Cape Aloe ferox powder used in medicinal products as well as animal feeds.
Cape Aloe ferox powder are manufactured from the sap of the Aloe ferox plant. The sap is extracted from the plant and then boiled to remove impurities. The boiled sap is then poured into tins and left to cool down and solidify. The solidified sap is then mechanically broken down and milled into powder. Cape Aloe ferox powder has two variants with an aloin(barbaloin) content of 10 - 18%(Port Elizabeth Aloe) or with an aloin(barbaloin) content of 18 - 24% (Mossel Bay Aloe). This variation in aloin content is due mainly to the region in which the Aloe ferox plants grow.
