This video will teach you how to filet aloe vera to make an Aloe vera gel health drink.
Filleting an Aloe vera leaf is the difference between making gel and juice. Aloe vera juice is made from the whole leaf, including the outer leaf that contains the bitter yellow substance known as aloin. Aloin is the phytochemical that is often cautiously used, by drinking aloe juice, as a laxative. I say “cautiously” because dosing for use as a laxative can be difficult and is not advised as severe diarrhea and cramping can occur.
But Aloe vera gel is the inner leaf only. By cutting away the outer leaf, you are removing most of the yellowish aloin substance making the gel palatable, healthy, and safe for consumption in much larger servings.
