Skyr

Pronounced /skeer/

Skyr is an Icelandic dairy product, and it’s been a provision of Icelanders for nearly 1,000 years. Icelandic Provisions was developed in partnership with Iceland’s oldest farmer-owned dairy. It’s the only Skyr available in the US that’s made from the authentic Icelandic recipe using original Icelandic Skyr cultures. That’s what makes it thick, creamy and delicious.

Original Skyr Cultures

There’s a reason nothing else tastes like Icelandic Provisions

It’s because only Icelandic Provisions Skyr is made using Original Skyr Cultures that have been treasured and preserved in Iceland for hundreds of years. In the same way that sourdough starters are passed down through families and shared between neighbors, the women of Iceland have passed this tradition on through generations to provide the cultures in your cup of Icelandic Provisions.

How Skyr is Made

Each cup of Skyr begins with nearly four cups of milk

The milk is heated to just the right temperature before adding our Original Skyr Cultures, which help transform that milk into Skyr — just as Icelanders have done for hundreds of years.

Next, we flavor our Skyr with a combination of traditional berries and those native to Iceland and its Nordic cousins, a nod to the relationship these nations have shared throughout the centuries.

And, when we don’t use Nordic berries in our Skyr it’s for good (and delicious) reasons. For instance, while you won’t find coconuts growing in Iceland, coconut flakes and flavor make a fantastic addition to our Skyr!

Core Ingredients

WHEN A SINGLE CUP OF SKYR TAKES SO MUCH MILK, THE MILK WE USE MATTERS

Our milk comes family-owned farms in upstate New York who’ve never treated their cows with steroids or artificial growth hormones. Our Skyr is packed with protein and free of gluten, artificial flavors and sweeteners, preservatives. Plus, it’s vegetarian-friendly.

MORE PROTEIN

LESS SUGAR

On average, Icelandic Provisions Skyr contains only 11 grams of sugar per flavored cup, which is at least 5 grams or 30% less than 5.3 ounces of ordinary flavored yogurts that contain at least 16 grams of sugar.

It fueled the exploits of Vikings and farmers for generations. Imagine what it could do for you.
