    Spirulina is a bluegreen algae, found in spiral-shape. For these microorganisms cell division occurs by binary fission. Since this material contains chlorophyll a, like higher plants, its classification as an algae belongs to Chyanophyceae class; but it is also as a bacterium due to its prokaryotic structure. Aztecs exploited this microorganism as human food. Its chemical composition includes proteins (55%-70%), carbohydrates (15%-25%), essential fatty acids (18%), vitamins, minerals and pigments like carotenes, chlorophyll a and phycocyanin. Due to its nutritious profile, Spirulina is considered as an excellent food for mankind.
