Get to know more about Hesper Farm Skyr…
Sam took himself off to Reykjavik, looking for dairy’s Next Big Thing. He found it in the form of delicious Icelandic skyr. It’s a bit like yogurt, only naturally fat-free, containing next to no sugar and naturally full of goodness.
It turns out the future of dairy has in fact been around since the 9th century. First made in Viking times, super-nutritious, virtuously velvety skyr has been a staple across Scandinavia and Iceland ever since.
Skyr is made by incubating skimmed milk with live active cultures. The water contained in the milk – the whey – is then strained away. Per pot, we use about four times as much milk as an equivalent pot of traditional plain yogurt meaning it’s incredibly thick and beautifully creamy. Each pot of our skyr is a powerhouse, packing punch after punch of goodness. Per equivalent pot of typical plain yogurt, there’s about three times as much protein in skyr and three times more calcium.
The good news doesn’t stop there; there’s not a lot of sugar in our skyr (what sweetness there is, it’s all natural). The ingredients are simple and we don’t add anything artificial. The results are remarkably good and remarkably good for you.
