Description: Chlorella is a member of the seaweed family of plants that is a blue-green, spherical, single cell alga, which grows in fresh water and is believed to be one of the world’s most complete foods. It provides protein, carbohydrate, amino acids, fibre, peptides, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Each single cell measures between 2-10 micrometres in diameter, the plant rapidly multiplies where sun is prevalent using the chemical process known as photosynthesis.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that chlorella has been around 2 billion years? Fossils from the Pre-Cambrian period have been found which contain the presence of chlorella, but due to its minuet size the plant wasn’t discovered until the late 19th century when microscopes were developed that could detect the tiny alga. Intensive studies were carried out on the algae as a potential food source during the mid-20th century when the world’s population began to boom but its popularity soon faded, today it is sold as a super food.
