Quality Standards



The science behind our Manuka 


The critical driving force behind the active antibacterial effect of Manuka honey and oil is Methylglyoxal (MGO), which is contained in the nectar of the Leptospermum (Manuka) flowers. The strength and potency of Manuka products is directly measurable by the level of MGO present.

All of our honey products come with an MGO rating so you can quickly and easily see the strength and quality of the honey you are buying.

NOt all tests are created equal

It’s not just MGO that gives Manuka its unique properties.

Leptopserin and Methyl Syringate are chemical identifiers that are only found in Manuka honey. It is very easy to differentiate between a fake product and natural Manuka honey, as only honey containing these compounds can be considered pure Manuka honey.

We adhere to strict quality controls to ensure that honey that bears our label is of a high-quality. All of our honey batches are independently tested, not only to ascertain their strength, but also to verify that our honey is clean and pure Manuka honey.

The AMHA Mark of Authenticity

Our quality testing methods are supported by the Australian Manuka Honey Association (AMHA), which is the leading organisation for the provision of robust science-based criteria to identify, define and authenticate Australian Manuka honey. 

The AMHA recently launched their Mark of Authenticity, developed by Australia’s leading manuka scientists to give consumers confidence that any honey they buy that bares the mark is 100% authentic Australian Manuka honey.  ManukaLife honey bares this mark, assuring you that they manuka honey you buy from us is genuine, quality, Australian manuka honey.
