  • Chlorella is one of the plants with the highest concentration of chlorophyll known today.
  • This is a particularly relevant food for people seeking to replace animal proteins with vegetable ones, since chlorella is rich in protein.
  • After World War II, a number of scientists studied chlorella as a source to eradicate hunger, due to its high protein content and relatively easy cultivation. Chlorella can be found in both fresh and salt water.
