If you’re looking for a low fat, high-protein source of fermented dairy, you’d do well choosing our organic skyr yoghurt starter. Skyr is an Icelandic dairy product, and it’s been a provision of Icelanders for nearly 1,000 years. Similar to Greek yoghurt, it is a thick and rich dairy product that is more similar in texture to creme fraiche or a soft cheese than it is yoghurt. High in protein and low in sugar and fat, skyr has quickly become a popular product on the supermarket shelves.
Traditionally skyr is made using a fairly complex method of heating milk to scalding point and then keeping it there for 15-20 minutes. Often rennet is also added. For the inexperienced, heating the milk this way can often lead to it burning and ruining the taste of the skyr. We have tried to simplify the method for making skyr with our organic skyr yoghurt starter culture. It will require a yoghurt maker, but results are consistent and still produce an excellent result. We hope you will love it as much as we do.
