Abstract

Objective: Aloe vera (Liliaceae family) is a widely used plant for its medicinal properties. The objective of this work was to obtain hydroalcoholic extract using fresh plant material and its subsequent industrial scale. Material and methods: An obtaining methodology was designed for laboratory scale, being studied for different variants. The best variant was elaborated to bank, pilot and industrial scale. Stability during 24 months was studied. Results: The results were compared with obtained extracts by means of the traditional procedure. A technological process for the obtaining of hydroalcoholic extract of Aloe using fresh plant material was developed. The technological process was introduced satisfactorily at industrial level. Conclusion: The process is homogeneous and reproducible to the studied scale up.

Key word: Aloe vera, hydroalcoholic extraction, stability, scale up
