3 in 1 testing

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

got the following results back after 3 in 1 test.....

 

DHA mg/kg 1430

HMF mg/kg 3.3

MGO mg/kg 223

 

would you press on and do the 5 in 1 with these results?

 

cheers

Based on those results your honey will grow to have around 490 mg/kg of MG after 136 weeks, which is equivalent to an NPA/UMF of about 15+. We find about 90-95% of honeys of that grade pass the MPI test as monofloral manuka, so it's almost certainly worth a try.

If it wasn't so expensive, it would be worth re-stirring, sampling and retesting. There is a whole science in manufacturing concerning proper mixing, stirrer types and sampling, and I would guess that if the manuka was particularly thixotropic, it would take a long time to slowly stir - to not cream to get a tank truly blended. I am so old I had to attend lectures on it all.

yea it was mixed over night at least 15 hours. because the honey was so thick it looked like jelly when i was trying to put it in the drums. the last bit in the tank didn't even run into the drums. i had to push it to the hole at the bottom, and the bottom of my tank has a good lean towards the hole.

Keep in mind that this Manuka standard debacle was created by MPI the same outfit Apinz want us to sign a GIA with.

needs to be over 400 to be classed Manuka 

needs to be between 20 and 399 to be called Manuka blend.

with 2map over 5.

Id say still a very saleable batch.
