Aloe vera is a medicinal plant with a high content of water-soluble vitamins and amino acids. The plant is a natural wound healer and natural regulator of metabolism, also acting as a tonic for the digestive system and arranging the formation of synovial fluid (found in the joints). Aloe cubes present textural properties and moisture retention, being used for natural thickening and to modify the viscosity of products such as bread and meat. Aloe gel can be used as a fat replacer in the preparation of cakes and enhances the shelf life of doughs.
Inside the aloe vera leaf, one can find a thick, transparent gel with a slightly bitter taste.
The aloe vera is said to have healing, antiviral and antibacterial properties. Therefore, despite the slightly bitter taste, a real hype about aloe products has emerged. Aloe vera bubble tea is also a trend.
