What is Total Activity (TA)?
Many of you may be familiar with Manuka's UMF/MGO rating but what is Total Activity and how does it compare? Our honeys' antimicrobial quality is measured by Total Activity. The TA of a honey is a representation of how good it is at killing bacteria. Therefore, the higher the TA rating, the higher the antimicrobial strength. Any honey with a TA rating of 10 or higher may have beneficial antimicrobial benefits and these benefits increases as the TA level rises.
*Note that the UMF rating on Manuka is essentially the same as TA rating*
*All of our honey is tested using independent testing facilities such as Quality Service International (QSI) and Analytica Laboratories.
