Hawaiian Spirulina - History
Various types of kelp and other sea plants have been used traditionally by coastal societies for centuries, the use of Spirulina as a food is a rather different story. Although its scientific documentation as a "superfood" did not occur until the 20th century, its first use was actually 200 years prior to that when a severe drought hit the South American continent. Facing starvation the indigenous people gathered green algae from tidal pools that were rapidly reproducing in the mid summer's heat.
It was not until World War II, however, when facing an embargo that the Japanese government created the Society for the Study of Algae. After intensive research two strains were found to have the perfect complement of protein, carbohydrates, minerals and essential fatty acids necessary to support human life. These were called Chlorella (grown in fresh water) and Spirulina (grown in salt water). A brilliant scientist named Dr. Hiroshi Nakamura then created unique aqua (water) culture models capable of producing many tons of this life giving superfood. After the war the project continued and Dr. Nakamura traveled to the United States to share his discovery with another brilliant phyco-biologist (sea plant biologist) named Dr. Christopher Hills. Together they planted the seeds of research over 30 years ago that have resulted in spirulina taking its place among the most powerful health promoting foods on Earth.
