Iceland’s secret to healthy living now available in Malta 12/09/2017

Iceland’s secret to healthy living now available in Malta

Skyr, a remarkable dairy product unique to Iceland, has recently been launched in Malta. An innovative product for the local market, skyr has the consistency of strained yogurt but a much milder flavour. It has been a part of Icelandic cuisine for over a thousand years and is traditionally served cold with milk and a topping of sugar.

The Vikings introduced skyr to Iceland some 1,100 years ago and for centuries, it formed a cornerstone of the national diet, helping to keep people strong in living conditions that were often harsh. On family farms countrywide, it was the women who nurtured this dairy and passed on both the recipe and the original Icelandic skyr cultures from mother to daughter. It was some of these very same women, recipients of their mothers’ expertise, who, around 90 years ago, taught Icelandic dairy scientists the art of skyr-making.

Isey Skyr builds on this remarkable legacy. The basic recipe and the use of original cultures to ferment the skimmed milk remain the same. Protein rich, fat-free, creamy and delicious, Isey Skyr is as relevant to consumers today as it was centuries ago.

Made with more than three times the amount of milk that goes into typical yoghurts, Isey Skyr ensures an exceptionally high level of protein. It is available natural as well as in three flavours: strawberry, blueberry and vanilla, with the latter also being carb-free, in convenient single serve 170g pots with a spoon, making it the perfect snack for healthy, on-the-go lifestyles.

Isey Skyr is imported, marketed and distributed by Quintano Foods Limited, a member of the Farsons Group, and can be found in all leading outlets in Malta & Gozo. Visit www.iseyskyr.com.mt for more information.
