BONILLA BONILLA, María José  and  JIMENEZ HERRERA, Luis Guillermo. Industrial potentialities of Aloe vera. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2016, vol.50, n.1, pp.139-150. ISSN 0034-7515.

Aloe vera and the products derived from this plant like gel, have wide application in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, due to the wide variety of proven nutritional and pharmacological properties such as immunomodulatory, scarring, gastro-protective, antimicrobial and antioxidant ones. The global market for products with Aloe is growing and further development is expected for the following years; so one can assure the profitability of products from this source that meet the needs, requirements and current consumer trends. A search for scientific articles was conducted using the keywords in the databases (Proquest, Science Direct, Springer, EBSCO and others) of the System of Libraries and Information at the University of Costa Rica. The most appropriate articles were selected to classify the information contained in this paper. It is important to know the right process of the Aloe processing or derivatives thereof, in an industrial plant that would achieve the best use of this natural resource and at the same time, a quality end product.

Keywords : Aloe vera; therapeutic uses; processing.
