka Honey just like ordinary honey according to the bread units.
Note: Infants and small children under one year of age should not consume honey. Children from the age of 1 year can safely take Manuka honey.
