Historical use

Spirulina powder was a food source for the Aztecsand other Mesoamericansuntil the 16th century; the harvest fromLake Texcocoin Mexico and subsequent sale as cakes were described by one of

Cortés' soldiers.The Aztecs called it "tecuitlatl".

Spirulina was found in abundance atLake Texcocoby French researchers in the 1960s, but no reference to its use was made by the Aztecs as a daily food source after the 16th century, probably due to the draining of the surrounding lakes for agriculture and urban development.[5]The topic of the Tecuitlalt, which was earlier discovered in 1520, was not mentioned again until 1940, the French phycologist Pierre Dangeard mentioned about a cake called “dihe”, consumed by Kanembu tribe, African Lake Chad, Kanem (Chad, Africa). Dangeard studied the “dihe” samples and found that it is like a puree of spring form blue algae. Spirulina has also been traditionally harvested inChad. It is dried intodihé, which is used to make broths for meals, and also sold in markets. The spirulina is harvested from small lakes and ponds aroundLake Chad.

During 1964 and 1965, the botanist Jean Leonard confirmed thatdiheis made up of spirulina, and later studied a bloom of algae in asodium hydroxideproduction facility.
