Abstract: Aloe is used for several medicinal purposes therapeutic applications and antioxidant properties. Aloe vera contains large number of bioactive active compounds. These plants are one of the richest sources of health for human beings coming from nature. The purpose of this study is the investigation of morphology and nutritional difference between to Aloe vera genotypes. The differences of functional groups were studied by mean of Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Bitter type Aloe vera gel shows higher amount of Saponin and flavanoids than non bitter Aloe vera. Total phenolic content was also higher in bitter Aloe vera gel. Structural properties show the Smoothness and uniformity in the surface topography of bitter and non bitter Aloe vera.
