PURITI passes all legal requirements of the Manuka Honey Science definition as set by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI).
For monofloral Manuka honey to be certified, it must meet five specific attributes. If the sample fails to meet all five, the honey will be deemed as multifloral. At PURITI, all our Manuka honey is completely monofloral, ensuring maximum potency. PURITI passes all legal requirements of the Manuka Honey Science definition as set by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI).

UMF™® HONEY ASSOCIATION LICENSEE #2888
The unique UMF™® trademark is a Quality Mark certification that is internationally recognised and furthers the purity of PURITI. After rigorous independent testing and auditing conducted by accredited laboratories, this certification ensures that you’re buying the highest quality of New Zealand Manuka honey.
The UMF™ grade is primarily based on the concentration of the antibacterial methylglyoxal (MGO).
In addition, the chemical leptosperin, which is linked to anti-inflammatory properties, is another key determinant of the UMF™ grade. Unlike other Manuka honey, the UMF™ certification tests key DNA markers from the honey to determine the single-origin source as well as potency. To achieve this golden standard, the Manuka Honey is tested for three signature compounds unique to this rare honey. The honey must be monofloral, sourced and packaged in New Zealand to ensure authenticity.
