In fact, some brands of Manuka honey contain remarkably stronger dihydroxyaacetone, methylglyoxal as well as hydrogen peroxide, making it a high potent antibacterial substance.

Important secretes to note
There is a test used to measure the antibacterial properties against phenol. The test is called AMHA, while phenol is a disinfectant. AMHA test compares the antibacterial properties of specific honey types with phenol. The test put’s it clear that specific non-peroxide action can be distinguished only by a range of scientific tests directly associated to phenol standard.
How this relates to Manuka honey
With phenol standard rating set against Manuka, a rating ratio of 1 to 1 was established. Hence, the honey that rated UMF 20+ means it has a 20% phenol solution. Picking out the excellent UMF rating varies or simply depends on a person’s individual needs. Recent clinical tests reveal that Manuka honey with non-peroxide action level from UMF12 to UMF15 stands more effective against a wide range of resistant bacteria.
