Aloecorp was one of the first Aloe manufacturing companies to have its Aloe raw material products certified by the International Aloe Science Council for content and purity. Aloecorp is also the only Aloe manufacturing company to date that produces “true Aloe” by a patented, proprietary method. Philosophically, Aloecorp follows a scientific approach to manufacturing Aloe vera, based on demonstration of biological activity, which is part of a broader philosophical concept to "Bring the Best of Nature to Mankind." Aloecorp has never strayed from these principles and has introduced its new product line manufactured by the Qmatrix® manufacturing process.
What is Qmatrix® Processing?
Qmatrix® is a quantum leap in quality Aloe vera manufacturing. The Qmatrix® process is not a single step in the process or a single piece of manufacturing equipment, but is a synergy of scientifically developed processes designed to retain a higher degree of product freshness and biological activity than any other production method in use today. Freshness was a key goal in the development of the Qmatrix® process, but it had to be combined with the retention of biological activity. Only Aloecorp has the knowledge and resources necessary to conceive of, evaluate and complete such an extensive re-engineering of the Aloe manufacturing process. Aloe manufactured by the Qmatrix® process combines the following:
- A patented method of polysaccharide preservation
- A patented method of manufacturing Aloe vera
- Proprietary Rapid High-Throughput Processes (RHTP)
- A patented Low Temperature Short Time (LTST) drying process that has been proven to retain heat-sensitive nutritional and functional Aloe components.
The remarkable results of the new Qmatrix® process can be found in the unparalleled quality of these new Aloecorp Aloe vera raw material products.
In-Process Validation at Every Step
The Qmatrix® process was developed through extensive research focused on compositional analyses at each step in the manufacturing process. The acetylated Aloe polysaccharide, a fundamental compound in Aloe vera bioactivity, was tracked in the product through each stage of processing for percent composition and molecular weight distribution. Aloecorp is well known for its ACTIValoe® product line that guarantees a minimum of 10% polysaccharides by dry weight and its patented process for ensuring the highest quality aloe.
Final product manufacturers and consumers with a desire for effective products choose Aloecorp as their supplier and depend on the scientific research the company provides to produce and promote their products with confidence. By evaluating processing effects on Aloe polysaccharides, Aloecorp has developed an understanding of Aloe vera manufacturing that is unparalleled in the industry. Hundreds of hours of research were required to evaluate and select manufacturing methods in order to retain both heat sensitive compounds and small molecular weight bioactive compounds. These compounds were identified by researchers over the last few years while developing this new manufacturing process.
Aloecorp has secured exclusive rights to the best technology available on the market today and likely for years to come for manufacturing Aloe. This means that no other supplier can produce aloe that meets Aloecorp’s new standards. Preliminary results indicate that Qmatrix®-processed material will have significantly higher nutritional content and tighter specifications for color, taste and smell. Formulators will be pleased to find a broad spectrum of mill sizes and bulk densities that will add ease and flexibility to their current and new product designs, as well as improved solubility and flow characteristics in the powder products.
Most impressive, the powder products manufactured by the Qmatrix® process will have superior freshness characteristics when reconstituted than fresh juice processed and shipped directly to customers’ finished product facilities. How is this possible? The Qmatrix® manufacturing process stabilizes Aloe rapidly and gently. In liquid form, even refrigerated Aloe slowly oxidizes, losing flavor, nutrition, and bioactivity. Now, with the Qmatrix® manufacturing process, Aloe can be stabilized indefinitely as a dry powder without preservatives and still retain the nutritional and sensory characteristics of fresh juice.
Qmatrix® is the Harvest of Science and Technology, only from Aloecorp.
