George Warren, an Independent research chemist in Houston, Texas, developed the special processing method that prevents the spoilage without diminishing the essential properties of the Aloe Vera plant. This new method completely eliminates the aloins, which gives a bitter taste (and the greenish color) to Aloe Vera juices. GEORGE'S ALOE VERA also successfully removed the starches and sugars from the polysaccharide molecular chain and thus, George's "Always Active" Aloe requires no refrigeration, will not spoil in its natural state. This method adds no water, no preservatives, and no chemicals of any kind. The finished product looks and tastes like spring water.
