Aloe Vera juice differences

On the label of Aloe Vera juice is mostly mentioned “inner fillet” or “whole leaf”. Those are the 2 different label names.

What is the difference you might ask? I explain it below but in order to understand it fully, I will start with the Most important; the ingredients.

Aloin: It is a chemical found in at least 68% of Aloe Vera species. It has a bitter taste and potentially dangerous laxative properties.

Emodin: A chemical compound.

Aloe Emodin: A variety of emodin found in Aloe latex. It can act as a stimulant or laxative.

Citric acid: A weak organic acid that is created naturally. It is used to stabilize the juice and improve flavor.

Sodium benzoate: Is a long-term preservative.

Potassium sorbate: A safe and non-toxic preservative in small quantities. If used for a long period of time excessively it can potentially lead to allergies.

What is Inner fillet (gel)?

Inner-filler or the transparent gel visible to the eye is the inner part of the leaf. Scientists say that this is the pure gel of the plant. This part contains most of the benefits the Aloe Vera leaf has to offer.

What is Whole leaf?

When “whole leaf” is mentioned on the label of Aloe Vera juices that means they were made by using the whole leaf. Most of them have had the aloin content filtered to a safe level. Beware that this must be mentioned on the label.

Aloe Latex contains Aloe-emodin which can act as a stimulant or laxative.

Therefore, it is in your best interest to always read the label and AVOID Aloe-emodin, Emodin, Aloin, and/or sodium benzoate.

Some people don’t like the taste of the 100% Aloe Vera juice. So if you are one of them, simply add it to your favorite drink of choice.


  • Ask your doctor if you can safely drink Aloe Vera juice and do not forget to share any medical history or upcoming surgeries.
  • Always follow the instructions given to you by your doctor or medical advisor.
  • Do not exceed the daily intake mentioned on the label.
  • Do not take Aloe Vera juice if you are allergic to it.

Pro tips before buying the juice!

  • Avoid buying any Aloe Vera juice with Sodium Benzoate because it is a man-made additive.
  • When you decide to purchase an Aloe Vera product, be extra careful of the ingredients. The percentage of Aloe Vera should be high (95%-100%) and it must be one of the first 3 ingredients mentioned.
  • The best ones are organic 99% – 100% with no water and the 1st ingredient is Aloe Vera.
