Rising to prominence in the late 1940s, Chlorella was seen as a viable solution to the booming population’s increased food needs. This, in turn, created an opening for more thorough research, which has led us to our deep understanding of this single-cell green algae. Institutions such as Carnegie, Rockefeller, and UC Berkeley produced viable studies on its nutrient and mineral contains, as they believed it would ease the burden on crops following WWII. However, it was soon discovered that Chlorella is rather difficult to produce in abundance. And while we continue to cultivate it today, the levels are nowhere near what previous generations had anticipated. Still, its appeal continues to grow as more and more people seek healthful alternatives to otherwise unhealthy dietary options.
