How is Mila Skyr made?
Mila Skyr is made from skimmed milk, which is why is so low in fat. Given that around 3 litres of milk go into one kilo of Skyr, it is also wonderfully creamy and rich in protein. Mila Skyr’s distinctive taste comes from lactic acid bacteria and microbial (non-animal) rennet. Although Skyr is eaten like yoghurt, it is, strictly speaking, not yoghurt at all, but a dairy product in its own rights with numerous beneficial properties.
Why do Mila make Skyr?
Here at Mila, we have always lived in harmonious balance between tradition and innovation, a philosophy which is echoed in Mila Skyr: The milk, sourced exclusively from South Tyrolean mountain farms, is transformed into an innovative dairy product made to the Icelandic recipe. A dairy product loved by the Vikings that has, at long last, found its way to the Italian market.
What sizes and tastes is Mila Skyr available in?
Mila Skyr is available in 150 g pots - just the right size for a snack - and provides around 25% of the recommended daily protein intake. Alongside plain Skyr, we also make five fruit flavours: Blueberry, raspberry apricot, vanille and mango-passionfruit.
Does Mila Skyr contain lactose? Is there a lactose-free version?
Skyr is made from cow’s milk, and, as such, contains milk sugar, otherwise known as lactose. At the moment, Mila do not make lactose-free Skyr.
