Freezing has no adverse effect on the quality of the product and on the sensitive ingredients. However, the consistency of the gel must be impaired.

Aloe Vera Drinking Gel liquefies honey only when the temperatures are clearly below zero.

Can I cut an Aloe Vera plant at home and simply drink the gel?
It is not advisable to consume the pure leaves of the Aloe Vera plant in unprocessed form. It is necessary to separate the bark of the leaves from the inside gel. A layer of aloin, that adheres under the cortex, must be removed before consumption. This should be done under expert guidance. All Aloe Vera drinking gels from LR are regularly tested for aloin.
On the other hand, Aloe Vera has a bitter taste in its pure form. But this is not the only reason that the gel get mixed with honey. This is after an old Aztec recipe. In any case, it is easier to consume the Aloe Vera Drinking Gel Honey from LR.
What is the effect of Aloin?
Aloin is a very powerful laxative, which can lead to diarrhea when taken in high concentrations.
Why does LR only use the Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller for the production of Aloe Vera products? How does it differ from other genres?
There are more than 200 Aloe Vera species. Barbadensis Miller is the only variety that can be used as food. Therefore LR uses exclusively Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller for the production of its Aloe Vera products. The frequently mentioned aloe arborescens contains a lot of aloin and is not suitable for consumption. The aloin has a very laxative effect. In addition, the gel of this plant is dark brown, very sticky and in short didn´t meet the quality requirements of LR.
What are in-process controls and what role do they play in producing Lr Drinking Gel?
In-process controls are an important and very comprehensive process to monitor the entire manufacturing process step by step.

This is regularly checked by analyzing SGS Institut Fresenius GmbH.
