Pharmachem self-affirms GRAS for aloe leaf powders
Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary, Improve USA, has announced the self-affirmed GRAS status of its decolorized inner gel and whole aloe leaf powder products for use in food and beverages.

“Aloe vera has been used in topical preparations for years, and its benefits as a soothing moisturizer are well known,”​ said Peter Hafermann, President of Improve USA. “More recently, aloe vera has become popular for oral use in dietary supplement applications in tablets, capsules and beverages.

"Our Industry is showing interest in including Aloe vera in food systems. The GRAS status of our ingredients allows our customers to include our Aloe vera powders as food ingredients in their products, including, but not limited to: fruit juices, baked goods, teas, meal replacements, protein based products, just to name a few.”

The GRAS determination for the powder products was reviewed by an independent expert panel qualified with the relevant scientific training and experience, said the company.
