Waitemata Manuka honey is a monofloral honey produced by bees that gather nectar from the Manuka tree (Leptospermum Scoparium), a native plant of New Zealand.

Some producers of Manuka honey are not members of the UMFHA and use a different scale that indicates the strength of methylglyoxal in their products. The most common alternative system is the MGO® scale, which indicates the measure of methylglyoxal in Manuka honey processed by members of its organization. A table of equivalents is below. This table has been compiled by the independent laboratory that assesses the UMF content for members of UMFHA.:
➡️ UMF 5+ approximately = MGO 83
➡️ UMF 10+ approximately = MGO 263
➡️ UMF 15+ approximately = MGO 514
➡️ UMF 20+ approximately = MGO 829
