Perfect Chlorella History
Even though chlorella has existed on earth for over 2 billion years, it was first identified in 1890 when Martinus Beijerinck, a Dutch microbiologist, was studying pond algae. In the early 1900’s, scientists from various countries discovered that chlorella was 60% protein and multiplied very quickly, so they began to research how chlorella might be used as a source of food. Since then, there have been thousands of studies conducted in countries all over the world and chlorella has become the most researched algae ever!
By 1950, a Carnegie Institute study concluded that chlorella could indeed be grown on a large commercial scale and could help solve the world’s hunger problem. But the Japanese, who had been using chlorella for many years for its impressive health benefits, were the ones to develop the technology to actually grow and harvest chlorella commercially. Today, chlorella is grown in filtered fresh water ponds under the most favorable conditions.
Chlorella is very popular throughout Asia, but especially in Japan. In fact, the Japanese take more chlorella per capita than Americans take vitamin C, which is the United State’s most popular vitamin. They add it to tea, juice, soup, yogurt, noodles, and other foods. Chlorella has been called the “Green Gem of the Orient,” a term that describes just how respected this micro algae have become to these people!
In the United States, chlorella has been steadily increasing in popularity.
