A source of well-being
Our FORT DE GOURMETS product line contains active molecules, present only in authentic Mānuka Honey. The virtues of our Honey are highly recognized worldwide for their natural antiseptic and restorative properties.
These antibacterial and healing properties are extraordinary, so much so that they strengthen the health capital and participate in the well-being of consumers. In particular, Mānuka Honey is known for accelerating the healing of light wounds, burns, specific skin problems and everyday ailments.
In 1981, Professor Peter Molan began his research into the antiseptic properties of Mānuka honey. He discovered that due to its exceptional concentration of Methylglyoxal, Mānuka honey has unique antibacterial properties.
Unlike other kinds of Honey, Miel de Mānuka by Fort de Gourmets is a natural source of pleasure, guaranteeing vitality. It has several specific markers important enough to guarantee the strengthening of the health capital of gourmets.
Genuine Mānuka honey contains unique plant phenols, some of which help prevent the growth of bacteria. The particularity of these molecules, known as Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA), acts as an armour for the active agents of Honey. Without these molecules, the latter deteriorates rapidly, thus significantly reducing their effectiveness. Non-Peroxide Activity is usually calculated based on Methylglyoxal (MGO) concentration.
Methylglyoxal makes this nectar an effective ally in preventing everyday ailments. To measure these benefits, Mānuka honey has several rating labels: MGO, NPA or UMF.
While the MGO label only measures the concentration of the Methylglyoxal molecule, Miel de Mānuka by Fort de Gourmets uses the UMF "Unique Mānuka Factor" index. The particularity of this label is to evaluate the quantity and joint action of the set of markers naturally present in Mānuka honey. This assures the origin, purity and quality of the Honey.
UMF stands for "Unique Mānuka Factor." The UMF standard includes rigorous tests, audits and controls to ensure that the Honey is authentic, natural and unadulterated.
The UMF is the only scoring system that measures the signature of these key components. These markers include Leptosperin, Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and Dihydroxyacetone (DHA).
An independent accredited scientific laboratory tests each batch. The UMF index varies depending on the quantity and quality of these markers. The higher the concentration index of these markers, the more beneficial its action will be for the consumer.
Which indices fit your needs
The antibacterial effects are useful mainly for external (e.g. with a bandage) and internal (mouth and throat) applications. For a more intense therapeutic use, buy a 500g honey jar with an MGO 829+ rating (UMF/NPA: 20).
