Aloin Analysis (HPLC)

Aloe vera plant grows in tropical and subtropical climatic conditions. There are 18 kinds of amino acids, twelve kinds of vitamins and twenty kinds of minerals in the juice. Aloe vera, a bitter taste, is included in the list of medicinal herbs selected by the World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, aloe vera plant is widely used today for cosmetic and medical purposes. African-origin aloe vera is now grown all over the world.

However, although it is widely used for medicinal purposes and is considered safe, this plant has adverse effects in some cases. It has been observed that not only allergic people but also everyone has some side effects. Such problems arise especially in aloe vera products mixed with impurities. Aloe vera is a plant with side effects if used for prolonged and very high doses.

In animal experiments, aloe vera leaves made from aloe vera have been shown to have a carcinogenic effect. This problem is due to the content of the aloine substance. Some aloe vera products contain more aloin. Therefore, experts say that aloe vera-free aloe vera products are safer.

The so-called HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) is a commonly used device for chemical analysis for analytical separation techniques. Due to its high sensitivity and readily adaptable to quantitative determinations, it is used to remove non-volatile or easily degradable compounds at temperature.

In accredited laboratories, aloin analyzes are performed by HPLC method within the scope of chemical tests and the standards prepared by national and international organizations and test methods accepted worldwide are followed. In this way, laboratories provide a more reliable and impartial service.
