Aloecorp Offers New Processing Technology

October 31, 2005

Aloecorp introduced its Qmatrix proprietary processing technology, a multiphase aloe manufacturing process consisting of technological innovation and processing upgrades that produce an aloe crystal flake. Qmatrix also allows for the simultaneous dehydration of whole foods, producing a powder that can easily be reconstituted, bottled or packaged dry. Aloecorp has produced a line of currently available Value Added products, including Aloe Plus Blueberry, Aloe Plus Cranberry and Aloe Plus Raspberry. Aloecorp has also entered a new product development partnership to produce a line of Value Added Aloe Plus Oils—using vitamin E, flax seed oil and olive oil—that can add fortification to a host of products, such as functional foods, supplements, after-bath talcs and makeup.
Other Qmatrix proprietary processing product benefits include reduced moisture absorbance and targeted bulk density, providing easier formulation and flow characteristics. Aloecorp’s new dehydration technology also provides a homogeneous dry product that does not separate when homogeneous liquids are dried together. More info: Website: www.aloecorp.com; (360) 486-7400.
