2420-600=1820, 1820 divided by 300 =6.06, 6.06 + 10.5(if this is your npa number) = 16.5. It is just a guide and not accurate, there are other equations so dot take it as gospel.

Do you mean the formula to predict how your manuka honey will grow and change into the future?

depends on storage temperature as well, at lower temp a higher percentage of DHA goes down the chemical pathway to MGO (but painfully slowly).   at higher temperature the conversion happens

Don’t you divide DHA with MGO or vice versa or something? My tests come with a forecast of growth .. currently awaiting this. 

 

How’s everyones numbers been this year? 

Been a heavy flowering down here.

There are some around, but some work better on new honey but not if its been stored etc.

DHA - 600 =? / 300 = ? + npa/umf = potential. but its not accurate just an idea.  

Nothing is perfect.

There goes that science thing again.

So if I got DHA 2,420/MGO 283 =8.5

So my NPA is 10.5+8.5=19+ maximum NPA activity is that correct?

at higher temperature the conversion happens faster but more DHA disappears down pathways into compounds other than MGO
