Most aloe vera products contain carrageenan which is a no-no for me. George's aloe vera juice tastes OK but that might be because the helpful properties are distilled out of the juice. At any rate it did not help me very much.
Forever aloe vera juice does not have carrageenan but has the following ingredients:
Aloe Vera Gel, Sorbitol, Ascorbic Acid (Antioxidant), Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate (To Help Protect Flavor), Sodium Benzoate, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol
The alcohol sugars such as sorbitol, xylitol, manitol, maltitol, etc. are almost as bad for me as carrageenan. They produce symptoms for me almost immediately after eating them. It's too bad because xylitol is in gum and some chewable supplements and candy that I really enjoy.

No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 is very helpful. Food journal instead of SCD.
Watch gluten, lots of fruit & vegetables (but no plums or kale), no soda, no HFCS, no xylitol or sorbitol, no trans fat, no shellfish, few processed foods, no carrageenan.
