INTRODUCING SKYR: THE ULTIMATE ICELANDIC BREAKFAST

Iceland's relationship with skyr goes back over a thousand years. In fact, skyr is mentioned in Viking records as a key part of their diet. Times may have changed, but Icelanders still depend on skyr to support their adventurous way of life.

Skyr is synonymous with simple Nordic living. It’s minimal on sugar and fat, whilst a great source of protein. It’s a delicious blank canvas to create all sorts of breakfasts, meals, or snacks at any time of the day.

OKAY, THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT BUT… WHAT ACTUALLY IS SKYR?

First of all, it’s pronounced skee-er. Like downhill skier, but with a hard R. Arla Skyr is produced from skimmed milk, which is pasteurised, has live cultures added, and is then strained. The result is quite unlike anything else on the breakfast table: thick, creamy, and packed with protein.
