The “Activity Rating” of honey is a standard developed by researchers and the “active honey” industry to define the strength of Leptospermum honey for medicinal and therapeutic use.
Essentially the higher the NPA (Non Peroxide Activity) which we have termed ULF+ (Unique Leptosermum Factor), the greater the medicinal effect. MGO ( Methylglyoxal) has been identified as one of the active components of active Manuka and active Jellybush honey. These two identification ( NPA and MGO) have been used by authorised laboratories as a basis for standardising the strength of these honeys.
The MGO component expressed in milligrams per kilogram, correlates with Tyagarah Apiaries ULF Rating.
