The work in the development of unconventional foods has been made necessary by the consideration of siege situations and development of closed ecological systems. The algae studies to date made on Chlorella pyrenoidosa and Chlorella 71105 indicate that algae fulfill several important requirements which include a source of high protein food, a means of converting urea to food, and a method of photosynthetic gas exchange for use in closed systems.
