Abstract:

Aloe vera has a long history as a medicinal plant with diverse therapeutic applications. This study determined biochemical composition and enzymatic activity of Aloe vera leaves. Five genotypes of aloe vera leaves were analysed biochemically and enzymatically. Germplasm IC-112517 showed maximum gel percentage (97.00 %), maximum moisture percentage (97.03) and IC-112527 contain maximum per cent of carbohydrate (64.20%), total mineral (11.10%) and total sugar content (30.07%) and total chlorophyll content (0.20 mg/gm). The germplasm IC-285626 showed maximum per cent of crude fibre content (11.43%). Germplasm IC- 112527 showed maximum catalase enzyme activity (1.92unit/ml) and peroxidase enzyme activity (1.67 unit/ml). Overall this investigation has provided a succinct resume of information regarding the biochemical composition and enzymatic activity of Aloe vera leaves. It would be worthwhile embarking on an intensive scientific experimentation and investigation on this valuable medicinal plant and to promote its large scale utilization.
