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.

Organic Skyr Yoghurt Starter

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.

3 Questions about Organic Skyr Yoghurt Starter Culture

  1. Carole says:

    Hi, is this suitable to use in a multi cooker with a yoghurt programme?

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi Carole, yes this would be fine to use with our yoghurt cultures. We use Instapots to manufacture ours 🙂

  2. Caroline says:

    Hi, can i culture non dairy milks using this culture?

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi Caroline, unfortunately these cultures only work best with animal milks. We do have a vegan yoghurt starter but this works best with soya milk not other plant based milks. Thanks Lisa

  3. Deborah Evans says:

    Hi could you tell me if your Skyr yoghurt culture has the live bacteria in for gut health?
